    I would like a little more information on constipation, the button that seem to take me to the constipation question and answers does not respond. Thank you so very much

    Agree. Did not supply information about constipation that a low carb diet causes..

    You can find information about constipation in the beginner series, or just search it on dietdoctor.com.

    Since starting LCHF 3–4 days ago, I've had diarrhea shortly each meal. (Only one meal a day, in the evening.) I don't see this as a listed side effect. Could it be something else? An adjustment to higher fat? Rebellion to no junk food?

    After experiencing it myself, I researched and read that some people get diarrhea when starting a low carb diet. I had the same experience.. Its normal and goes away, as the body adjusts. Some people get constipated, others like us get initial diarrhea.

    All of my stomach issues have disappeared since doing keto!! I was never diagnosed with IBS officially, but I had a lot of issues. So happy with that!!
