Reboot after some diarrhea....
I am restarting atkins after two days off. I developed pretty bad diarrhea.... I picked up the NEW atkins book as I was following old guidelines. I think my body didn't like all the nuts... I eat them normally but they didn't agree with me this time. Or it could be that I'm a vegetarian and I'm allowing myself to eat meat again after a long time as I cannot abide all that soy doing the vegan atkins. Also a new trainer at the gym wants me to eat some meat as I am training in weightlifting.
Anyway. Any other ideas on this are welcome. I did really well eating my veggies and sticking to less than 20 CHO. I lost 5lbs in 2 weeks. Then started noticing loose stools around the time I flipped into ketosis. (+ urine sticks) I drink my 2 liters of water a day....Is this normal? Is my body just adjusting to ketosis? Could it be my body reacting to all the fat?
I have successfully lost the same 10lbs, ten times over the last 3 years.
Low carb here I go!
