    Constipation--honest post

    To all, Thank you for the posts. -With the detox tea-it's just herbal tea with a fancy name -I increased my diet after this prior post to incorporate at least a 1 cup of cooked leafy greens daily and backed off of the daily amount of sweet potatoes and bananas and with a daily sip of mineral oil for a 5 days. And that helped. -I continued to be Whole30 from Jan. 4 to Feb 21. I had compliant nuts with peanut oil, that I wasn't aware of, on the 21st of Feb halting my clean streak. I continued the Whole30 to this day with an antibiotic (Levaquin) and inhaler (symbicort) w/ a probiotic for suggested pneumonia with a probiotic started March 2nd to now. -My diet and status feels some what out of whack now even though I'm eating compliant foods and staying on top of meal planning. --I sometime get EXTREMELY tired after my meals (nap worthy) --Get cold after meals when digesting --WO are a struggle with muscle stress --difficult to go more the 4 hours without a meal (tired, irritable) --bloated after meals, uncomfortable --sleep very soundly at night avg. 6 hours per night. 8-9 weekends --easy to fall asleep -I do try to eat a meal if I so happen to last 4-5 hours in between meals even though I'm not hungry (good or bad idea?) I was trying to get on a schedule even though I wasn't hungry I'd eat that timed meal, yet I'm unsure if that's necessary. Regular day- B- cup leafy green cooked in bone,meat,or veg broth (drink rest of broth 2-6 oz), 2 eggs in oil, whole avocado, banana, mango, chia seeds, 1-3 oz meat -ie beef liver(yet I've recently cut out meat bc I'm so bloated afterwards) or loaded chunky smoothie where I still need to chew-4 stalks asparagus, 3-4 dates, cacao powder, chai seeds, avocado seeds, 3/4-1 cup raw leafy green, 1/2 - 1 avocado, banana S-celery stalks with apple and/or mango, 4-5 strawberries, lemon juice L- 12 oz salmon salad (like our tuna salad) or thai curry mix (all compliant vegs) with sometimes cup of fruit S- maybe bite of wheatgrass D- same as lunch and/or with spaghetti squash and mushrooms with sometimes cup of fruit 2nd D (random days)-same as L w/o fruit amount 50-70 oz water daily - I try to avoid grazing and will snack if I don't want another meal because it was only 2 hours since the prior one. So I try to eat a larger meal to only feel totally bloated and uncomfortable afterwards. Thoughts? What is a good time to stop eating even though I might be seriously hungry at night? And hot tea and snacks isn't cutting it. -Having a hard time differentiating between hunger and craving. I'll ask myself "am I craving it because it's a sugar mango or could I eat a burger?" Which I'm pretty sure I could eat either, even though I'd like to grab the easy-accessable sweet, mango instead. -The energy is decent one day then inconsistent the next with cold spells after eating. Totally confused. -Trying to manage through this to gain fat-adaption Once again thank you to whoever reads and notes on this Wolfgang

    Sorry this needs to be added in there as well- with lunch and dinner i have 1-3 servings of vegetables.
  4. Hello! So I'm currently ending Day 7 of not having a normal BM. I'm going blunt, I tried going yesterday and today only to pass maybe 5-6 hard, dense little rabbit turds. That was a struggle and didn't want to put any more stress down there (if you know what I mean). Hemorrhoids have been inflamed, even without the straining from yesterday and day. -I am on no medication -my crohns disease is in remission -I don't have pain, yet it's uncomfortable -bloating is steady and increased after eating -I perform abdominal exercises to get the muscles working -drink over 64 oz of water daily (trying to drink even more in this state) -tried incorporating caffeine, raw carrots, and apple cider vinegar mixed with water (usually helps me if there's an issue in the past), detox hot tea -began abdominal massages today Normal day of meals... Hot tea (green, ginger, mint, detox) B: 2 cooked eggs in EVOO w/ kale, black pepper, sea salt, turmeric//palm sized beef// raw grapes, raw avocado, raw whole banana with lemon juice on top L: Sage burger//raw grapes, raw avocado, raw whole banana with lemon juice on top (made up multiples, usually it's different yet that's all I had available that day)// raw carrot D: Whole30 mayo on compliant ingredients for chicken turkey salad (celery, dill, chives, grapes, avocado) 12 oz Hot tea (green, ginger, mint, or detox) S: sweet potatoes cooked in EVOO, rosemary, thyme, sprinkled avocado seed, sea salt, black pepper Hot tea (green, ginger, mint, detox) --thought hot tea would help I didn't want to get to the enzymes or magnesium yet I'm debating now. I'm on Day 25 and have been compliant throughout. I still get hungry yet become bloated afterward. I almost don't want to put anymore food down there. Never had an issue with any of these foods before or when on the Whole30 diet. 145lb (before I started Whole30 and not sure current weight) sleep is well workouts are an extreme struggle unlike before I started energy is steadying out and it's amazing not cold as much after eating mood is well I'm a chick Anyone that took the time to read this-thank you and I appreciate any time or help you put forth. For sure, I'm grateful (I know, theres a lot there) Enjoy the day wolfgang
