  1. It's embarrassing to write about this, but ever since I started whole 30, I've had the worst smelling gas. It's awful! I've never had this problem prior to whole30. Is this normal? Otherwise, I feel perfectly fine. I'm on day 12. I'm not eating any new foods so to speak. Just eating way more veggies and eggs than I did before I started whole30. Thank you!

    Day 12: stinky gas since I started

    I did read it, and I thought I had eliminated all red area things. I guess I'll eliminate yellow area items too. Thank you for responding! Can I ask, why would these symptoms just develop now? I've never had digestive issues, heartburn, bloating, constipation, etc that would indicate problems. I've eaten all of these things for many years (the ones I'm now having to eliminate). My diet before wasn't the greatest, but it wasn't horrible either, but I felt better, or at least less stinky before whole 30. Other than gas I feel fine, I don't really feel much different than before I started. Is that normal? Am I doing something wrong?

    Day 12: stinky gas since I started

    So I'm on day 26 and my gas is still stinky the past week I've cut out cauliflower, cabbage, and eggs. Still haven't seen a difference. Any other suggestions? Breakfast lately: -1 chicken Apple sausage link -sweet potato OR red potato -carrots OR beets w/ a green (spinach, mixed greens) *sometimes a fruit or avocado, every now and then I was eating 2 fried eggs every morning, but wasn't sure if that was contributing to my gas. Lunch: Usually leftovers (see below), or a meal similar to breakfast Dinner: -mel joulwan's chili OR -hamburger on a bed of spring mix with tomato -red potato -half an avocado OR -ground turkey spaghetti sauce over sweet potato noodles OR -chicken and sausage jambalaya over caulirice (haven't done the "rice" in over a week. OR -taco salads Mostly the only meats I eat are chicken Apple sausage, ground beef, ground turkey, chicken Veggies lately: Always cooked: sweet potato, red potato, carrots, beets, spinach, mixed greens, mushroom Raw: spring mix, cucumber, tomatoes Don't drink anything other than water (probably don't get 75iz in, but try to come close) Have the occasional banana or clementine, try to with a meal, sometimes stand alone. I've been taking a probiotic. What else should I do?? It still stinks so bad!

    Day 12: stinky gas since I started

    Can I take a probiotic? Would that be whole30 compliant?

    Day 12: stinky gas since I started

    Thank you! What are FODMAP foods? You can see my daily meals here (if you want to take a look visually): Otherwise... Breakfast : 2 fried eggs with veggies (whatever I have on hand: either sweet potato, red potato, mushroom, onion, mixed greens, bell pepper, zucchini, cabbage, cauliflower rice) and sometimes half avocado. Lunch: left over dinner or throw some veggies with chicken sausage and half avocado or a small clementine Dinner: a protein (shredded pork butt, beef, ground turkey, chicken, chicken sausage) with veggies My meals tend to look the same, and I usually have the same variety of veggies but change it around every day. So may do sweet potatoes with mixed greens for breakfast. Then dinner may just be taco meat over cauliflower rice with lettuce tomato and guacamole. Or spaghetti sauce over zucchini noodles. These are things I've always eaten, but I'd say I'm probably eating way more frequent and in larger quantities. And eggs, I eat them every day now versus like once a week before whole 30. But it's awful! I've seriously never had gas this bad. And I've always been very regular, but ever since starting whole30, I'm not nearly as regular. I feel great and enjoy doing whole30 so much, but it's embarrassing being this stinky. What do you think I should do?? Thanks!
