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...

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. ;)
