I am an 18 year old girl who lives a very healthy but chaotic lifestyle. I struggled all my life with severe ibs but I recently have cut out gluten dairy and most processed foods and have adopted a more plant based diet. I used to be severely constipated but now I have diharrea like bowel movements almost every morning and I just want to know will this get better as my body heals from all the gluten dairy and junk food?

    I can't offer a lot of advice on whether it'll get better but maybe try increasing fiber intake? I've heard that helps with diarrhea, I'm not too sure though.

    Wow you have given your poor body a shock cutting out everything at the same time, yes Get rid of the junk food first, then the gluten, and only then the dairy.

    ?Are you still eating alot of things with sugar, that can make things very loose.

    ?Try some yoghurt, one with lots of acidophilus and other good bacteria and see if that helps settle things down to closer to normal.

    ?Can you tell us what you are eating, break it down to breakfast lunch + dinner, so we can see maybe where you are going a little bit wrong, but I would think if you are being sensible things will settle.

    ?Remember you still need some grains, what are your proteins, and calcium, where are you getting that from now, you don't want to later in life be suffering from osteoporosis, and the age you are, your body is still growing, and using a lot of energy to do that.
