Low Carb Diet Tips: How To Get Rid Of Intestinal Problems Easily

In this article I will tell you how to fight back irritable bowel syndrome and diarrhea and regain your normal health.

How To Fight Diarrhea

If you are just starting out on a low carb diet, it is not unusual to face symptoms of diarrhea. Actually such symptoms occur because your body, so far adjusted to excessive carbohydrate intake, now has to learn to burn off the excess carbs and live without it.

If you have been on a high carb diet before, such as white bread, white rice, white sugar, white flour, rice krispies, bagels, donuts, chips, etc., then it will take some time, usually a few weeks, for your body to adjust itself to the new diet program. However, once your body gets adjusted to the new low carb diet program, you will feel better, because now, instead of sugary and starchy foods, you are eating real foods such as meats, fruits, and vegetables.

Also, you should reduce the intake of “sugar free” candies or chocolate bars. This is because these foods are usually made up of sweeteners such as glycerin, sorbitol or maltitol – things which don’t get absorbed well in the intestine, and hence, cause gas and diarrhea.

If you are having loose motions: that is, if your stools are a bit watery and loose, you can take a small dose of Metamucil or plain psyllium husks. It will help tighten up your bowels by removing excess water out of it.

If diarrhea is coupled with gas and bloated abdomen, you need to take a serious look at the types of foods you are eating. Maybe there are some foods which are not getting properly absorbed in your body, and causing food intolerance.

How To Fight Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

Ibs is an intestinal disorder which causes gas, bloating, and cramps. Usually, ibs occurs to people who suffer either from diarrhea or constipation or both. If you feel a strong urge to pass the bowels but cannot do so, then you may be suffering from ibs.

The cause of ibs is unknown. Usually ibs is not harmful for our intestines, but it can cause temporary distess and annoyance to some people, particularly if they cannot attend marriage parities, or social events, or report to work in time. Ibs however, can be controlled by the application of proper medications. For more information, [adrotate banner="54"]
