I've been following a strict paleo diet for the last three weeks - Whole30-style, zero exceptions (so zero grains, legumes, or dairy), with very minimal fruit/sweet potato intake. Lots of things are better, but there is one strange side effect... (more)
I remember reading somewhere that drinking before/after (10 minutes or so) and during the meal dilutes gastric juice PH level in the stomach and therefore contributes to lesser digestion quality. Does anyone have any more details (time, amount,... (more)
Occasionally, I would get a queasy stomach and some mild diarrhea, take some probiotics and I would be fine within an hour or two. Had a situation where both continued to get worse to the point, I started feeling weak (which happens with a weak... (more)
I know there are lots of poop questions on here but none of them really help me out. I've brought this up before when I first started Paleo and had people telling me to up my carbs, up my fats, lower my fats, lower my protein, eat stems, etc.,... (more)
My latest post on my blog was about this. I struggled with loose stool a lot on strict paleo and it subsided when I would eat an apple sauce/banana/pumpkin/broth diet. Finally I got it to go away altogether by just well...not eating paleo. I still... (more)
I am interested in achieving maximal GI tract health, and I am concerned that I have been continually re-injuring the damage done by 20 years of SAD. I am wondering what the optimal strategy is for restoring gut health as fully as... (more)
The first thing I would do is try to stop the diarrhea completely. When I was occasionally eating gluten I was having problems with diarrhea, but what works for me in a diet of just bananas, applesauce, and mashed pumpkin until you get at least... (more)
Alright, I seem to have had a particularly bad idea this morning. I took a TBSP of coconut oil soon after I woke this morning, as I was really hungry and wanted to have my actual breakfast before I get on the road for a long drive today. Drank... (more)
See a doctor as soon as possible.
ok so this is a gross question i have never been able to voluntarily burp and i very rarely do on accident (and it is always tiny). after i eat or drink, i usually have to gag myself a while later to let gas escape from my stomach. i am always... (more)
I'm guessing this is some kind of mechanism to stabilize weight? Should I still eat then even if I'm not hungry? Also, my stomach seems to be permanently distended. What's happening?
From the literature it seems that almost all cases of GERD/acid reflux occur due to too little acid not too much. I think this is because the stomach needs to contain a certain amount of hydrochloric acid before it shuts the LES. Correct me if I'm... (more)
This question is not asked by me personally. I have been emailing someone back and forth trying to figure out how to fix his problem. His situation is very unique. I hope someone can offer him some advice. If you want or need to know more then let... (more)
Hi guys, I have had this problem for a year and a half now. I get a distended abdomen every time I eat or drink anything. That contents of the food/drink don't matter it is purely volume. I can say this as I have tried various elimination diets,... (more)
What about low stomach acid? Do a search on the web about it. There's a homemade test with asking soda you can try that may give you the answer or better yet talk to your doctor about it and possible he could test you.
concerning Ayers comment a while back, and I know someone asked this question before with no real answer, regarding betaine-hcl as a useful method to increase stomach acid. his comment was At the link that you cite, they were advocating adding a... (more)
I've been Paleo for two months now (No grains, sugar, dairy, legumes). And since day one I've eaten at least one egg a day. I buy cage/hormone free brown eggs from either Trader Joes or Whole Foods. About a week ago, I noticed a dulling painful... (more)
Try eating just the yolk... you may have a issue with the whites alone (ovo leptins). See if you still have an issue. If that is the case, you may just have to eat something other than eggs, or just egg yolk.
Hi, I would like to eventually make this a thread about repairing gut health properly via this method: http://paleodietlifestyle.com/you-and-your-gut-flora/ I believe that sebastian (the man who wrote the article) seems to be one of the only... (more)
For about two/three weeks now I've been feeling a strange emptiness sensation around my stomach area 10 minutes after eating. I was wondering if anyone ever experienced this as well? I'm having trouble figuring out where it could come from... (more)
Unlike some folks here, I didn't start paleo because of digestive problems. However, since beginning about a month ago, I am having discomfort in my belly after eating. I was vegan for 5 years prior, and vegetarian for 8 total, so the biggest... (more)
Hi everyone, I'm wondering if anyone here dealt with gastritis and how they were able to heal their stomach? My current protocol is: aloe vera, DGL, L-glutamine & arabinogalactan powder mixture (twice daily on empty stomach) probiotics... (more)
I started the Paleo diet 15 days ago. (Eating fish but no meat). My overall energy and body feels very good on this diet. I don't find myself having any sort of side effects except from the diet with the exception of severe stomach aches. ... (more)
My daughter has had problems with too much acid production in her stomach since she was very little. When she was 4 and 5 she would complain about tummy aches. I thought that she was using it as an excuse to not eat food that she didn't like. ... (more)
I started paleo three month ago and until now i haven't had any problems. Before around a week Ii started having stomach ache an hour after eating breakfast (eggs and meat). Ii decided to stop eating breakfast and there was no pain but the pain... (more)
Hi all, after reading Chris Kessner's post on Kefir, I thought I would try the Organic Lactose Free kind I found at Whole Foods. I was wondering what kind of experiences you have had with it. It's only been two days but my stomach has been... (more)
After 7 weeks of strict paleo (apart from 1 packet of quavers) I had a meal with friends last night and I ate non-paleo. 4 courses and we didn't finish eating till gone 10pm. All night I have kept waking up, feeling wobbly/shaky, very... (more)
