I'm so glad you chose to share your experience! I began the diet, was doing great (as far as my bowels were concerned) for the 1st 3 weeks. Downhill from there. Losing more weight, getting new symptoms: a hyper-type bowel with scary feelings of anxiety. My latest discovery also is that most of these symptoms are related to food sensitivities ! Knowing allows management, and I agree, management promotes healing. Thanks again for sharing. It's been awhile....I hope you are moving forward and doing well!
