monkeypuzzled Posted January 7, 2014 Share Posted January 7, 2014 Howdy. I've had IBS-M (alternating constipation and diarrhea, bloating, painful gas) for about 5 years now, so it's really no surprise my GI is reacting oddly to my Whole 30 (I'm on Day 7). I'm about to get kind of graphic, so my apologies to you all. I have kept things limping along, just barely, by using Natural Calm, probiotics and enzymes, but I'm still finding it very difficult to produce a bowel movement. The magnesium has kept things soft, but they're still hard to push out, and they come out in small soft blobs rather than one movement. I also feel the pressure to go many, many times a day (I think yesterday I produced some small amount of stool like 7 times?) but never feel "complete." Any suggestions for me? What could be causing this kind of pattern? Good God, I can't believe I'm writing about my bowel movements to strangers. Here's what yesterday's meals looked like, just as a sample: --mini-M1 (I find it hard to eat in the am) of one and a half sausages (W30 compliant) plus some cut-up raw veggies: peppers, carrots, cucumber, peapods, plus coffee with 1T coconut oil plus cinnamon buzzed in my blender. --M2, fried cauli-"rice" with leftover pot roast, kimchi, green onion, lime, cilantro and a fried egg on top --M3, soup made from homemade beef bone broth, leftover 5-spice pork ribs and bok choy. Salad made from avocado, tomato and red onion with cilantro and lime. One Satsuma and a couple of brazil nuts afterward. No workout yesterday, too busy.
