Except for the vast majority of us whose bloat disappeared completely when we dropped grains and sugar? You're just going to ignore that - okay. And no, I can't regularly eat starchy fruit, either. Good for people who can!
I agree with the use it or lose it for digestion. Exercise and metabolism play a huge role in digestion as well. I do think most you yous guys bloating is due to undereating and mass elimination of food groups.
Undereating is not something I know how to do except for IF, but then I make up for it with feasts so I'm technically rarely undereating over the course of the week. So I can't vouch for that one either way.
I usually stay out of this thread because it's such an obvious waste of time, but I had to point out that massive crater you just stepped in, in case you couldn't see yourself falling flat on your face.
I find I can eat massive amounts beyond satiety and all goes well. No bloating. But that's meat, eggs, fat, some chocolate, nuts, berries - nothing too watery or fibrous on a regular basis, usually. I try to eat things I can digest, and little of what I can't. Fruit is a waste of stomach space during meal time, save it for the end of your eating window, or just have a little bit.
To eat more would mean eating until it's uncomfortable, at least for a short period of time. Is this a bad thing? Is force-feeding really important to become healthier (in my case?) I find that I under eat most days because of stupid bloating like everyone else in here. The stomach is a muscle so perhaps the bloating is because the stomach isn't big enough esp. with high water content fruits. I'm not eating any 'gassy' foods that could ferment (unless sweet potatoes do).

Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.
