Hi, I have been on the atkins diet , low carbs and more protein and fat foods. it has been day 2. I have been having mild diarrhea day 1, and day 2 I have mild diarrhea with blood. I do not have stomach cramps , do not feel light headed or have any other symtoms. Instead i feel less bloated and energenic, but what can cause the bloody diarrhea?
I m on the the starvation diet. I have not eaten for little over 2 weeks. My mother is trying to help me get away from the diet however I m terrified that I the 20 lbs will go back on right way. My mother is a nurse and wanting me to start off slow on the Atkins diet. 3 pieces of bacon in the morning and salad and a pork chop for dinner. Am I to expect terrible weight gain from this, coming off the starvation diet?
Recently, (3 weeks or so ago) I started the atkins diet. Although I have always been a water drinker I notice that after a few glasses of water in the morning my stomach hurts badly. I don t pee much either. Any ideas? I also have MS but that doesn t seem to be a factor.
Hi, I m 28, female in Australia... I used to weigh 149kg s, I now weigh 89kg after having a gastric sleeve in dec 2011. My question is... What could be causing a irregular heart beat feeling and a flutter in my chest after I have eaten? I hadn t done any heavy exercise before eating so it s all at a slow regular pace. I used to get it before my weight loss surgery, but I m still having them. When it happens I check my pulse also it has a normal heart beat but then it feels like there is a slight pause and a hard thump right after. It happens quite a few times in the space of approximately 30seconds, then when I count my heart beat I count 50 beats in 30 seconds then after a minute I m fine again. This is really scary for me as i have heart problems in my family from my grandma (mothers side). What could be causing this?
Good evening. I have been on a low carb, high protein diet over the past 3 weeks and am enjoying this change of lifestyle. i only eat clean foods, plenty of fruit and veges, lean chicken and fish. Typical of everything the professionals tell you. I have been losing weight also which of course is a bonus. I started taking metamusil over the past 3 days in my morning juice plus drink 1 ltr of fresh water plus a couple of coffees daily. My problem now is, i have not used my bowels for the past 3 days and my flatulance has increased and really smells offensive. What do you suggest? Please help.
The last 3 days I ve passed stools that appear to have white clumps of a stringy like substance intertwined in it. I have changed my diet and eat more protein than usual. I also started working out. The diet change was about a month ago as well as the working out. Any idea what it could be? Is it just something associated with the high protein diet and a reduction in carb intake?
