I have been on a low carb/no carb diet for about 5 months now. During this time, I have been consuming my carbs from vegetables about 99% of the time. I have also been consuming my bodyweight in protein through whey protein and meat and have increased my healthy fats as well for energy. I have seen drastic results as I have dropped about 15 pounds in that time frame, put on muscle from lifting and have gotten cut from burning body fat. For the past week I have had diarrhea and I cannot figure out why. For 2 or 3 days it was really bad, now it will happen on occasion, but I get really gassy after eating a lot of vegetables at lunch with chicken, turkey, tuna etc. Does anyone know if my body just cant take not having anything dry in my system anymore? Since I have been eating pretty much fiber, drinking about a gallon of water a day and consuming so much water from vegetables, maybe my body has just had enough of all of it? I feel fine other than my stomach, no vomiting or anything so I am starting to rule out a stomach bug. I want to continue seeing my great results, but also want to get rid of what ever is going on in my body. Maybe just start eating whole grains in the morning for some substance and see how it goes? Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Low Carb Diet and Diarrhea

Your bodyweight in protein? I didn't think that was possible.
On a serious note: You may be eating too much protein. I tend to get digestive problems when I exceed 200g daily.
Also, why are you on a low carb diet? Just eat at a caloric deficit and you'll lose weight just fine.
I would advise you read the stickies at the top of this forum.
Important: Bare in mind diarrhea is a genuine illness, and if it persists you should see a doctor.
