LA_girl Posted January 11, 2017 Share Posted January 11, 2017 Hi everyone! Thanks so much for all the advice posted so far-- I swear I'm constantly reading these posts, whether it's recipes/advice/encouragement! I'm just finishing Day 14 of my first Whole30. What drove me to do this seemingly crazy (but great!) diet was a food poisoning/stomach flu back in December and constant gas previous to starting. I've also been a slave to the sugar/fried foods dragon, but I think this diet has really helped me be in control of my cravings again. Yes!! However, I'm still constantly gassy and bloated, with some days better than others. Yesterday, I after breakfast, I had such bad gas, it made working hard. After reading the forums, I took a digestive enzyme, which helped. Today however, during my pre work-out snack (grapes-- not ideal, my grandmother served them to me! and jerky), I also felt rumblings and had to go to the bathroom 3x in an hour. I've eliminated nuts for the past few days and nightshades and cauliflower for the past week. But still these problems it's discouraging bc I thought these issues would subside, and I don't want to rely on a digestive enzyme forever. Around as recently as November, I didn't have really any trouble digesting anything nor gas (aside from possibly feeling some signs of lactose intolerance). I used to have a flat stomach, but it's been looking like I'm carrying a food baby all the time! lol Here's my food diary: Day 12 (fairly low amt of gas): Breakfast/lunch (work up late on Sunday :P)- kale sweet potato frittata, avocado, blueberries. 2 ground beef meatballs from left overs bc I was still hungry. -Snack- mango, strawberry smoothie (bad I know as well, but had to use this coupon) -Dinner- Chicken, spinach, spaghetti squash, napa and cabbage soup, banana Day 13 (terrible gas after breakfast): Breakfast- kale sweet potato frittata, avocado -Lunch- Ground beef meatballs, spaghetti squash, spinach, topped wshort rib ragu -Dinner- Chicken, spinach, spaghetti squash. Cashew milk, blueberries, banana + almond butter. Digestive enzyme taken and felt better -Postwork out meal- pork/napa soup, a little kombucha. Day 14 (moderate gas): Breakfast- kale sweet potato frittata, avocado -Lunch- Ground beef meatballs, spinach, spaghetti squash, topped w short rib ragu. Coconut flakes and strawberries. -Snack- grapes (I know this isn't the best), jerky --> during/after workout, stomach felt really bad, needed to go to the bathroom after a few times -Dinner: Chicken, spinach, spaghetti squash, avo. Strawberries, mango, coconut almond milk. A little kombochua. Digestive enzyme taken and felt much better. Also, how long after a meal should I expect to feel symptoms? In the past, I can tell if a meal has produced gas usually a few hours, but can it be from the day before? I know there are some other things in there people have mentioned as possible culprits (avocado, coconut, eggs), but my mind is being stretched on what to substitute in their place! Any advice would be greatly appreciated!! Thank you so much! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
