acouchy Posted November 10, 2014 Share Posted November 10, 2014 I will apologize now... this is not a fun topic. I am on day 8 of the autoimmune whole30. Up until now, everything has gone extremely well. I thought my biggest challenge would be breaking my sugar addiction. In reality, my first week without sugar was much easier than I ever thought it would be. I was so happy last night when I reached a week. Then this morning happens... bloody stool. Bloody stool has been my biggest fear. Background story... I have been wheat free for several years. When I went wheat free, I replaced wheat products with rice products. A year and a half ago I decided to ditch the processed rice products and replace them with salad and that is when I first experienced bloody stool. After an emergency trip to see my doctor he suggested a fiber drink. In the end I gave up and went back to rice bread. My current meals... Breakfast is usually a pork patty, grated fried yam, a piece of fruit and a date. Lunch is usually a kale salad with carrot and cucumber with some sort of meat. Dinner is meat with some veggies, a piece of fruit and a date. I drink about 5-6 glasses of water and have 3-4 cups of tea per day. In the last few days out of fear of this happening, I have also started eating a few prunes every day. I have not had any beets either. It is definitely blood. I am thinking this is a fiber issue but I seriously do not think I can eat much more than I already am. Then again, I have also had the thought that it could be a intestinal bacteria issue. I really do not want to have to stop my autoimmune Whole30. Any ideas and/or advice would be appreciated. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
