    This from Cd website.

    Just after starting on the Cambridge Diet I suffered from diarrhoea. Is this normal?
    This is a minor problem and is considered a possible transient effect that will last for only a short time. Some people have systems that are not used to the mineral content in the Cambridge Diet. The solutions are very simple. One is to take a bulk laxative such as Metamucil, or Fibogel. This will provide bulk to the intestinal system and alleviate the problem. Another is to consume a full glass of water following the Cambridge Diet meal in order to dilute the effect of the minerals on the body. A third solution is to take the Cambridge Diet in the form of mini meals (six half portions per day) initially to slow the mineral intake.
    Another possible cause of continued diarrhoea is lactose intolerance. Some people cannot digest the lactose in milk products, and diarrhoea can occur. If this is the case, an addition of the enzyme lactase is sufficient to solve the problem. Lactase is available from chemists or health food stores and is a very inexpensive solution to the problem.
