Question About Paleo Diet....

8 posts in this topic

I've been trying to be healthier and lose a few pounds and thought I would try to paleo diet since it seems to go well with my food allergies anyway. My problem is since I've been on it (6 days) I have had the diarrhea. Is this normal?

Hmm, that is a new one to me since it stopped my diarrhea. Im sorry your dealing with it :(

Are you maybe having a candida die off? I know its a common symptom of that to have diarrhea. I wish I could help more but didnt find much when I did a search on the net for you. Hopefully someone will be able to answer better.

I read in Protein Power that diarrhea is common when people go on a low carb diet.

You must be not eating very many carbs even though the Paleo Diet isn't as low carb as Atkins.

I also get it when I first start a low carb diet. It should clear up in a week or two. It's your body adjusting to the new way of eating.

I did not get that; however, I have been plagued with C my whole life, which cleared up with Paleo -- so maybe I would've gotten it had my problem been D. I will say this:

the other day I walked the 2-1/2 miles to school and when i got there (barely in time) had to sit on the pot for 20 minutes with scary D. (Never mind the misery of public pooping.) I thought about it. I was definitely not glutened. I think it was walnuts. I had had a huge blob of walnuts and prunes the day before (okay, prunes are a bit notorious too)...

nuts can be hard to digest. So if you've been eating lots of those....?

Hope you feel better. If not, maybe you can ease into Paleo...

Are you eating something you don't normally eat?

I haven't been eating too differently. I normally eat a little bit of rice every day and that's it for grains. Today I had a cup of rice and my D is gone. I don't know if the diet is right for me. :huh:

I don't have a ton of experience with the condition. My experience is in changing locals and diets often. If you switched to the Paleo diet and started to have D right away, there's a high probability that it's due to an increased consumption of fruit/nuts/veg. Switching from a high-carb diet to a mostly-protein diet will due that to a lot of people. If you keep fruits and nuts to a low and up the rice for a few days, I bet that it goes away. Just an idea. ;)
