  • Meat n Gas

    I have just started a couple of days ago but I've noticed (so has my wife and son) that the increased consuption of meat and veggies has really made me somewhat gassy. Are others experiencing this too? Is this something that will/may continue or is it just an adaptive response to the change of diet?

    I have been wanting to cut out all the processed foods that I can in order to be healthier. Any advice is appreciated.

    Strange, when I'm eating low carb I almost never fart except when I have to go to the bathroom.


    Maybe your gut needs time to adjust? Or perhaps you are sensitive to the veggies? The fiber could make you gassy, I suppose, if you aren't used to it.
    Remember, you are unique just like everybody else.

          For me it was the opposite. Farting was a competitive sport in my large family and I was the champion! As I weaned off the grains the gas subsided, my gut was definitely trying to tell me something.

            I'd guess your flora are adapting. Give them a couple of weeks to sort themselves out. I hope the wife doesn't make you sleep in a tent meanwhile.

              +1. I'd add some probiotics and digestive enzymes over the short term.

              Now Gr8 dophilus and Garden of Life Primal Defense are two good probiotics.

              Now Super Enzymes are my current fave digestive enzymes.

                I was hypochloridic. Now Foods Superenzyme (capsules, not tablets) resolved the issue.

                    Are you consuming considerably more veggies than you were before? If so, that could be the culprit, until your body adjusts. Try cutting back on the veggies and sneaking back up a little at a time. I'm firmly in the "no farts" camp myself, so don't give up.

                    Adrianag, I'm sorry about your fall from your family Mount Olympus. I hope you've found other things you can excel in. ;-)

                        Raw vegetables can be "tougher" (? is that the right term?) for your body to process and can give you gas and or stomach "noises"...that happens to me a LOT. So it might not be the meat at all...might be the vegetables. Are you cooking them, or eating a lot of raw salads too?

                          I'm the same, raw salads do it to me every time! LOL! I think it's just the extra fibre and once your body adjusts you should be fine. In the meantime try having more cooked veggies

                            I have the same problem as well - if I eat healthy (no sugar, only a little bit rice with cumin for breakfeast, meat, cooked veggies, no diary, no flatulent veggies like cabbage or onions, no fruits) I have so much more gas than normally. Today I even decided to go a step back and eat bread and chocolate the whole day because it became so bad (stomach cramps, gas, bloating...) and I wanted to relax a little bit.
                            I am just wondering how long a body needs to adapt? Is it better to change in one big step or in a lot of small steps? Because I do not have any health issues while eating a standard diet it's quite hard to change to something that makes me feel bad, even if I know it should be good for me.

                            And I am wondering whether the people that feel so much better without grains might have had a light form of gluten intolerance and therefore feel better without?
