Urnesha Posted January 4, 2017 Share Posted January 4, 2017 I'm on Day 3 of my first round and I'm wondering if it's normal to have intense gas and diarrhea while doing Whole30? For days 1 and 2 I didn't eat any starchy veggies at all, just veggies, chicken, eggs, nuts, fruit and complaint oils (coconut and olive). But I got a really bad headache yesterday (end of Day 2) and thought maybe I needed more carbs esp as I'm working out this week. So this morning I boiled a mostly ripe plantain and ate 1/3 of it with my eggs and veggies for breakfast and then another 1/3 of it with my salad (lettuce, spinach, celery, bell peppers, red onion, olives with balsamic and red wine vinegar and olive oil) and grilled chicken for lunch. About an hour after lunch the painful gas started followed by the diarrhea. I'm wondering if the newly introduced sugar/starch from the plantain could have caused the diarrhea? Or maybe my system is just getting used to all veggies all the time? I can live with the diarrhea itself but the very, very painful gas is horrible.
