What is wrong with my body!?

  • My first thought... If you're eating healthy, you're probably getting a lot more fiber than you would otherwise.  It may be a few uncomfortable days, but your body will learn to adjust to the increase in fiber, make sure you're drinking enough water. But if things DON'T start getting better, probably see a doctor?

  • This is happening to me too!  I'm on a no dairy, egg, nut, soy diet for LO's reflux so I'm eating tons of fruit and veggies and I have diarrhea all the time and cramps!  I've lost 16 lbs since I've been on this diet and I suspect its because I poo everything out before I can digest it! 
  • Yes, probably the fiber.  Try easing in a bit more and then don't switch back to no fiber for long.  
  • Have you increased your dairy?
