    I'm so sorry you're not feeling well. I know that we generally lean toward natural cures for minor illnesses and discomforts, but maybe taking a laxative would be a good idea for you - flush things out and start over kind of thing. maybe?

    You take a probiotic, right?

    Sometime the advice we get is sorely lacking in anything helpful!!! Listen to your body and see what helps or doesn't! I have seen my issues with constipation disappear since I started applying magnesium oil to my skin before showering every evening!! Incredible what a difference it has made - my whole life I have had constipation issues and only 'went' every few days. Now, at least a couple times a day and without any effort. What a pleasure!

    It's clearing up! Amazing what a few days of clean eating can do .
    I'm taking a magnesium and probiotic supplement too.

    Thanks!
    This morning when I got up and looked in the mirror I was finally quite pleased again with how I look. My belly was much less swollen. The cramps are gone too. As is the constipation. Looks.like I'm doing the right thing. Also my weight was down a little . I hope it'll continue moving in the right direction now!

    Busy weekend ahead. Tomorrow there's a BBQ at our Crossfit gym. And on Sunday DH and I have a date . Dinner in a fancy restaurant (shouldn't be hard to eat low Fodmap there ). And after that a concert: Leonard Cohen (yes, again! We saw him last year too, but I guess at hos age he won't be touring forever, so we take every opportunity we can). I'm so looking forward to it!

    Have a nice weekend everyone!

    Sounds like you've found the right path. I'm right there with you on the FODMAPS thing. I've been on the elimination part for 3 weeks now. My stomach is so much better! I've strayed a few times, and every single time I have had tummy issues the following day. So - I'm trying to stay really clean. I did have a bite of brown sugar yesterday - but table sugar is safe as far as FODMAPS goes. Not so good primally speaking

    From what I've read staying on the elimination part for 2-4 weeks is suggested. I think my gut is starting to heal. I'm not getting a belly ache every time I eat something now, and the only time I've had diarrhea in the entire 3 weeks is when I've eaten something off the unsafe list - so I count that as progress to healing my gut. I'm not eating nuts yet - just meat/fish/eggs - cooking in olive oil and very little spices. Old Bay is free of all the spices to avoid so I've been using it on practically everything.

    I use this chart but I've seen others that are more comprehensive - just not as pretty to hang on the fridge There is lots of good info out there - it hasn't moved into the CW world yet. I think the thought of fruits and veggies causing "damage" to the body is just too much to handle for the CW world.

    Hope things are working themselves out on the homefront. Kids are certainly a challenge...... even once they reach adulthood they can still be difficult!

    Things I choose to let go:

    All grains - including rice
    Refined sugars
    Legumes - including peanut butter
    Nuts and nut butters
    Alcohol and soda
    Chocolate

    I'm choosing to do this......... I don't HAVE to.

    I'm doing this because I'm worth it - because I'm worthy - because I love myself.

    Thanks Tomi. I have a paleo-fodmap list from somewhere and also found a fodmap app for my phone. This way when I'm grocery shopping or at a estaurant and I'm unsure, I can do a quick check.

    Today we had a quite heavy WOD at Crossfit, but I was able to do it and felt better than I have in weeks!!! I plan to stay strict low-fodmap for at least a month and then start re-introducing.

    Ecks, DH and I both adore Leonard Cohen (his voice and music). And he's such a nice person (on stage at least). His concerts are value for money too: he keeps coming back for encores. Last year in Gent the concert lasted almost 4 hours!
