Stinky Gas

Recommended Posts

Okay. I'm usually no more or less farty than the next person. But lately, I've been an unstoppable machine of farting. Perhaps it is the global energy crisis - I'm subconsciously trying out methane as a form of propulsion (so far I have not been knocked far enough to make it worth exploration). Okay...so I'm making noises...but it is the SMELL that is making me crazy!

So, what has changed in my diet? And here's where I hope to hear comments on what might cause stinky gas.....

1) Amaranth. A seed, not a grain. Eat lots of it. Makes me regular.

2) Pacific Vanilla almond milk. Need something to make the amaranth taste good. Have eaten in quantity before.

3) Tahini. I'm into tahini salad dressings right now. Prior to that I'd only eat this in humus, and only rarely

Honestly, these are the changed items. I feel so good in virtually every way right now - so it is disturbing that I am going around stenching up the planet. Any advice?

Oh yes, I have been taking probiotics when I think of it to help, but can't see every single day.

Don't eat:

grains

beans

dairy

soy

dried fruit

fruit for the most part (had a pear the other day - yum)

brocoli type veggies for the most part

just quit cashews because I read they can cause gas (and are a bean, when I thought they were a seed...insights?)

dead animals for the most part (rarely a 1/2 piece uncured bacon or some buffalo jerkey or something)

Do eat:

salads (lots of them)

tomatoes

avocados

onions

sometimes sweet potato (not too much lately)

Wow. I'm not eating a very varied diet right now. Anyway, please advise. Thanks so much.

It may be the amaranth, seeds give me a problem if I have too much. did you check the almond milk for soy? I've bene having a problem finding a brand w/o it b/c soy gives me gas also.

I always thought that broccolli, brussle sprouts and other veggy's were giving me gas, but when I went gluten free I found it really was the gluten this whol time causeing the prob. I can eat all the broccoli I want now, no problem. The only thing that has been giving me a stinky gas problem is Quinou and potatoes and if I have too much dairy, but still not as bad as a glutening...enough to make me second think about eating it :lol:

Ive noticed I am soooo much less gassy on gluten-free and when I do it isnt so stinky like before.

Anytime you take a pro-biotic it changes your intestinal flora. It could be that randomly taking them is disrupting things a bit and causing the gas.


GLUTEN FREE 4/4/08. LEGUME/SOY FREE 5/15/08. YEAST FREE. CORN FREE. GRAIN FREE. DAIRY FREE. I am eating all meats, eggs, veggies, fruits, squash, nuts and seeds. I just keep getting better every day. :)

Okay. I think I'll change the sesame first, since I really appreciate the calories from the amaranth. If that no worky, it is likely the amaranth. Really, I"ve been eating it every day, so it could well be the problem.

I wonder how lectin-y amaranth and sesame are. I have troubles with most lectins, but do alright with walnuts and almonds, but not almond butter or walnut butter in any quantity.

No sesame for one week! (boo hoo)

Cashews?? Cause gas??? I'm amazed at my own inability to sort my symptoms by dietary changes. Yes, I have had lots more smelly gas the last week or so. I thought it was eating more veggies, but I'm also almost halfway down the Costco jar of cashews! Sorry, family.

Well, I don't know about the lectins in various grains, but teff is another one high in protein and fiber (there is ivory teff if you don't like the brown one). Also, green peas are quite high in both fiber and protein as well. A few bowls of pea soup could literally put your daily intake above the RDI.

There's chia seeds, in case you haven't tried those (don't be fooled by ads, as both white and black chia are practically identical in most nutrients). If it was only a food fiber you wanted, coconut is loaded with it.

Yes--cashews! I get really bad gas from cashews, although I shouldn't be surprised since I'm intolerant to legumes.....

Bully--I'll betcha it's the tahini ;)

The tahini, avocado, and cashews are very high in fat content. Are you use to eating fats? I cant since I went gluten free.

I seem good with the fats, for the most part. The stench-fest literally started about the same time I hit the jar of tahini and found amaranth. I don't want it to be the amaranth since I finally have a breakfast I like. I don't want it to be the tahini cause I'm hot for my new salad dressings.

But I will admit this - I think about the tahini like while I'm sleeping...I crave it. That's probably not a good sign. I'm going to quit them both I think for a week and quit farting. Then add one back; then the other. I hate to quit either of them, but I suppose this makes the most sense.

I guess I'll go back to my raw buckwheat "oatmeal" for breakfast every other day (too heavy for every day) and lord knows what...avocado soup maybe...maybe for the others. Any ideas?
