Hi! I’m new here. I’ve been in the category of IBS-C for decades, since my early twenties. About a year and a half ago I switched my diet to a low starch, higher fat and protein diet from a vegetarian way of life. It actually was a more “plant-based diet in that i found myself snacking on I was eating lots of fruits, veggies, and nuts instead of processed things like crackers, breads, and other starchy things. All was good, and I finally after over a year, I felt constipation was under control. However, about 6 weeks ago, my bowel movements became looser and looser, and much more frequent. I now sometimes have to wake up in the middle of the night to go. Has this ever happened to anybody else? Because I was eating a lot of raw veggies, could I have picked up some bacteria that’s screwed up my intestines?
