Intermittent Fasting Digestion

Answered on August 19, 2014

Hey guys I've been paleo since about December and very strict since starting a whole30 on feb22 (one slip up with accidental peanut oil consumption, chose not to restart since it truly was accidental) so I haven't had any non whole30 foods in 27 days. I feel great and considering I am finally on a different relationship with food, a better one, I delved more into IF recently. Three days ago I did a 16/8 lean gains fast to start. Then I did an 18/6 then I tried to just finish a 24 hour fast today but lasted 21. I was getting really hungry and had nothing else to do so I ate at 1100. I feel great and am already feeling better physically. I was going to do another one today and just stopped eating at 330 so my window for today was 4 hours fed and I was going to not eat again until around noon or so tomorrow. Well after my massive 1600 calorie second meal, I'll spare details by saying I think my body just cleaned out my Colon. I am not regular in terms of bowels but that was the third time today. I know IF is supposed to help detox but dayum! Is this normal on IF to be cleaned out like that? I had some coffee this morning that made me go a usual amount FYI and sorry for the TMI :/ just trying to get this sorted out. Thanks PaleoHacks Community for any help offered!

The hours don't matter for me. I'm just wondering why I just rushed to the bathroom and had an explosive colon cleanse

Nope, not normal in my experience. Try easing into a smaller eating window over weeks, not days.

Not being able to process so much food, thus getting diarrhea, can be a sign of pancreatic insufficiency.

It was just something you ate, not meal timing.

After a couple weeks you won't even pay attention to the numbers of hours. Many days I'm very comfortable with one meal & maybe a snack. The real key is eating for maximum nutrition.
