hey guys. i have been gluten free for almost 9 months now. the first 7 months i felt great, but for the past 2 months i have seemed to have hit a wall. i have been bloated every single day; totally flat in the morning and then as i eat i get bigger and bigger through out the day. i am assuming it is all due to bloating in my intestines, as i only get big below my belly button. i have been keeping a food diary for weeks now and i cannot find any correlations between my bloating and what i eat. the only thing i have found is that i get extremely bloated and gassy when i eat an apple (fructose malabsorption possibly).

i take digestive enzymes with every meal, a multi vitamin and magnesium every morning, culturelle probiotic in the afternoon, and a lactaid pill when i eat dairy.

long story short, i cannot deal with this constant bloating, and low self esteem because i look pregnant by the end of the day, much longer. just wondering if anyone else has similar experiences and what might help ease the bloating?

Perhaps avoid dairy and the lactaid. Perhaps your dairy intolerance is more serious than a lactaid can help???

I don't know too much yet, but I found I felt better when I ate no grain at all. I went through withdrawl when I cut out spelt and kamut. I went through a second withdrawl when I cut out rice and all grains. Also when I eat away from home I bloat or get hives.

When I saw the MD the other day she told me you look pregnant. Indeed, I did and futhermore people have asked me 2 or 3 times, if am, when I was not. My sister thought I looked pregnant at age 10, but she knew it wasn't possible. I can relate to the bloating-that's for sure. Once in a while, it has been a long time now; my tummy goes flat.

My substitutes for flour are beans, almond flour and coconut flour and I have really enjoyed my food.
