Mud Flinger: Some months ago I did try them. I was trying to see a nutritionist who specialized with IBS and the like. She told me to try an elimination diet of sorts (only certain non-paleo foods were still allowed). She also told me to take digestive enzymes and Trifala (though at the start there was some mix up and she confused the hell out of me, which made me buy probiotics instead.) I didn't see/feel any improvement, but that was when I stopped taking that prescription Zantac. I hope to get a check up soon. Even though I'm young, I think it's time I start paying attention to my health closely. I need to know my BP, Cholesterol and all that other stuff and see if I'm malnourished. (Probably am.) I'm a tad afraid of telling the doctor what I've been doing on my own because they'll probably freak and tell me to quit.
I have been thinking there may be issues with gut flora (though I am IBS-C not D.) It doesn't seem normal not to go when I've eaten enough. I used to eat yogurt. Mainly Stoneyfield (before that Yoplait.) Is there a certain brand I need to consider? I confess I'm not fond of plain yogurt. *gag* I have been looking for some pickles. It's pretty annoying to not find pickles that aren't laced with crap. Next time i'm at a health food store I'll try looking for Bubbies.
socoolnanny: Thanks for your encouragement. It wasn't right to freak out and lose it like that. Maybe I was having some stress and couldn't take it. Whether I stay paleo or not, I still believe in eating real food. But I hate that "forbidden" feeling when you're away from home and around others who are enjoying themselves and you're sitting around not participating (even if it's unhealthy). Amazing how some people keep forgetting you're not eating certain foods.
Are there certain brands of yogurt that are more potent?
