Nuts, Nuts, Nuts!

Recommended Posts

I've been improving so very much this past month that I have finally found another problem. I have kept my food journal pretty regularly during healing, but could never figure out what was causing my occasional bloat -- each time I was certain I hadn't been glutened and nothing stood out as the cause.

So the other day I was busy (God it is great to be busy again) and didn't eat regular meals so I munched a few more cashews and some nut cluster snack thingys than on a normal day and added nutella to my ice cream that night. The next day I had found what was causing the problem over the past months. I am not allergic to nuts, but I definitely am not able to digest them while still healing.

Glad I found it without removing more items from my diet!

Why do you think you can't digest them?

If there are pieces of nuts in your stool, it's not a digestion problem but a chewing problem. Same way with whole kernel corn. If there are whole kernels in stool it just mean they were not chewed properly. Many people if they see pieces of food they aren't digesting them. Our bodies do not break down such larges pieces.

I have been gluten free for nearly 2 weeks and for the first week I was eating lots of cashew nuts because I felt I needed the energy as I have lost so much weight recently, anyway my point is that too many cashews can give you very soft oily orange stools and by oily I mean free oil. I was horrified and very worried until I googled it and found out that this can happen when you over indulge in nuts!
