    Bloating after exercise

    So I wasn't sure whether to post this here or in the Nutrition forum but here we go:

    I stay pretty strictly primal (dairy every once in a while, it doesnt bother me) and when I just walk every day and don't do intense exercise I lose weight fairly easily. BUT when I sprint, or lift, or play hockey I get really bloated. Like a nice round gut. Then it takes 2-3 days for it to fully go away and it only does if I go back to walking/minimal exercise again. I used to work out everyday when I was training for ice hockey and never had this problem. And it isn't like I am concerned about my weight, it is truly just getting bloated/feeling gross afterwards.

    Anyone had this happen before? Any insights on what could be causing this? I don't add carbs or eat any differently on days I work out more intensely. It is quite frustrating since I really like lifting...

    Do your hands or ankles swell as well or is just the ol' gut?
    People too weak to follow their own dreams will always try to discourage others.

    My belly gets huge after a hike. I don't know what causes it. You'd think it would shrink as I'm probably dehydrated and had to have worked off some calories. For me, sprinting makes it flatter, as does a long week of eating mainly beef to the point where I'm almost making myself sick from it.
