Janiepopps Posted June 15, 2015 Share Posted June 15, 2015 Apologies for my first post being so, err, intimate! I'm 41, lactose intolerant 20+ years but only worked it out & eliminated dairy about 3 years ago which has had the most remarkable effect on my health. However my bowel still doesn't behave particularly well. I eliminated high fodmaps about 6 weeks ago although I can't say it made much of a difference to my gut. Now I am on day 8 of Whole30 (including the fodmaps rules). Whilst I'm not having the extreme gut symptoms that dairy would give me, I still haven't had a formed bowel movement since starting Whole30. I haven't fancied raw foods since starting so tend to eat stirfrys for most meals. I have a max of 1 coffee and day and drink hot water other than that. I am eating nuts (macadamias and cashews) which I only just got to the part in the book today that suggests they're not great for gut issues. I know from past experience that if I have a lot of fat then I get diarrhoea. If this is the cause, is my gut likely to toughen up and get used to it over time? Many thanks in advance x PS other than the gut issues and some cranky headaches I feel great, I even had some weird periods of euphoria on day 3 and 4!
