Amylong1985 Posted August 20, 2014 Share Posted August 20, 2014 Hi everyone! So thankful for this forum and all of the great information/motivation I've found here! I apologize in advance for the grossness/TMI that follows Ever since I started my Whole30 I've been having very regular BMs, several days bordering on diarrhea (especially in the first week-10 days). This is a big change, but a welcomed one, from my baseline as I typically struggle with constipation. Thus far I've attributed it to my increased dietary fat intake. Today is Day 17 for me, and this morning at work I started feeling terrible-- got very hot, nauseous, stomach cramping, and came very close to vomiting. Shortly after this I began having watery diarrhea and the stomach cramps got worse. Been to the toilet 6 times since then and the cramps continue. I'm wondering if there could be a connection between today's symptoms and the fact that I ate out last night for the first time during my Whole30. It was a work event that I had to attend, and I chose things that were compliant--sping mix salad with olive oil and balsamic vinegar, filet mignon, and roasted potatoes and asparagus (was also very tempted by the awesome-looking bread and chocolate cheesecake offered but I stayed on plan!) I was told that the veggies/steak were cooked with EVOO, but I'm now wondering if I accidentally ingested something that is not compliant and that's why I'm suffering today. If the vegetables were cooked in a seed oil, or dairy like regular butter was used to cook the steak, could that cause these types of symptoms? I can't recall any adverse reactions to dairy or seed oils in the past but am curious if I actually am sensitive to them and didn't know before my Whole30. Is it normal to still have GI upset at this point in the program? I know it could also just be a coincidental viral infection. In that case, is it ok to limit the cruciferous/green leafy veggies for a day or two until my stomach improves? Those foods tend to make my bowels move quicker and can sometimes cause cramping if I eat too many. Thanks in advance for any advice! Just ready to feel better...
