Hello I'm on day 23 of Whole30. I have not seen any major changes, or experienced the "Tiger Blood" effect. Too often, I am constipated, and I have so much gas all the time (and occasional pain, cramping, and bloating). How do I troubleshoot?

If you post a day or two of typical meals, including approximate serving sizes, we can take a look and see if anything stands out.

In general, things that might cause constipation include not drinking enough water or not eating enough vegetables. Gas and bloating might be from the types of vegetables you're eating -- in particular, cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cabbage, or cauliflower can cause it, and in general any vegetables eaten raw are more likely to cause it than cooked ones. Eating a lot of nuts and seeds can also cause bloating and other digestive issues.

Oh wow!! Thanks, that definitely explains it. I've not been drinking enough water; too many nuts; broccoli, fermented cabbage; and I made a big batch of cauliflower rice, which I've also been  eating everyday. Of course, I'm eating other things too, and I've been gradually eating less nuts this weeks. So, I will start drinking more water, and send you a typical day of two of meals. Thanks again.
