Digestive Issues

Posted , 6 users are following.

So two years ago I started a low carb diet. At the same time I started eating a TON of watermelon to curb my sweet tooth( one whole melon per day). I started being fatigued and had bad reflux which sometimes I can feel in my neck and ears. My symptoms seem to get better when I eliminate sugar for a couple days  but then my symptoms come back when I start eating fruit again. Could excessive fruit really be at the root of my gut issues?

      THanks no I haven’t tried other fruits except bananas and I don’t tolerate them well at all. I seem to do fine with cake and occasional sweets. Milk also doesn’t bother me it seems.

    A whole melon is a lot for one person.  Cut right down on your fruit intake and see if that helps.
