No its not TMI at all. It nice to have people share there more intimate moments and problems. It is helps everyone understand what others are going through and maybe having someone else they can relate to. Thanks for your message

Regular BM's was one of the main reasons I tried this diet. The first 8 days were awful, I almost gave up. I was tired, had dark bags under my eyes and just felt bad. I eventually discovered that I had an intolerance to nuts! I had switched to coconut, almond everything. Once I gave up nuts (switched to sunflower butter/milk) I felt much better. I made it thru the 21 days then put gluten back in. Discovered that gluten "binds" me up, so goodbye gluten.

I have not had the weight loss, or big energy boost but that wasn't my goal. I stuck to the program as best I could. I will be challenging eggs next followed by dairy.

Hope this all isn't TMI....

Yes more water is a good idea as things like flax and chai seeds absorb a lot of water. Also make sure you are not taking to much fiber in one sitting. It is good to slowly increase the amount to allow your body to adjust. I know for myself since I am eating less in general, less junk, more good stuff that my BM should not be quite as big. Usually I go once a day usually in the morning and can tell I excreted everything I put in. Since breakfast is replaced with a shake there should be less food in your system. I also sometimes will drink my tea to help out on those days where its harder than others. I think stress or not being in a comfortable environment where you feel free to go can also play a role. At least for me the days I am at home my body is more regular than days when I have to go to work.

Me too. Not really bad,-I'm not truly uncomfortable, but I'm not going as well as I would expect to. I think the key is MORE water and more exercise.
I'd like to hear other ideas also.

I know...a TMI subject...but I need to ask.

Since I've been on the JJVD, I've been less than "regular". I thought I was eating plenty of fiber. Any suggestions?
