Diet Change Question

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I've recently started the gluten free diet and actually noticed that I'm now having softer bowel movements. That wasn't one of my previous symtoms, aside from amennhorrea (no periods) I was symptomless. So my question is, did anyone else notice softer bm after starting diet? Do you think this is possible to the sudden diet change? I'm taking proper supplements so I don't think that it's lack of fiber, etc in that regard. I'm a little confused. I'm being extremely careful reading labels, and eating veggies and chicken, etc.

My BMs were a lot softer after I went gluten-free...different in color too. They've changed a bit a few times, but once you're on the diet for a good amount of time you'll probably figure out what's more (and new) "normal" for you.
