    Irregularity

    Shop Now
    So Ive been posting about digestive issues a lot and I was having some success, but lately ive been really irregular. I know im getting good fiber from spinach, carrots, winter squash, sweet potatoes. I have eliminated fodmaps, eggs, nuts, seeds, and dairy for a while now. Ive introduced ginger for the last month or so, and im at a loss as to why im not regular. Been off gluten and beans for at least 6 months. Im interested in some testing. Does anyone have any suggestions on types of tests i should get? ie stool, hormones, etc. Please help.

    Magnesium, hydration, and food volume. Got those cornered?

    Are you only going once a week?
    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.

    Try some probiotics and add a few plums or prunes to your diet.

    Hydration is good. About a gallon per day. Got lots of fat. Eat about 3000cals/day. I just have no sensation of movements at all..

    Try cooked, cooled and refried white potatoes and basmati rice. A few green bananas on top of the rice and potatoes.

    Aloe Vera juice works well - the cranberry flavour is nicer

    Also now foods digestive enzymes works well.

    -Supplement magnesium daily. Start at 200 mg, add a dose (spread throughout the day) until you have a BM. This is a temporary measure.
    -Do you have a regular intake of probiotics? does that make a difference?
    -Any other digestive symptoms? Bloat, gurgling, pain, gas? Heartburn?
    -Any digestive issues pre-primal?

    No pain, no bloating. Maybe a tiny bit of gas. Nothing really outstanding. I eat a lot of ground beef 75%/25%. Also, I tend to eat 1lb of meat at a time by itself. Later I'll eat carrots, spinach, kale. Then eat another lb of meat a few hours later. I separate meals by meat and carbs. I haven't been mixing them together. Should I eat meat and veggies at the same time?
