I'm dealing with that at the moment and it's what's brought me here. A whey protein shake will have me literally passed out in 20 minutes. It's almost as bad with a large burger and salad. I can happily eat 100 grams of jelly beans and have no... (more)

From the literature it seems that almost all cases of GERD/acid reflux occur due to too little acid not too much. I think this is because the stomach needs to contain a certain amount of hydrochloric acid before it shuts the LES. Correct me if I'm... (more)

Pete's advice about fiber has some validity but more because your body needs to adjust to a change in fiber intake than because there's any essential requirement for fiber. That's one of the myths of mainstream nutrition, I'm afraid. No one ever... (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)

It may be the coconut oil. It can cause some nasty nausea when you aren't used to it, and are eating it in large amounts. Even less than 2 teaspoons may be too much for you right now. Hold off on the probiotics and kombucha for now! You're... (more)
