stomach trouble


Recommended Posts

  I completed my first round over the summer but in September I fell off the wagon and started eating anything and everything!!  Now I am on my second round of whole 30 and having a lot of difficulty getting my stomach back on track.  I am eating 3 meals and sometimes need 1-2 snacks a day.  But since day 7 I have been extremely bloated and gassy.  It was not like this on my first round and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions as to why this could be occurring.  I am adding a sample meal plan for my days.

6:30- 3 eggs, chicken sausage, spinach, 1/2 sweet potato

10:30 - apple with cashew butter (if needed)

12:30- chicken with a veggie, banana

3:00- carrots with sesame butter

6:30 chicken with veggies and a sweet potato

sometimes I need a night snack as well.

If you check out the timeline, you'll notice that bloated and gassy is completely normal around the stage you're in!!


Your actual meals sound low in fat - adding fat may keep you feeling satisfied between meals and eliminate the need for snacks. If you're still hungry between meals, go for a mini meal of protein, fats and vegies over fruit/nuts.

Also make sure you're getting sufficient vegies - I aim for 2-3 cups per meal - and stay sufficiently hydrated.

If you're eating lots of your vegies raw, perhaps try cooking them to help digestion.
