  • Bloating

    No matter what I do - eat primal, lift weights, leptin reset, walk, swim, sleep, IF etc - I am always bloated.

    I drink a lot of black tea first thing in the morning and have a strong black coffee at circa 11.00.

    No booze, sweets, sodas or grains.

    Thoughts - Help?

    Do you eat any dairy? Could be a food sensitivity...

      Thanks - yes, I do - cheese and greek yoghurt, sometimes cream. I'll drop them and see what happens.

        Were you bloated before you started primal? If not, did you add a new food, or start eating more of a food you didn't eat often? If that's the case, try cutting out whatever food that is.

        If you were bloated before and it just hasn't gone away then you might need to do an elimination diet which is annoying, but gets results.

          I've struggled with this, too, and am currently doing better than ever before.

          Dropping grains helped a lot, but didn't solve the problem.

          Dropping dairy during a Whole 30 didn't seem to help me, but it does for a lot of people so I'd definitely recommend it.

          Adding probiotics in the form of fermented non-dairy foods -- umeboshi plum paste, homemade sauerkraut and kimchi -- has helped significantly.

          Finally, dramatically reducing my intake of leafy, raw veggies has helped a lot. I eat fewer veggies now, and I almost always cook them. N=1. Don't be afraid to explore your reaction to foods that are considered safe and healthful for most people.

            Thank you all very much. I was suffering this before going primal. I do have a large gall staone and have had fatty liver - which I probably still have.

            T he idea of experimenting with taking foods out of the diet seems to have merit. I'll try such an approach and see what develops.

            Thanks again for your kind comments and advice.

                  As you test things, remember that caffiene can cause bloating in some folks. Good luck and let us know what you find out!

                    Do you take soy protein? That's often a cause. And as noted, probiotics help tremendously. If you ARE using soy protein, simply switch to whey protein. Within a day the bloating usually disappears. [Soy in general causes blaoting in a lot of people--you may want to think through everything you're eating to see if it appears--]

                      I switched from pasteurized dairy to raw dairy and that helped significantly. I also eat fermented foods daily with cooked foods. They provide live enzymes and probiotics to help digest cooked food.

                        I hope no one here is using soy protein ...or whey protein for that matter. Whey protein is highly processed and rancid. Both will cause bloating!

                          I ate a bunch of salty meats (ham/sausage/bacon) this weekend and am 7lbs heavier in 2 days. I usually eat none to very little cured meats, so this was the only change.

                            Don't say that on the fitness forums--they won't believe you! It amazes me how many Primal Blueprint followers will scarf down whey protein shakes and think they are helping themselves!

                              I wonder if this might have something to do with coffee and dairy. I'll drop both and see.

                              PCG - I don't consume soy or whey proteins.

                              Thanks again foir all the advice. Wonderful to know there are such generous and helpful peole about.
