Olivia R Posted January 7, 2018 Share Posted January 7, 2018 Hi! I'm on Day 7 of the whole30 and have had loose stools every day (at times I've had full on diarrhea). It's not that I've never experienced this before, I've been prone to diarrhea in the past, especially from spicy foods, but this is definitely excessive for me. So I have 2 questions, one is it normal to experience this much bowel upset at this point in the program? I'm seeing varying answers around the internet, and 2, if not, what can I do to change things? I'll give you a glimpse of what I've been eating in case there are any changes I could make. Breakfast - either a smoothie consisting of banana, spinach, raspberries, lemon juice, and almond butter, or a banana with almond butter if I'm running late; my Saturday breakfast yesterday was a fancy breakfast of sliced sweet potatoes with salmon, avocado, lemon, and chives. This morning I had some flounder (I've been craving fish! haha) Lunch - either a mix of roasted broccoli and cauliflower with pork, or roasted acorn squash with ghee, and sautéed mushrooms and onions Dinner - much more variety here, but lots of vegetables with a meat and usually potatoes. I've been using ghee and olive oil for my cooking fats (so they would be on the roasted veggies and potatoes and what not. Ghee is new for me, but not butter in general, and I tend to cook a lot with olive oil even before the whole30) Not really eating much in between as I haven't been all that hungry, but if I do it's usually a little leftover from dinner or a fruit/snack (nectarine and some nuts yesterday). I salt pretty much everything savory. I am taking the whole30 recommended pro-biotic most days (which i started about day 3 I think to see if it would help). I've never been consistent with my vitamins so I've taken a whole30 approved prenatal multivitamin probably twice this week (and only half the dose as it calls for 2 tablets, but I only took one each time since I figured I'm probably getting more nutrients from my food at this point). Thanks for any help you can provide! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
