I try to get plenty of healthy fats in my diet via nuts, nut butters, etc... Does anyone else find that too much fat is bothersome? If so, what are some of your symptoms?

Yes, If I have too much fatty foods...I have looser stools. I wouldn't say the big D like it was before I was dx'd but less formed...sorry for the grafic detail! And I know this is not from eating gluten or getting CC'd.

I have a really hard time digesting fatty foods. They are just too "heavy" for my stomach to break down.

Yes, fat is a problem for me too. I have to ration nuts, eggs, and meat. It makes my duodenum, gallbladder and pancreas work harder. If I have recently been glutened, I have to really try to avoid fat for about 2 weeks.

If you need protein, remember that low-fat egg whites have more protein than the yolk.

How many grams of fat does everyone consume? I have been finding that my tummy seems to get a little ticked off with more than 1 tablespoon full of peanut butter or other nut butter. It's like I can have the one server of nuts or nut butter, but by the second round, things start to get off a little. I know I haven't been glutened of CC'd either. What do most people tend to consume if items like fats need to be low(er), meats, fruits, and veggies can be of issue. What all do we eat so we are getting enough calories and enough food to support our lives?

in a case like that, I'd ask if it was fat, or nuts.

in either case, I'd vary your sources of fat - for me, the biggest sources are almonds, avocados, olive oil, canola oil, coconut, flax seeds, eggs, and hemp seeds.

All those things you mentioned cause me issues as well. Fish oil is a huge offender. Therefore I don't think it's just nuts.

I follow a rather low fat diet, both because I think it is healthier & the fact that more than a minimal amount of fat makes me sick. Maybe the two are connected :rolleyes:

If I have too much fat, food just sits on my stomach & doesn't digest. And my gut hurts something fierce and gets worse as the hours go by. No medicine helps. The only thing I can do is not eat anything until my stomach finally feels better. I've gone to more than one doctor over the years and their tests couldn't find anything.

So it is a matter of "doctor, it hurts when I do this " .... "well then, don't do it."

The last time this happened was from having more than a minimal amount of peanut butter.

I have no problems getting enough to eat, at least when I'm home. And I follow a vegan diet to boot. I guess I don't understand the question. I eat when I'm hungry and until I'm full; getting enough calories isn't a problem (and I exercise quite a bit). At least when I avoid things I shouldn't eat, I'm pretty healthy.

I've had problems digesting any more than a little fat since I had my gallbladder out many years ago. Anything oily takes forever to digest and doesn't make me feel well. I cut out fried and fatty foods a long time before I started having other intestinal problems, and I wonder if they would have come up sooner if I hadn't.
