  • Gastrointestinal question and Primal

    Call me weird, but I want to know if this is normal. I posted before about the number of BM's I was not having, now having gone primal. Many said it is because there is less waste as if I were eating grains and such. True? Does this go hand in hand with the amount of gas I have and or pass. I have noticed that I virtually pass no gas and if I do, I do not stink up the whole room. Mind you I AM NOT COMPLAINING ONE BIT. I just want to know if this is an affect of eating primal. I know I'm weird. But I am a scientific person and was just curious to know.

        No, you're not weird. You're normal. Just Primal normal.

          Yep. I recall read once that it was "normal" to pass gas 20 times per day. I probably did when I was eating lots of "healthy whole grains". Now its pretty rare.

            I thought they smelled like bacon.

              I actually have more BMs, but gluten intolerance (and a host of other food issues) caused constipation. My diet pre-primal wasn't completely SAD though, so the change wasn't drastic. I was already eating lots of veg and fruit which I had to stop and by eliminating all grains and most starches and adding good fats my guts settled into a happy routine. I think most people have a significant adjustment period when first going primal.

                I've noticed myself and my wife have had less passing of gas since we started this. Yesterday she was complaining about how beer causes that. I think she finally believes me!
