  • TMI: GAS Question...

    I have been primal for 2 weeks so far and have had the worst gas of my life. Not necessarily indigestion, not stomach pains or anything, but just lots of smelly toots...I know this is totally TMI, but I was just wondering if this is normal as my body transitions to fat burning? I am really tired of it!

    Have you upped your veggies from what you were having before? Cruciferous vegetation (ie, broccoli, cauliflower, etc.) can do that.
    Most people don't realize how much energy it takes for me to pretend to be normal.

    If I wanted to listen to an asshole, I'd fart.

      I'm in my first week and have definitely noticed an increase of flatulence. I think it's just one's body readjusting to the new food.

        lots of veg does it to me. onions and garlic, as well as the cruciferous.

        one of my daughters is a toot machine! it's insane. but they don't stink and she doesn't complain of tummy aches and is very healthy. she LOVES milk and cheese, but I'm wondering if they don't love her.

        But I guess since she doesn't complain and seems so healthy, I won't change her diet at this point. I think it would be hard to keep her calories up without dairy. She's not a big meat eater - it makes her gag.

          Ever heard the term "Protein Fart"? It's an ongoing joke at my gym from people who switch to the paleo diet. It's a pretty common occurrence and it definitely starts to go away once you acclimate.

            After 2.5 months Primal, I hardly ever get gas--what a bonus!

                Red onion is the only primal thing that gives me gas.

                    A girl who eats steak, trains hard, and farts a lot?

                    I'm kind of confused as to why you are not already married.

                      Going on 9 months and less gas and bloating (virtually none of either) is one of the major positive side effects I've experienced. I was eating lots of brown rice, oatmeal, beans, etc. before. The other day I ate several (maybe a dozen or fifteen) dried apricots, and they made me quite gassy. Otherwise, I've had the opposite.

                        I went the opposite way. I'm never gassy now which means the people around me are just thrilled about it.

                            Not true, that's how I found my husband...there are men out there who appreciate a good fart!
