Dear FunnyTummy
You may be reacting to the possible reduction in dietary fibre in your diet because of cutting out starch at one of your main meals. Dietary fibre provides bulk to the stools. On the other hand you may have developed an infection which coincides with your change in diet. If this runny tummy persists and starts to bother you, it may be a good idea to have a medical checkup just to make sure that you don't have an bowel infection.
Good luck with the weightloss
