Question About Paleo Diet....
0

8 posts in this topic

I've been trying to be healthier and lose a few pounds and thought I would try to paleo diet since it seems to go well with my food allergies anyway. My problem is since I've been on it (6 days) I have had the diarrhea. Is this normal?

Hmm, that is a new one to me since it stopped my diarrhea. Im sorry your dealing with it :(

Are you maybe having a candida die off? I know its a common symptom of that to have diarrhea. I wish I could help more but didnt find much when I did a search on the net for you. Hopefully someone will be able to answer better.

I read in Protein Power that diarrhea is common when people go on a low carb diet.

You must be not eating very many carbs even though the Paleo Diet isn't as low carb as Atkins.

I also get it when I first start a low carb diet. It should clear up in a week or two. It's your body adjusting to the new way of eating.

I did not get that; however, I have been plagued with C my whole life, which cleared up with Paleo -- so maybe I would've gotten it had my problem been D. I will say this:

the other day I walked the 2-1/2 miles to school and when i got there (barely in time) had to sit on the pot for 20 minutes with scary D. (Never mind the misery of public pooping.) I thought about it. I was definitely not glutened. I think it was walnuts. I had had a huge blob of walnuts and prunes the day before (okay, prunes are a bit notorious too)...

nuts can be hard to digest. So if you've been eating lots of those....?

Hope you feel better. If not, maybe you can ease into Paleo...

Are you eating something you don't normally eat?

I haven't been eating too differently. I normally eat a little bit of rice every day and that's it for grains. Today I had a cup of rice and my D is gone. I don't know if the diet is right for me. :huh:

I don't have a ton of experience with the condition. My experience is in changing locals and diets often. If you switched to the Paleo diet and started to have D right away, there's a high probability that it's due to an increased consumption of fruit/nuts/veg. Switching from a high-carb diet to a mostly-protein diet will due that to a lot of people. If you keep fruits and nuts to a low and up the rice for a few days, I bet that it goes away. Just an idea. ;)

    • Marip, Have you been diagnosed with celiac disease or Non-celiac Gluten Intolerance?  I notice you joined in 2014.  Did you ever go guten free?  How can we help?   Sorry, I'm not a stool expert!  You could Google it...  Malabsorption?  Standard lab tests that check for anemia and vitamin deficiencies, etc.  should help make that diagnosis.  
    • You can eat just a slice or two (or equivalent) of bread a day for accurate testing.   I understand about the high deductibles.  We're self-employed and we pay for our health insurance. 
    • Sure, if it's gluten free, then fine.  I am very allergic (like anaphylactic) to ibuprofen and aspirin.  So, in my case, I would just tough it out.  Go to bed.  Sleep it off.....eventually. My money is on the garlic and onions.  I can't consume those either (damn that zonulin/leaky gut -- google it along with Dr. Fasano).  I just season with salt, pepper.  Boring.  But no gut issues.  I'm hoping like my lactose intolerance (resolved), that I will get garlic and onions back.   Finally, sometimes just eating anything can hurt when you still have intestinal damage.  Hopefully, you'll feel better in two or three hours if it's celiac related.  Longer if it's an intolerance (leaky gut thing....) Hugs!      
    • I read on their website that all Advil is gluten free, I had such bad pinching cramping today(which I don't why since I prepared all my food at home today.) I made a pot roast, salt garlic, onions...No gluten but still pain, That's the only thing I ate today..I don't eat breakfast or anything.   Anyways.   Is it a good idea to take Advil for the cramping? That's how I would describe it like someone is reaching inside me and pinching me and twisting my insides.    This is what I took  
    • I'll give my PCP a call tomorrow and see what they can offer. My only worry is the expense as anymore tests will put me behind in being able to afford to see the GI. I have high deductible insurance but get money put into my HSA. I'm still trying to pay off the CT scan though. Which is why I'm trying to pick and choose which poses the greatest risk for me right now and what can wait. (Though I would prefer not to wait on any of it.)

      I really do hope its only IBS. Though I always worry IBS is more or less a doctors way of saying "I have no clue" at that point. :C

      Again, I'll be sure to give my PCP a call tomorrow then and see what the options are. I can feel a lot better trying the blood work first. however, once that is done, do I still need to be on a gluten diet before the endoscopy? Also, is it ok if I still mildly reduce the gluten. As in, can I avoid a whole wheat pasta dinner, but still be eating the peanut butter crackers? That sort of thing. Again I guess that is more of a doctor related question. I just wasn't sure if in order to raise your chance, you have to mass consume gluten or not. (Its already in just about everything to begin with.)   --Edit--
      I just now reread the part that you still need to be on the gluten foods even for biopsy so I'll be sure to do that too.
