If this could help anyone else, it is worth while trying.
I am an active 67 years old male. I had my gal bladder removed 2 years ago. Stomach cramps, gas, and explosive diarrhea all through this time. Every week removing something in my diet to find a cause. Fatty foods, bacon, sausage, hamburger, all meats, dairy products, any seasonings, then salads, then vegetables, then grains, then coffee and tea, on and on. 6 different types of probiolics. Finally just gave up and accepted it as how the rest my life would be, so eat what I want and stay close to a toilet.
Three weeks ago we started looking what to put in our garden, had not planted one in a couple years. Okra, wow have not had fried okra in two years. Bought a bag of frozen, and Wife fried it up in plenty of oil. I did not have anything planned the next few days, and it can't be any worse anyhow. I ate way too much of it. Really tasted good to me.
Next bowel movement I am like a kid the first time he pooped in the toilet. Almost a normal stool. Next BM back to normal diarrhea. I am very conscious of what I have eaten the past few days. Bought some more frozen okra and ate it. Back to almost a normal BM. Repeat again, same results. Three times in two years I had a normal BM. Each of these three times I have had greasy fried okra with normal other foods. Bacon, biscuits and gravy for breakfast, cheeseburger and okra for lunch, stuffed jalapenos for dinner, normal BM.
I have no explanation or even a thought as to why, but I can guarantee fried okra will continue to be in my daily diet.
I hope everyone finds their solution. Life is miserable with constant explosive diarrhea.
