I was asked today if I was pregnant. I am not pregnant. It was mortifying, but it was not the first time I've been asked this question. I am a size 4/6, 125lbs, 5'4. Not fat, but thin limbed, high-waisted, large-chested, and my lower-stomach is... (more)

I say, "Nope, just fat, but thanks for noticing." I then enjoy the look of horror on their face. Mean, but just desserts for asking such a rude, intruding question.

Anyone tried Prescript-Assist? My nutritionist told me to buy it and take every other day for symptoms of my celiac and colitis. It has been great! I have also started taking entocort (which I am not thrilled with), drinking lots of bone broth,... (more)

You could also try to add fermented foods to your diet since they are a good source of probiotics. Common ones many eat are kefir and sauerkraut.

I didn't have a single GI issue during the first 30 days of Paleo. To be honest, I didn't feel any drastic improvement like people claim here (and I didn't cheat). Towards the end, my stress levels from work were really bad + slight depression... (more)

It could be a sensitivity to a particular food. Your best bet is to start keeping track of exactly what you're eating and when, and when you have symptoms. You could also do a "clean" version of the diet and gradually add things back in to see if... (more)

This is a very common experience. Start with a teaspoon or less and work your way up. As to a definitive answer to why this happens in some people I don't think I've ever seen one. Lots of speculation but no reasons that will pass any... (more)

Try finding some charcoal tablets. Take them and you should see them in about 24 hours or so. You can then gauge how long food is actually in your body and your total digestion time. Obviously, this will change depending on what you eat and how... (more)

If you're talking about coconut milk, you may just be having trouble dealing with all the fat. It can act as a laxative, not necessarily as a diuretic. You may need to start slowly, then ramp up the fat over time so your body can deal with it. If... (more)
