FatDave Posted August 22, 2013 Share Posted August 22, 2013 Hello all, Quick background - did my first Whole 30 a year ago, and since then, my wife and I are generally paleo eaters; however, while she was pregnant with our second child, we went full board off the wagon. After he was born, we did another Whole 30, and now I'm in the 'maintenance' phase where I'm still eating 99% paleo, but, added back some alcohol, socially, and I'm not cringing if there's a small amount of dairy in something. Still not eating any grains, legumes, processed foods, etc., and the majority of my food comes from local, organic CSAs and co-ops, or the local farm up the street. My question for anyone with any real knowledge on digestion - I've continually had diarhea or at least very loose BMs for so long, I cannot remember the last time a solid, single BM happened. It's not painful, and it's not repetitive - like, I'm not running to the bathroom all day, or anything like that - in fact, my body is on a pretty steady schedule. It's just I start to wonder, is something wrong? Does it even matter? 'Try eliminating x' doesn't seem to be helpful advice for me, because it just seems to happen no matter what I eat or don't eat. So many people have credited paleo with helping their digestion, but, it doesn't seem to do anything for mine. Does anyone have any advice, or, can anyone tell me if this even matters? I also tend to get gassy in the afternoon, regardless of what I have for lunch. For example, yesterday I ate leftover pork kebobs with red potatoes (yes, I am eating red and white potatoes, cooked responsibly) and today I had leftover ground pork, apple, cinnamin one-pot recipe with green beans. Both afternoons, I'm hoping no one walks into my office with a question... (and while I recognize that both days had pork, again, this is universal - another day is chicken drumsticks, another day is salad with steak, etc., etc.) Thanks in advance for any advice. -Dave Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
