Haren.13 Posted April 26, 2014 Share Posted April 26, 2014 Prior to whole30 my BMs were very sporadic. I would usually have to stop halfway through a workout to run to the bathroom, and then it would be almost-but-not-quite diarrhea. When that wasn't happening, I would go several days between BMs and become very uncomfortable, sometimes taking milk of magnesia to get things moving. This was a huge part of my motivation to do whole30! So, during week 1, I was having less stomach/intestinal pain, and alternating between not going for a couple days and then the same as before. Around day 10 things pretty much stopped moving all together :/ I was intentional about lots of veggies and fiber, but nothing. After 4 days of this I (apparently mistakenly) took one dose of milk of magnesia. That definitely got things started, and now I'm having diarrhea 4ish times a day. I absolutely prefer this to what was happening before, but I don't know what I'm doing wrong or how to stop it. Or is my system just still adjusting? It's been 6 days now of diarrhea :/ Example of my meals: Breakfast - 1 cup butternut squash soup with sausage and coconut flakes, 1 egg if still hungry Lunch - large spinach salad with chicken, hard boiled egg, sunflower seeds, tomatoes, cucumber, oil/vinegar or mayo-based dressing; sweet potato Dinner - palm-sized serving of chicken, pork, or beef, lots of veggies (cauliflower, broccoli, carrots are the staples), sometimes fruit (watermelon, cantaloupe, or strawberries), some sort of sauce for meat/veggies for fat I usually have nuts and/or raisins if I'm hungry throughout the day, though I've been trying to cut way back on that and increase my fat at meals instead. Post-WO meal is leftover meat from dinner Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
