I found out that after having my gastroscopy, I wasn’t referred on to a GI specialist, so I’ve had to arrange a further referral off my GP, which will take months.
My digestive issues are really affecting my quality of life, so I’ve decided to do something about it and try the elemental diet, seeing as I have all the symtoms of SIBO.
For 3 weeks I’m going to consume all my calories from shakes consisting of easily digestable, non-fermenting foods.
The shakes will consist of -
30g hydrolyzed beef isolate
5g Coconut Oil
5g Cold Pressed Olive Oil
5g Flax Oil
1/2g Mulitivitamin & Mineral Powder
1/2 tsp Salt
I’ve chosen beef isolate as whey never really sits right with me and with it being hydrolyzed it should be digested easily and quickly. The EAA are to fortify it with any missing amino acids.
I’ll consume them four times a day, and hopefully starve whatever’s causing me the problems. I tried one of the shakes today pre-workout and it wasn’t that bad, also caused minimal reflux and actually kept me satisfied 'til one hour PWO.
