I have a somewhat big problem. Usually, I had no problem with digestion whatsoever, I was regular at the bathroom every morning, I would feel clean and withouth gas everyday.
In the January, I started with a complete cut diet, I’m down 25 pounds (205 currently) and I plan to lose at least 10 more (I have to for my sport, volleyball). Everything is great, I have enough energy, my practices are going great (every day), I go to gym 3x a week pure maintenance (for what it’s worth). I just can’t figure out what’s wrong with my digestion.
If I miss going to bathroom in the morning, I’m awfully bloated and the smell when I fart is like something died inside of me. If I have a mayor dump in the morning, everything is great (no smelly farts etc.)
This is aprox. my diet (Do I lack fibers?) around 2200 - 2500kcal a day. I often snack a few walnuts throughout the day.
9 AM - Whey, cottage cheese, maybe a banana, oats.
12 AM - Chicken breasts, green peas or brown rice, green veggies
3 PM - Chicken breasts with flax bread
6 PM - Usually whey, cottage cheese, milled flax seeds
9 PM - 4-8 hard boiled eggs, some walnuts
If I wake up early (5-6AM) I’ll usually have a meal that’s similiar to the first one.
The 3 PM meal is highly diverse, so anything (within the guidelines) goes.
Every shake that consists of whey, cottage cheese and water gets 2 tbsp of milled flax seeds.
I get 1-2 apples between the feedings.
As I said, no problems with energy, tiredness, sleep etc.
