Success stories and experiences on how the Paleo Diet has helped with Irritable Bowel Syndrome.

I had chronic constipation my whole life. After just a week or two of starting Paleo I was finally normal and have been normal ever since! It's been almost a year now and feel amazing on Paleo. I'll never eat another way! My partner and her mom actually had the opposite problem and would have terrible diarrhea after pizza or other heavy foods. Same is true for her. They have been normal ever since going paleo too!

I had IBS symptoms for decades; additionally, I had my gallbladder out in 2004; horrifyingly, I was also on Metformin several times over the course of the last 10 years. To say I had 'issues' with my GI system was an understatement. I've spent years in the restroom, dumping food moments after I ate it, in pain, backed up/impacted. It really started to impact my weight and health - when you lose your lunch within 20 minutes of eating it, you don't get much nutrition, and you're Fing hungry again! Nothing helped. Until I went Primal and gave up legumes and grains. If it wasn't such a icky thing to discuss, I'd shout it from the rooftops. The freedom! The lack of pain, accidents, the regulation of appetite, getting nutrients and gaining strength! I also started regrowing hair I'd been losing. I can't say enough about how much Primal/Paleo has helped me. The IBS is only the tip of the iceberg.
