    Constipation/bloating

    I tried the digestive enzymes, and the results are AMAZING! No more bloating, and things are moving along...if you know what I mean. Thank you for the suggestion!!!

    Can't believe I've never tried DEs! I'll give them a go and let you know if I find them helpful. Thank you, everyone!

    Where do you buy digestive enzymes? I've heard Robb Wolf talk about them, too, but I'm not familiar with brands or recommended dosages. Suggestions?

    Constipation/bloating

    OK, more info! I do have a history of ulcerative colitis, but I've been in remission for about 4 years, and I've managed to get rid of all medications by managing my diet. I eat a lot of the same foods on a regular basis: eggs, chicken, beef, salmon, sardines for protein; spinach, sweet peppers, broccoli, romaine lettuce, a rare sweet potato; berries (black, blue, raspberries, and strawberries), pineapple, cantelope, pears; and for fats I eat olives, olive oil, coconut butter, avocado, and some nuts (had to cut out nuts this week as a trial because I was getting waaaay too hooked on almond butter and eating it like it was going out of style!). I have to cook most veggies because raw ones in bulk are hard on my gut. I eat Zone-like portions based upon my lean body mass, but I try to listen to my body and tweak it as needed. Please let me know what other info would help. Thanks!!
  5. I've been Paleo/Whole 9 for about 4 weeks, and my gut has slowed down like nobody's business! I was eating fish, eggs, grains, legumes before this (I was dairy-free), but no chicken, beef, etc., until I started paleo. I'm sure this could be a big factor with the constipation, but I thought I'd have a flatter stomach without all the sugar and lectins. I take probiotics and fish oil daily. Any tips, please?? Thanks!
