Too much fiber!


Every time I try to go more than 60 per cent raw I get "intestinal problems", to put it lightly. The first time I went 80 per cent, I had to excuse myself from class to go to the bathroom all the time. I was going to the bathroom six times a day.

Then I ate some sprouted oats and barley, which I will never do again, and I gave myself a spastic colon. A doctor told me to stop eating raw and prescribed me some meds. I did not take them and went down to forty per cent raw. I don't think my colon is spastic anymore...

I'm back up to sixty. However, please suggest to me some constipating foods! I know bananas, but everything else is too much for me to handle. I cannot go to the bathroom more than four times a day, it is too much when I am at school.

Thank you.

    Perhaps your body starts to detox, and might stabilize if you stick with it? What did your diet consist of?

    I remember pooping several times a day when I first went raw, and (sorry) they were massive dumps. Within a week, though, I felt lighter and my bowel movements definitely stabilized. Nowadays I go about 2-3 times, which is recommended because typically you're supposed to have as many poops as you do meals throughout a day.

  • I suppose it could be that. But I am going to wait til after exams to high raw. I cannot start getting nervous in the middle of a four hour exam thinking "oh gosh, i need to excuse myself".

    I also plan to do a liver flush, parasite cleanse, and epsom salt colon cleanse. The program requires the epsom salt colon cleanse one day a week during the month long program.
