    Question Garlic question?

    Primal Fuel
    Here's the deal,

    I have been eating a TON of garlic lately. I'm craving it. Its better than craving carbs or chocolate, but I believe my man will banish me from the bedroom if I can't fix one problem, it gives me the worst gas (TMI), but I am loving it. I am wondering where the craving is coming from. I understand that it feeds the healthy gut bacteria, so can I assume that I am fixing a gut problem by eating the garlic that my body is craving?

    Side note: Is there any help with the gas part besides beno?

    Thanks for the help all, happy day to you!

    I would expect that the gas issue is also due to a bacterial imbalance in the gut. May want to try fermenting. I lactoferment vegetables with plenty of garlic. I also LOVE garlic. I eat 5 or more cloves almost every day.

    Your body may be hungry for sulfur. Do you eat egg yolks, broccoli and cauliflower? They are good sources.

    I don't know if Beano would help. Do you take probiotics, yogurt, fermented foods?
