samalope Posted March 23, 2018 Share Posted March 23, 2018 Okay I have a confession to make. I loved doing my first round of Whole30 back in November. However, I had serious issues with my bowels that I think are starting to happen again. (Constipation, and hemorrhoids for the first time in my life) So before my first Whole30, I had regular, sturdy bowel movements. However, within a week or two of my first Whole30 they turned into pebbles and seriously have not changed back SINCE. I mean even after a month of eating grains, breads, beans, etc., my poops have not been the same! They remain to be pebble like. Sometimes they were more normal and solid one-poo-at-a-time but that was like 20% of the time. Now on this 3rd round of Whole30, I am on Day 6 and I have had bowel movements that are only HARD pebble-like (a month ago they were pebble like but easy to pass) and I am worried it will lead to hemorrhoids again which I obviously do not want! I have been drinking around 70oz of water daily. My weight is around 155lbs. My log is here to see I have read that probiotics can help with constipation, and I was wondering if they have worked for others? Or should I try changing some things in my diet first? Also, I am worried about laxatives and your body relying on something like that for normal bowel movements, are probiotics safer for you in the long Any insight would be wonderful!
