Hi all, I've been doing very well on the lfrv lifestyle for about 2 weeks now. I know -so little time. But I've been finding that eating the larger volume of food is slowing down transit time in my GI tract. I can tell it's very happy on this new diet, but it's still causing me some difficulty. I've never been eaten this much fresh fiber before. I'm recovering from celiac/ibs/Gi difficulties etc.
Does anyone have any particular suggestions? Should I water fast at all? I feel like my system needs a break. I'm not sure.
There are more than few people on here with celiac that have found relief doing 811. Here are three:
Eating slow, nothing cold, mono meals, maybe skip greens for a while if they are causing digestive problems, these are the suggestions I've read that seems to be working for people.
I have/had terrible digestion. Make sure to drink at least 1 liter of water FIRST THING in the morning. This made a HUGE difference in my digestion. I get better results in 1.5 liters.
Drink about 30minutes before eating..500mls to 1 liter.
Eat mono meals. Don't eat too fast. I also find eating fruit in its whole form is much better on my digestive system however its easier getting the calories in with blended fruit. Chew your food really well.
I prefer to avoid greens and only have them very seldom. This isn't ideal, but its what works for me now. As my digestive system gets better I am sure this will change.
Keep things simple and consistent.
