Yes I know pain isn’t normal, but more curious about during the transition. Been keto going on 20 months, about 4 weeks ago talked the wife into trying carnivore with me. First 2 weeks went fine for me, though didn’t lose any weight. Ketones moved up to steady 1.2 from a normal 0.5, so I think that’s good. About 2 weeks ago I started getting mild stomach discomfort. Figured it was either from adjustment from eliminating all carbs and would go away or I ate something bad. Starting late last week the pains got worse. BMs during the entire time carnivore have been mostly normal, mostly daily, though today I had a touch of diarrhea. The pain somewhat comes in waves, though it’s mostly constant. It feels like I’ve got a huge gas bubble that won’t move, but I’ve not been gassy (sorry if TMI) or that I have to go to the bathroom immediately, though nothing happens when I do. Been hard to sleep some nights. Never had any problems like this in my life, and am well fat adapted at this point. I have a regularly scheduled dr. appointment scheduled for next week, but I’m going to try to move it up to this week.
I know the doctor is just going to say “eat more fiber. red meat and fat are bad for your digestion, blah blah blah.” but I still need ot make sure it’s nothing serious. Hoping it’s just my body adjusting. Weight down about 10 pounds, mostly in the period since the pain started. Anyone have any thoughts?
