So I've been eating a mostly raw diet for about a year now. I've never had any issues with it really until recently and I can't figure out what's going on. No matter WHAT I eat, if it's raw, I can't seem to truly digest it. Here's where it gets a little gross, but everything ends up coming out looking much like it did going into my body, and the process of elimination tends to be a pretty uncomfortable experience altogether...
I get really really cramped up in my tummy after eating, and when I finally go to the bathroom it hurts a lot in my belly, and is always almost entirely water (really bad diarrhea). I can't figure out what's going on because I've tried taking out some foods and trying to eat different ones and I've played around with that a bit. Nothing significant has changed in my diet, and I make sure that I don't overdo eating one thing too much, as well. I make sure I'm eating lots of fruits, greens, with some fats and protein... I mean... it's really basic and it's what has always worked for me until maybe a month ago.
The only thing that is different now is, well a few things...some related to diet, and others not so much.
First of all, I get all organic produce from the farm I work at. Which shouldn't make a difference at all, except maybe a positive one... but it's just about the only thing about my diet that has changed.
I did get my tubes tied a couple months ago...and I'd say it might have something to do with that, BUT, the issues seem to be okay if I eat cooked food unfortunately. I ate some falafel the other day and I was fine from that--had no tummy issues, and had good digestion...but I can't seem to eat ANYTHING raw without it going right through me and being a painful experience. WTF???
Does anyone have any idea what could be going on and what I could do to get it under control? I really don't want to incorporate more cooked foods into my diet if I have any other option because I don't see that being any healthier, either, even if it solves the tummy issues.
Like I said... it's fine when I eat cooked foods, so I don't think it's something that's wrong with my body or anything...but maybe I am wrong.
