Hello. Did eating only big salads (tons of leafies) for 1+ month cause my diarrhea (undigested particles) intestinal gas and awful flatulence? Thanks!

In brief: No Protein?

Yes. Likely.
If you are not consuming protein you may damage your heart, your kidneys, your brain, and your immune system. And you may damage these things permanently. Please stop the salad only diet. It may be the worse decision you have made in your life.

Our digestive tracts are not designed for such a diet of excess fiber while a cow's is.
You are not tolerating all that roughage.
