I don't have a whole lot of weight to lose but I am trying to be healthier and have started a low carb diet. I am eating tons of veggies but it leads to terrible painful stomach gas and bloating. Crying or Very sad I have it normally but not as constant as I have with this diet. Does anyone know a good natural method to stomach gas relief or veggies that don't cause it to start with? Thanks so much.

Certain vegetables are "gassier" than others (cruciferous such as broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage) If you're eating plenty of leafy greens, no cruciferous, and still experiencing bloating, check your water intake (8 8-oz glasses daily, minimum) Are you also eating a lot of artificial sweeteners or Atkins bars? They can cause a great deal of discomfort. If none of this applies, there is a product called Bean-O that works for some when taken before a high-gas meal. There may also be a digestive issue going on that could be checked by a digestive specialist.

My trainer is taking probiotics for the same issue. The bacteria and enzymes could be all out of whack. you can read about them here if you like.

Bean-o - I need to try some myself, since Gallbladder surgery, don't feel as bloated & watching foods still but I know my enzymes are out of whack...

I had the same issues when I started eating healthier. I called it trapped gas and it was terrible. Over time my body adjusted to the increase in fiber but if I'm having black beans at lunch I won't have yams at dinner, etc. Also, more water will help digestion. You can add fiber as one of your selections on fatsecret. I think they suggest 30 grams for women so you can monitor to see if you are going over that and which foods are higher in fiber than others.

probiotics were what I needed.

Have you tried butter? I can't politely say what this does for a body, but it may help.

I grabbed some probiotics from the co-op last night and took the first one this morning. I don't know how quickly they work but we'll see!

Sorry, that link to the enzymes should have been this.

It works best if you copy and paste it.

I always have problems with gas when I eat a lot of dairy products. Milk products turn into lactic acid and can cause gas. I would also recommend a well balanced diet--moderation in all things is the key. Julie

If none of that helps you might cut out gluten for a week or two and see if that helps. It's in a lot things you wouldn't think about- like some soy sauce, so it may be hard at first. But, since you are low carb not too hard.

Keffir is great for your digestive bacteria. Also, greek yogurt is good too. Look for one that has multiple bacteria cultures. I was having problems too after I bumped my fiber to 40-70 grams a day. Started yogurt several times a day and it helped tremendously. Or, maybe it was just my system adjusting.

Alkaline powder (to bring down the acid in your stomach) helps me.
