GI problems...sleuthing in progress

Warning: Potentially GROSS & WHINEY Blog


After making my lovely meal for one on Friday, for the next couple of days I felt Super Sick.
Like my stomach was a plastic water bottle that was being twisted &
contorted.
P-A-I-N

& discomfort!

I ran from feeling constipated & then running back to the bathroom~ Again!
(sorry, gross I said!)

& the only thing I can trace it back to is MY BELOVED CHOPPED SALAD
that is like a staple in my Summer months.
Why, all of a sudden it makes me sick~ I do not know.
???

But all I know, is I didn't eat it yesterday, & I feel fine today.

There is where the Sleuth-work comes in.
It's a mystery........

Friday, I made the salad with black beans, but sometimes I use chickpeas.
Was that the trick?

I put parsley in this one, does parsley not agree with me?

I put cous cous in this one, is is the cous?

My poor husband says I looked at him with mean looks, all the time.
What is it about stomach problems that completely affect every area of your life?

I know I have to walk a delicate walk egarding my stomach, but I thought a bunch of fiber is good.
I guess it was too much.

SIGH.

Ok, whine over.

On a Plus~ I did my JM Extreme Shred today, since I felt good enough to jump around again.
I feel pretty awesome.

I hope you do, too!

    I would do an elimination diet. Try making the salad leaving out things that were different. My guess would be the couscous as it sounds like IBS.

    I thought I had trichinosis, but they say there is some nasty stomach virus bug going around...so can commiserate...it didn't help that I had just written a paper on food germs...
Hope you feel better soon!!!

    Fiber is kind of a weird thing. If your body is used to a lot of it it is fine, but if it doesn't regularly get large amount and large dose can cause a lot of pain. Drink water:) Hope you feel better soon.

    You aren't being gross or whiney. It may be the different beans. When I make any beans from scratch my son complains that he gets distressed. Hope you get over it soon.
