Does yogurt make poo strange? (TMI)

Ate yogurt for the first time in a year and my poo went extremely soft and changed color. I haven't been right for a week, but seems to be subsiding. No pain, just disgruntled. Checking to see if this is normal as I do not recall yogurt doing this to me before.

I've had lactose intolerance come and go. But even for the totally intolerant, it's an extremely short-term thing. There's absolutely no way that one dose of lactose can, by itself, dysregulate your bowels for multiple days.

I think adding a new food to your diet has sometimes strange reactions. I used to have Pizza (I know it's a bad word) with no problems but now that I am on a fairly low carb diet when I indulge on 'real' pizza from Italy (we got a great local restaurant) then I feel very vey bloated the day after.

To begin with, I'm pretty sure yogurt is not on the paleo diet plan. If you have been off of dairy (which sounds like you have been following a strict paleo diet) then you will more than likely have a lactose intolerant reaction when you try to introduce it back into your diet. Personally, I will allow myself a bit of cheese here and there and I seem to be able to digest it just fine. However, if I was to drink cows milk, eat ice cream or yogurt....well...lets just say its no fun if you catch my drift.

If you are wanting to add yogurt back into your diet, you may have to adjust to it slowly to keep from having such an acute reaction. Good luck!

Maybe your body is producing less lactase now that you're off dairy. So experiencing a little temporary lactose intolerance. Nutritionists have told me that can subside after your body adjusts to dairy again and starts producing sufficient lactase to digest it. But I expect others on here will disagree with that.
