(This is graphic, and very embarrassing for me to admit)
The big D word. Yep, that's right, diarrhea. Before going raw my problem was constipation and was still suffering from it until recently. I've been raw for 5 months and the constipation cleared up quite a bit right away, but still wasn't perfect. And then I bought a six pack of Zevia ( a soda sweetened with stevia and erythritol) I was stupid, I didn't think anything of the erythritol. That sweetener gave me D even though it says that the sweetener doesn't, unlike the other sugar alcohols. Since then it hasn't been good, gradually getting worse. Now everyday what comes out is like water. I don't go a whole lot everyday, only about 3 times altogether. I feel pretty good except for the putrid gas that I can't keep in. I have had a problem with gas and bloating since I was 10 and this is one of the main reasons I went on the raw diet. I still have a lot of bloating, but can't figure out what the culprit is. Could be stress, fruit, fat, food combining, I don't know. Anyway, I don't want to go to the doc because I don't have the money and I know she will flip when she finds out the diet I'm on. I do have acacia fiber powder that I used to take for my constipation, but it works well for diarrhea and that made me constipated and gassy. What does everyone think? I know this is graphic, but I need help. Thanks
Oh and I don't have the money for colonics, nor do I want to. I hope it never comes to that!
