Bloating

I'm curious if anyone else experiences extreme bloating after eating. I have been diligently following the gluten/wheat free diet since late Oct. and still have no relief from bloating. It's very uncomfortable and totally out of proportion to my size and weight. Any comments or suggestions? Appreciate it...thanks

cinzia,

Yes, I have the same problem, and I went gluten-free last Halloween. I am beginning to suspect that food combining may play a large role in my ongoing discomfort. Not too long ago, I ate a meal where I actually didn't bloat: two turkey hot dogs and a salad for breakfast! (I was out of everything else!) I'm trying to convince myself to separate dense proteins from grains and starches (and eat fruit strictly by itself) for a while to see what happens, but I am unfortunately very nearly addicted to white rice at the moment and just can't seem to let it go, especially since I make a lot of stir-fried food. Maybe as I add more whole grains back into my diet, my craving for white rice will diminish, which should make it easier for me to separate grains from protein. I'll let you know what I discover, if you're interested, although it may take awhile to get to the testing phase!

I was gluten free for 2 months, and still getting bloated like crazy. I could have been 6 months pregnant! Well, I FINALLy threw up my arms and gave up dairy too. I was really resistant to it, I didn't want to give up cheese. In just a few days, I have noticed a BIG difference in my bloating. Now, I just have a little air, instead of feeling like the good year blimb.

I have heard that dairy is a very common trouble area for many of us. I would try emliminating for a couple weeks, see if that helps you out at all.

I also had the same problem with bloating after being gluten free for over 3 months. It caused me to give up on the diet. When I finally recommitted to the diet in January I stil had the same bloating issues. I blamed it on corn based products at first and then I discovered Pioneer's Digestive Enzymes which have worked wonders on my bloating. I have days where there is nothing at all and it amazes me. I've never had a completely non-bloated stomach!

It seems with all the damage our intestinal wall has sustained due to gluten, that these digetive enzymes "help" digest the extra stuff our intestines just can't manage i.e. fiber, sugar, carbs and even lactose. You'll absorb more nutrients that way too. I get my enzymes at Whole Foods but they are available online.

Good luck.
