    Good point about mixing your diet. I should probably try more variety in my diet because i fear i mite become dlightly intolerant to others too. The funny thing about acv is that apples are a no-no on fructose malabsorption but i gathered the fermented state would be ok. I use and im not as nazi about some of the things i eat like garlic, sauerkraut and avocado all of which are not recommended on fructose mal but i hope im doing more good than harm. I can take a litle bit of bloating and flatulence here and there.
    If you can't find the milk look for raw cheese, which tends to be easier to find.

Goat milk is best raw, as it will have natural probiotics in it which are killed during pasteurization. I buy mine from a farmer who sells it as "pet food," as it's illegal to sell here for human consumption. If you have a farmers market near you look around to see if there's anyone selling milk. Also, if you have access to fresh raw herbs/veg from a source you would trust (organic) to eat with minimal washing they can be a good source of bacteria. Constipation is usually caused by dysbiosis, an imbalance of gut flora. The reason why most carb sources are bad with dysbiosis is that they feed the organisms that are overgrowing, so you need to replenish others so there is more diversity while starving the overpopulated bunch.
      Raw milk is always better, I'll see if I can find some at a market near me. I never knew that fresh raw herbs and veggies would be a good source of bacteria, thanks for the tip. I definitely have an imbalane of gut flora and am trying to bring it back to normal, hence me making this thread. I'm hoping that going lower carb and adding in probiotics from kefir, greek yogurt, kim chi, and probiotic pills will help restore my gut.

      Ah that's too bad about the raw milk, I've had it once before and the taste is night and day compared to regular milk. That is funny about apples and ACV, it never occured to me before. I agree about the doing more good than harm. I need another good source of fat (and calories) and avocados fit the bill, but I notice that they make me bloated and sometimes gassy; oh well.

      What are the main foods you eat and what does a typical day look like for you meal-wise? Ever since I lowered my carbs in an attempt to starve the bad bacteria I've been eating more goat and hard cheeses to make up the difference but I'd like to steer clear of them if possible because they bloat me. Just looking for some other things I can add into the rotation that will not bump up my carbs.
