What Do You Eat For A Light Breakfast That Is Safe And Doesn't Give You Runs Of Any Kind?

Recommended Posts

Most things give me worm like poops in the morning. (Sorry) But that is why I take Imodium, because the skinny poop has trouble stopping. It lasts for several hours many times and I will have many small bowel movements. When I get sick of it, I take Imodium because I try to substitute teach. Any thoughts are appreciated as to what to eat that is firming and why this may be happening. :( Thanks for your thoughts.

I bet what you are eating for breakfast isn't really the reason for the pooping. It just stimulates your system. Eating anything & being upright and moving starts your GI system moving. It takes hours for food to get from your mouth to the other end ( or a couple of days even). This is probably how your system works right now. You might try adding fiber to your diet all day. Or figure out if there is another food that bothers you?

My kids and I eat Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free oat meal with some Silk coconut milk, hot water, and sliced up banana. Seems to stoke the fires for hours.

Whenever my colitis is active, eating is usually what sets off a case of the poops.  As stupid as it seems, eating food causes peristalsis, and if there's something wrong with your gut that can mean a lot of extra movement. 

 

My nutritionist admonished me for not eating in the morning, but sometimes that can be unavoidable if it means a week-long trip to the can and missing school/work.  But that's one way to go about it.  

 

These days I've taken to eating two hard-boiled eggs in the morning.  Sometimes I'll top that off with a grain (granola bar, toast, oatmeal) too.  This may depend on how well you tolerate eggs, but I find that as shapes of eggs go, hard-boiled never upsets my stomach (runnier eggs often do).  I try to avoid anything too carb-o-licious, as I find my blood sugar crashes early, and I also avoid fruit.  I don't even know why, but bananas almost always give me diarrhea.  YMMV, as always.

it seems i am a probiotic/digestive enzyme pusher this week!  lolz 

 

i used to have those 'problem mornings' until i started taking these - probiotic 2x per day, digestive enzyme with every meal.  otherwise, if i had to do anything in the morning, i would just wait to eat (aka starve to death)  but, now, once i get that Morning Constitutional out of the way, i can usually count on having no trouble until i eat again.  honestly, i quit working because it was so bad.  now, i think i could manage a job.  good luck!  :)

My usual breakfast lately is bacon and fried veggies and mushrooms.  Pretty carb low but high in fats if that is an issue for you.

I was like that every morning no matter what I ate or how good I was at avoiding gluten and other allergens.  I started taking calcium suppliments for unrelated issues and the calcium also helped solidify things quite a bit too - bonus!  Apparently constipation is a common side effect of taking calcium suppliments, but when things are moving too quickly it seems to work to help slow things down just enough too.

Hi I'm new to this forum, Hawkeye58 speaking:

I so understand what you are going through. Most morning I am unable to eat or drink anything until about 10-11am, I don't know why nor do the doctors. But at about that time I may be able to have potatoes or toast. I usually can only have one maybe two kind of foods at one time. Big Malabsorbtion problem. On my last doctor visit he said; I'm sure you are still getting gluten from some where. We don't know from where since I can hardly eat at all, but we're looking.

I eat meat and cheese roll ups. I do have the runs on a regular basis... But I have other issues besides being Celiac.

I love that for breakfast, too! I lay out my little slices of smoked turkey or ham and sprinkle shredded cheese on them and microwave briefly. I fold them in half - I guess mine aren't really rolled up..... Lol
