Beth Christie Posted February 13, 2013 Share Posted February 13, 2013 Hello! I've seen a couple times on this forum that people are cutting out eggs and I was just wondering the reasoning behind this? I did my Whole30 in October and have stayed mainly Paleo- and when I off road I can really tell because how I feel, sleeping patterns etc. all go really downhill. The only physical side effect I get is an extremely bloated tummy. I used to think my pregnant looking belly was just because I was fat, but after my Whole30 shrunk my belly to almost nothing I realized it was actually because of food intolerance. (22 years later I realize this. So much wasted time and anguish.) Now the problem I have is that every now and then I still return back to my pregnant belly bloating- I've noticed it after eating almonds and it's just happened now after eating my regular breakfast of eggs and sweet potato hash browns, even though pre-breakfast I was marveling at how tiny my stomach was. (I still haven't got over it ) The other piece of the puzzle I haven't mentioned yet is that for my entire life my average BM has been less than 1 time a week, but I've never felt constipated or backed up, I've only just noticed since my Whole30 that the only effect has been a little belly bloating before my BM. So after all that, my question is if anybody has any advice on what is causing the bloating and how to get rid of it? Is it because of my lower than average BMs (even though I feel fine)? I'm drinking my kombucha a couple times a week, and drinking my coffee every morning to try and regulate it but I've never been able to raise it to more than twice a week. Or could it be something that's still in my diet that makes me puff up like a pastry every now and then? Any advice is welcomed to help kick my yoga pants out of my weekly rotation once and for all!
