Hey guys, I've been on a veggie/vegan journey for about 13 months now. But, in the last 3 - 4 weeks I have noticed some irregularities in my bowel movements. I have JUST started training 5 - 6 nights a week, at least one hour, mainly cardio muscle confusion stuff to finally shift the weight and slim down. But... I have noticed this, and sorry for wording
Incredibly (smelly, hot, gassy - sorry
Once a day rather than twice
VERY squidgy and sticky, again, quite the smell
Quite large at times
Liver area a tad sore or irritated - as a note, I have had a diagnosis of creating too much bile before in that liver area, but that was due to fatty and meaty foods, strangely triggered after a trip to Las Vegas with a lot of red meat. But I calmed that down about 3 years ago by upping my water intake and taking a green grass/clay alkaline supplement. Something I don't take anymore as I am up in the air as to whether it is a good thing or not.
Noticed SOME acid reflux at times during workouts.
This could also be unrelated, but I seem to getting bad breath and a rather gooey ear. I assumed this was candida die off, it could well be?
Am I eating too much fruit? Is that possible? I have a lot of smoothies, mainly water/soy/almond milk with banana, berries, with nuts and seeds blended. I was juicing a lot, but have calmed that down to more or less nothing and trying to bulk up the liquids with fibre from the fruit in a blender instead. I have also noticed a lack of appetite for just plain drinking water.
Is it just my body reacting to the change of working out?
Just after some thoughts from anyone who may know or experienced something like this. The only thing I can think of right now is too much fruit with a mix of candida die off.
I'd like to avoid seeing a GP about it again as he may just want to prescribe me imoprozol (?!?!) again, which was a horrible experience, or give me anti biotics.
