I had digestive problems my whole life.
But after losing 50LBS and eating mostly healthy foods and whole grains I had normal stools.
I switched to primal to be more healthy and mostly to fix emotional issues like anxiety and depression as well as my binge eating and low blood sugar spikes from carbs and sugars needing to eat every 2 hours.
Now I can IF & eat every 4 - 6 hours :)!
High carb sets me off.
I also like the idea of eating naturally.
So now im low carb high fat/protein, and while I'm full and not binging I now have terrible watery stools every night.
I thought originally it was the uncooked vegetables, so I eliminated them.
And it persists.
Im starting to think its the high fat.
I ate vegetables & lean meats & barely any cooking oils other than Canola or fats before going Primal.
Now I eat fatty cuts of meats, Olive Oil/Butter for Cooking and on my Veggies.
Where do I go from there? Or do you even think thats the root cause?
Id rather have a "fat burning body" than a sugar burning one, but Im thinking my body disagrees.
Im afraid to go back to higher carbs because of binging. Or that I wont be as full anymore.
My food diary on MFP is public:
I have about a months worth of Primal logged.

Probably the fat.
Coconut oil is very well known for a laxative effect if consumed in 'large' amounts, which can be as little as a TBSP.
