    Stool problems since I started paleo?

    Shop Now
    I'm a 14 year old guy,
    I went paleo 3-4 weeks ago. I stopped eating grains, dairy, added sugar and almost no potatoes. I started eating a little more nuts, eggs and chicken. A week after I started, I sometimes get greenish stool which is softer than normal and sometimes it's a HUGE amount, about 3 times the normal amount. Sorry if reading this disgusts you. But when this happens I also feel terrible in my stomach, it doesn' hurt but it just feels very bad. Any ideas why this is?

    Eating big salads?
    Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.

    Hi, and welcome!

    Hmmm. Sounds like you're pooping some of your food out. Are you eating a lot of green veggies? You didn't say. I'd look into a digestive enzyme containing ox bile and start taking one with each meal (before you start eating). It's cheap, around $10 a bottle.

    Careful with nuts. Don't eat them too much. They are not a meal replacement.

    Also, start consuming coconut oil. It'll help keep you regular Some people get constipated eating on the PB.

    Do not allow yourself to become wrapped up in a food 'lifestyle'. That is ego, and you are not that.
