Diarrhea And Low Carb Diets...
0

6 posts in this topic

I recently limited all my carbs and have eliminated all grains from my diet. Most sugars, as well. I eat mainly meat, tofu, and vegetables, with an apple or berries thrown in daily. I take supplements in the form of an organic multi-vitamin, acidophilis, and fish oil. I've limited my dairy for the last two years, but I do have a little more than I did previously, which is where my suspicion lies, but I'm wondering if anyone else has any other suggestions? Is there something I might be missing? A vegetable I should be eating? I eat mainly broccoli, green beans, salad with spinach, romaine, and arugala, celery. I also have a serving of nuts a day. I feel great otherwise, and this is the first time I've not had sugar spikes all day long. So I'm happy on it, just concerned with the bowel issues. Prior to this, unless I'd been glutened, I had no bowel issues.

What about the soy? Some people have trouble with that.

Tofu has never bothered me in the past. So that's not to say that couldn't be new, but I think given the extreme changes in diet with getting rid of all simple carbs and limiting complex -- within reason -- is the blame. I'm just not sure how to counteract it.

Hi ciavyn, I eat a lot like you do now (minus the soy and legumes) but even though I tend towards diarrhea normally, this way of eating does the opposite for me. I also wondered about the soy, but since you were good with it before I don't know how changing everything "around" it would make a difference. It may be something to think about if all else fails, just omit it for a trial.

Also, are the supplements all things that you've been taking all along? I have a very hard time with them and consequently don't take any anymore.

Finally, are you taking in a lot more fiber than before? That could also do it, but your system should adapt if that's the case.

You could try adding some sweet potatoes or yams into your diet. Lots of vit A and they have both insoluable and soluable fiber so they can help with both D and C. I also think it might be a good idea to eliminate soy for a bit and see if that helps.

It sounds like your gut is out of whack. Our family has had great results from the GAPS Diet. It's all about healing the gut. There is a long list of foods to avoid and SOY is definitely one of them. The idea behind this diet is to restore the balance of the flora in your gut, and to seal up a leaky gut. People with leaky guts (that have been damaged, especially by grains) often develop intolerances to foods that didn't used to be a problem because the proteins of those foods get through the gut's lining and cause reactions. By healing the gut, many foods can become safe to reintroduce.
