Intestine issues in the morning
« on: August 30, 2021, 10:27:41 pm »
Hello all,

Lately (at least 1-2 months as i can remember) i have been having some strange issues in the morning. There is a lot of noise coming from intestines/abdomen area. A bit like frogs sounds, like 'hunger' sounds, as well as a noise that sounds like some liquid is being excreted. The latter seems to come from the left side of my abdomen. In the morning it also always feels like i have/want to go number 2, but usually either some small stuff comes out or nothing. Every now and then there is some very light cramping that goes away either with or without pooping. Everything that comes out looks normal, and there is no pain or anything. No matter what i do or what happens on the toiler in the morning, after some hours I always feel perfectly fine and have no discomfort during or after eating. I have the idea that during my sleep my body is maybe getting rid of some things via the intestines, but it is having some trouble getting it out all the way.

I eat 2 times a day, at lunch (12:00-13:00) and at dinner(18:00-20:00), never feel like eating breakfast. I eat mostly raw meat, raw dairy and raw eggs. Sometimes a pickle or some olives and a piece of fruit. I have been doing this for about 1 year. Before 1,5 years of cooked with the same ingredients. My food intake is pretty constant, so now im trying to listen to my body a bit more and change some things. For instance, im eating less red meat, more pork/chicken/fish. And im moving away from a lot of butter for fat and trying to get some good lard. I have pure beef fat, although i like the taste i never really feel like eating it.

It seems like there is some indigestion/constipation going on. I also have bad breath, which seems to indicate digestion issues as well. I read a lot that constipation is because of to little fat, but i really wouldnt know how much is enough.Does anybody have any ideas on what to try? It has been pretty recent, so maybe something changed in my body although i do not think i had any big detox events or something. Have not really been sick for a long time.

Thanks in advance! :)

I'd try eating high meat and more animal fat. As well as innards, if you don't eat them yet. I can't stomach too much butter. Beef fat has been a game changer for me. The body knows when it has had enough of the animal fat. When your body adapts to animal fat you should crave it.
Trying is good. Perhaps you do better without dairy or eggs most of the time.

Well, I'm having the same kind of experience I notice whenever I eat raw (which I need to be more disciplined in).  The same intestinal noises happen to me at night, even though I'm not hungry anymore. I feel really good (really peaceful mood) when I eat like this, so I don't think anything is wrong. Maybe the digestive juices are being revived after spending so long on cooked food.

Dairy has always caused me similar intestinal issues, I would recommend eliminating it for at least three weeks to see if that improves anything.

Hi guys,

Thanks for the suggestions. I was also thinking of quitting dairy for a bit, eventhough i really enjoy drinking milk/kefir/butter. Hopefully i can get a constant supply of fresh pigsfat to replace the butter with, will discus this tomorrow with the local farmer. I do use milk as hydration, especially needed when i do sports or work outside... so i will have to see how to stay hydrated.

The intestinal noises also sometimes appear in the evening, and they do not bother me in those cases. It is only in the morning when i feel something is off. If it would be only noises, i wouldnt mind to much, although i do feel that normal/healthy digestion would be soundless.

@Sabertooth, you do not eat any dairy anymore now? It always gives/gave you issues?

@Odal, i do eat high meat indeed. I should try to do this more regularly. Due to the smell i eat it outside and due to the crappy weather in the Netherlands, i automatically eat it sporadically...

I don't tolerate dairy well at all, I can drink small amounts of raw cream, and eat small amounts of raw sharp cheddar, but if I eat it for more than a few days in a row, I will always have some digestive issues.

I would also caution against pigfat, because its very difficult to find good quality.

I personally prefer pasture raised sheep fat as my primary fat source.
