About once every two weeks I will get diahrrea about half an hour after a meal. I'm lactose intolerant but I take probiotics which basically take away all the symptoms, plus I do not eat much lactose-heavy dairy, butter and some good cheese is it.
This used to happen much more often before I discovered paleo and probiotics. I used to think that it was all caused by lactose but I have had a couple experiences over the past couple months that make me think this is wrong. One example is a few months ago I partied with some friends and ended up eating six slices of shitty pizza and most of a pint of ice cream, along with a bunch of beer (don't worry, this is a very rare thing for me) and I felt perfectly fine. Another incident (which prompted this question) was last week where I ate leftover steak and a sweet potato for dinner which upset my stomach. I ate the exact same thing the night before and was fine.
I've read a little bit about FODMAPs and that people who have that problem can have problems with leftovers. But I always eat leftovers, I usually cook for four or fives days at a time and have no problems.
I know I need to keep a detailed food log in order to see patterns, and I'm going to start that soon. But does anyone have any ideas as to what causes this? Does anything like this happen to anyone else here?
The other thing that is weird about my digestion is that I tend to go a lot. Minimum twice per day, usually more. I'm never constipated (I'm done in about 20 seconds) and from the looks of things (when I don't have this problem) everything is being digested very well.
Sorry for grossness/TMI :)
