Constipation, Swelling And Liquid Retention
Hi everybody, I started to follow a PHD/paleo diet from july 2014 and ultimately Iâ€™ve tried to be low on carbs and donâ€™t eat fruits from january.
Practically from the day Iâ€™ve started to not eat anymore grains and legumes Iâ€™ve experienced periods of constipation and a bit of abdominal swelling, I donâ€™t go to the bathroom daily anymore. Moreover last week I had belly cramps and in just a couple of days I gained 4kgs of liquid retention.
Last Saturday evening I ate a lot of homemade sauerkrauts that caused me diarrhea at 3AM, but at least they helped a bit to relieve belly tension.
This last episode may be caused by an intestinal virus, even though Iâ€™m not sure, but however I donâ€™t understand what to change to cure my (paleo) constipation.
What am I doing wrong? What should I add?
