SW diet effecting digestive system?

Hi ladies (and gents)

I could do with some advice. This is my 3rd week of sw, (weigh in on wed) ad it is going really well. I lost 5 lbs in the first 2 weeks and am hoping for my half stone award this week!
Here is the problem, and I apologise for the TMI moment her... but it is having an interesting effect on my system. I have had a bad tummy and some loose stools for the last 3 days and my insides feel empty. I don't know how to explain it. I don't feel hungry or bloated just "airy" inside and quite gassy
Is it likely to be the diet? I cannot see another explanation for it. i am going to stick at it and hope it is just my body adjusting but would appreciate some advice or reassurance.

Hey. I know you posted this a while ago but I've just seen it and I had the same thing. I started slimming world and within a week I felt the same as you, it was horrible. I think I overdid it with the fruit etc so my body didn't get time to adjust. I also have IBS and can't eat too much wholegrain as its too rich. How do you feel now? I'm still trying to follow slimming world but introducing foods gradually to give my system time to adjust!
