Hi all, this is my 6th day of W30 and things have been going fine so far, apart from feeling very full at every meal because I'm not used to eating so much. I do have two questions but will split it up in two threads for clarity!
I used to be very bloated from eating, but things seemed to have calmed down after introducing probiotics and having just completing a round of IQS recently. (In between the IQS and whole30, I did have a week Long holiday where I ate local desserts etc though).
Today shortly after lunch, I've suddenly got an intense bout of bloating.
My lunch consisted of
-1 thick round of Chinese cabbage
-1 small sweet potato
-half a head of broccoli
-1 small red onion
-1 scotch bonnet
-1/2 can of tuna
-spoon of avocado
Shortly after I've had intense bloating that has not happened since months back when I had a smoothie bowl (and since stopped eating so much fruit). It's been 5 hours since and I'm still suffering from the bloating ):
addtional info is that it's also my second day of my period-- I'm usually more prone to cramping but this feels different from what I'd get.
I trawled the forums and also read up intensively on Low FODMAPs during this time and realised that almost all of my vegetables are on the caution and no no list the thing is, I've been eating those vegetables the past week with no problems with bloating at all. Is it the unfortunate combination of so many of them coming together that's causing it?
I'm reluctant to do FODMAPs right away as I just stocked up the pantry with lots of veggies that will not be allowed. I'm also not sure if it is advisable to do both FODMAPS and W30 at the same time. Would really appreciate any advice and suggestions!
By the way, I'd also appreciate comments on this meal in terms of portion sizes, I feel like I'm overeating at every meal ><
Thank you so much!
