Terri822 Posted September 8, 2016 Share Posted September 8, 2016 Anyone have success with HCL + pepsin capsules in aiding digestion? (Constipation particularly). I take calm magnesium before bed, 1 tbsp, digestive enzymes , probiotics and fermented foods and still have issues on and off. I've started to try a bit of GAPs to lower starch , pretty much eliminating potatoes and plantains. And increasing coconut oil instead of avocados for fat. Also doing 1 tbsp collagen mixed into coffee and tea. Started making bone broth as well. Typical day: breakfast: 2 -3 whole eggs plus 2-3 oz shredded chicken or beef sautéed in 1 tbsp coconut oil plus a ton of veggies, half a bag each of spinach and shredded cabbage and whatever dinner veggies are left lunch: 3 cups mixed veggies cooked in coconut oil with 4-6 oz protein - ground beef, chicken ect & a handful of olives dinner: I was doing a huge raw salad w broccoli cooked in coconut oil with raw carrots, capers, olives, avocado, onion, mushrooms and tomatoes with a bunch of olive oil and ACV and maybe a can of tuna mixed w mayo or 4-5 oz chicken or steak.. I think steak is hard for me to digest so limiting beef it ground beef. ill have my first meal a bulletproof coffee with some chicken salad before I workout and if I have time a few bites of chicken with some pumpkin before breakfast... Often I'll skip this and have breakfast ... I know it's not ideal for fat after working out tho! Sometimes not often though bc of the nuts I'll have some coconut/cashew/apricot energy balls pre workout or as a snack if needed that I make for my husband. I cut out all nuts to see if it makes a difference. I finished my first whole30 a few weeks ago and still eat paleo but my birthday week I did have cashew ice cream and plantain brownies a few times ... So I learned maybe once a week that's ok but not 3 times a week i workout daily and am breast feeding. After starting whole30 I have noticed not needing snacks during the night while nursing so that's good! And the second week when I started this in July I did have diarreah and water retention, cramps ect and took that as a good sign , possibly my gut lining healing? I also start my morning w lemon water sometimes w cayenne and a probiotic . Thanks for any input!!! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
