What is causing bloating?

Recommended Posts

Hi--I'm about 4 days post Whole30 and yesterday introduced maple syrup (just a few drops in my tea twice...about 1/2 a tsp) and whole milk (half a cup in a latte yesterday...tasted gross, and I've been craving it all month!...and then some in my tea last night) and I noticed last night I had the usual bloating from post Whole30 in my upper stomach. I'm guessing milk would be the culprit rather than the maple syrup? I know I should have introduced them separately... you live and learn...

Thanks! Lucy

Probably the milk, yes. Go back to whole30 eating for at least two days, or until you're feeling good again and the bloat is gone if it takes a little longer than that, then you can add an extra reintro day of either just milk or just maple syrup to confirm. I would be very surprised if that tiny amount of maple syrup caused that kind of bloating, but it's a fairly common reaction to dairy.
