OK, I won't gross you out with the gory details, but let's just say the lack of fiber in the Whole30 diet has played havoc with my digestive system, attaining crisis level two different times during the past week.
And of course, it occurs at the MOST inopportune moments! Yesterday I was all dressed & ready to leave for a doctor's appointment when I simply doubled over with cramps that continued for an hour. NO WAY could I stray too far from the bathroom! The other time it happened I was in a store!
Yesterday after it was over I checked the message boards on the Whole30 website and this is not an uncommon problem. Dontcha think they should have put something about this in their book? Or on the website?
They suggest taking "digestive enzymes" and something called "Natural Calm" that helps you sleep as well as keeps you regular. I ordered both from Amazon and hope this solves the problem. I'm skeptical that it can be a healthy way to eat if you need a bunch of supplements to counter the side effects.
At any rate, my stomach was tender the rest of the day so I consoled myself with a couple of glasses of wine and ice cream after dinner. *FAIL!*
By the "rules" I'm supposed to start over with Day 1 but I don't care! I'm carrying on.
Have a wonderful Saturday, everyone!
