Hi, I posted recently that I was doing the Leaky Gut diet and was feeling OK. However, gradually (as always happens when I do anything low carb) I got totally bunged up. I was taking all kinds of things to help as I was due to go on holiday but nothing was really working so my case was full of digestive enzymes, charcoal, magnesium etc etc! However, once there and finding that trying to keep the diet up wasn't going to work, I took my foot off the gas a bit and though I didn't go mad I felt loads better and my bowels sprang back to life again. It's like a Catch 22. Low carb/gut health or eating carbs and having fully functioning bowels!
I have had gut issues for years but have come to the conclusion that I am much better with carbs in my life...unfortunately as I am trying to keep off grains that means going back to nightshades. I don't seem to suffer any ill effects when I eat them. Are they really that bad?
