Fibrous carbohydrates = bad?!
Since transitioning back to meat eating, I'm having a little bit of trouble with... umm... You know...! My bowel movements are not really happening. I was doing some research into GAPS (for an unrelated issue) and discovered that they don't advocate fibre as it:
"feeds microbes. The human digestive system is not designed to break down fiber. Instead, it ends up undigested in your bowel, where the majority of your gut flora resides. If your gut flora is healthy, ie dominated by beneficial, probiotic species, then these microbes will feed on the fiber and proliferate."[/I]
Meanwhile, over at the Danny Roddy thread:
