This is probably TMI, but is it normal to be spending a lot of time on the toilet? I'm day 3 of my first round and I guess I thought it could happen, but unsure to what extent!

Also gas? Particularly the smelly kind?

Any time you make a big change to your diet, it can take some time for your digestive system to get used to the changes, so if you're now eating a lot more vegetables or a lot more meat you may experience these types of things.

Vegetables are good, but some can be harder to digest and more likely to cause gas for some people, especially cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower, or cabbage. If you suddenly added a whole bunch more of these than you normally would have, maybe cut back and try some different vegetables. 

Raw vegetables are more likely to cause gas than cooked, so if you've been eating a lot of raw vegetables, switch to some cooked ones for a few days and see if that helps.

Drink plenty of water, and hopefully everything will sort itself out soon. If you do need to take something like Imodium, that's okay.
