  1. Thanks! Wow, quite a list there are a lot of things I recognize from what you write and I'm working on them. The last 2 days I filled a large lemonade jar with water and a slice of lemon and put it on the table. This way I don't forget drinking. And I'm really trying to make meals as relaxed as possible, paying attention to chewing properly. This is a hard one and I won't solve it until the weekend. But I am aware of it and there's already progress. I had another terrible night and it already started before I hit the bed. I slept 3x half an hour before it all got better around 5:30am. Lucki
  2. I had the most horrible night! I woke up with heavy stomach pain. It was so bad that even my back hurt. It was in my stomach area, but a little bit to my left. My belly was also very full, so I tried to give myself a massage. Than the diarrhea started. After two hours of mysery (and feeding my baby in between) it finally got better. I fell asleep for half an hour only to wake up with even more pain. Again diarrhea and also nausea (didn't throw up though). By the time it was over it was already morning and baby got awake. The rest is still sleeping so I have some time to recover. I had the
  3. Thank you both for the suggestions and input. I really appreciate all the help here as I am doing this alone. I am now 2 days without eggs and nuts. I woke up feeling amazing! I had the feeling that I could take over the world and I did a lot of things! I got a small problem with some gas starting in the afternoon and it turned into a full bloated feeling by the evening. Here's what I ate today: M1: tuna on a bed of salad greens, red pepper, tomatoes, olives, cucumber. Dressing was evoo, ground black pepper and lemon juice M2: we ate out and the only compliant food I found was grilled p
  4. Thanks! I didn't see a pattern until now with tomatoes and peppers. I will pay attention. I made ground beef in "red coconut milk" and a salad with greens, tomatoes and peppers, but this time no onions. And I am not bloated any more. I think I will avoid bananas, apples, onions, eggs and nuts for now and see what happens. If it's not helping, I will cut out raw veggies and nightsades too. If it is helping, I will try adding them in one by one. Good luck to you too on your search. It can be overwhelming sometimes...
  5. Thanks for the extra tip. I try to add now also some cooked/roasted veggies to every meal. Even though I have a feeling that salad is not doing anything bad. I have found one culprit: cashews. I couldn't help myself and had a handful two days ago before going for my evening ritual. Within an hour the mild bloating that I already had, increased quite a lot. Other things I suspect at the moment: bananas, onions and eggs. But here's what I ate yesterday: M1&2: can of tuna on a bed of green leafy veggies, red bell pepper, lots of olives and olive oil. Also 1 apple after meal 2 Than
  6. Thank you all for the reactions! Some stuff to think about... Not drinking enough might be adding to my misery. Lately I realize quite often in the evening that I barely drank that day.I need to remind myself to drink more. About the coconut oil: I have been using it already for more than 6 months and I didn't constantly get bloated in that time. But again, now I'm using more than before, so I won't rule it out. Good idea about the logging, this way I can also keep track of things myself. A little more info about my eating before I get into my menu for the day: the meals I mention are ba
  7. Here's the short story: I am currently ending my day 20. I still end up bloated in the evenings and I am just out of ideas as for where it comes from. First I suspected bananas, so I cut them out for some days. It did go better, because I didn't get so gassy during the day, but still got it in the evening. So I thought it might be the enormous amount of salad that I'm consuming lately, that my stomach is having difficulty breaking down all those greens and raw veggies. Today no salad, but still I am bloated. I did eat apples in the afternoon and one dried apricot that I baked
