Start by saying I've been lurking on the forums and following stuff as well as the primal/paleo figureheads for years now. Ready to come semi out of the shadows and get all personal about my health as I've hit a wall. Follow a very strict... (more)
Definitely do try the ghee/butter replacement. I'd recommend following a paleo autoimmune protocol if you're having a lot of problems with it. There's a lot of good books out there on paleo autoimmune protocols if you're not familiar with it.... (more)

I was having a lot of bloating that I couldn't quite understand considering I eat a pretty clean paleo diet. Part of me thought for a while that it could be the eggs but I didn't want to admit it to myself considering I already limit dairy and... (more)
Duck eggs are more easily digestible than chicken eggs and haven't been through the history of genetic modification like most all chickens. I say go for it if you have access to duck eggs.
I used to be realy gassy, bloated and constipated before paleo, but there was a period when it all stopped. With no mayor changes in my diet, the symptoms are back again. I've also gained some weight. I get this uncontrollable hunger sometimes,... (more)
Been having terrible stomach bloat pain lately. Before you say it ;) I've got a doctors appointment next week & have already started avoiding FODMAP (fructose malabsorption seems possible) in the meantime, among other things, so far I think... (more)
This one is for my hubby. He's been paleo for a year. On Saturday night, we had dinner where nothing was out of the normal except a "paleo-freindly" italian cheesecake his mom made. He proceeded to eat nearly half of it. The next day he woke... (more)
Hi everyone :) I am new to Paleo, and having researched for quite a while felt quite equipped to start. I am cooking in coconut oil, having chicken, fish, red meat (all organic/wild/grass fed etc) and organic veggies I know the drill with adding... (more)
I have IBS with bloating and cramping as the major symptoms. I did a hydrogen breath test for SIBO many years ago which came back negative. Last year my naturopath ordered a comprehensive stool parasitology, which showed no dysbiosis. I... (more)
Hi! I'm new to paleo, and follow its dietary guidelines simply because that's how i want to eat (i'm not trying to diet or anything). i still eat steel cut oats on occasion, but pretty much stay away from everything else. this is my second time... (more)
Hey!! I am paleo for s month now, but got a very bad Pms, birthday and was curious how other foods will affect me. So I decided to eat bread (I live in Germany and here is the best bread on Earth!). I ate. A lot. The next day I was double:... (more)
Hey everyone, I wanted some personal anecdotes. There are many times I feel bloated and uncomfortable after eating. I used to relate it to overeating. However, lately I've been experimenting with grass-fed meats and higher quality dairy... (more)
Yes. Steamed cabbage is a guaranteed bloat for me. Don't steam it, cooked the crap out of it in a soup, cut it in half and roast it in the oven, or pickle it like sauerkraut.
Personally I don't do well on low carb but my body is very sensitive to grains/legumes. I bloat immediately. Wonder how many other people do higher carb? And what carbs you have? I eat lots of bananas & sweet potatoes!
Hi, Another post from me on bloating. What could possibly cause bloating from drinking water? Been fasting all day, the first thing to enter my mouth was a litre of room temperature salted water and this caused me to bloat massively?? It... (more)
Hi, Every time I eat no matter what food (even plain room temp water) I bloat out a lot (pregnant looking), Heart beat gets very strong (palpitations), and I get very tired. I am generally very fatigued and have had to quit all exercise because... (more)
I'm started supplementing with 2x200mg a day of magnesium bisglycinate after reading wonders about it. After about a week I noticed I got quite a swollen and bloated abdomen. I checked the net and found that magnesium pulls water into the colon... (more)
Are you fasting in some form? Why not?! Look, I keep seeing the same thing over and over and over again on here: 1) Im not losing weight (anymore) and doing perfect Paleo & 2) Im doing perfect Paleo and have horrible ... (more)
Main benefit of fasting - learning that almost all those feelings from the stomach I used to fix by eating actually resolve themselves better without food being dumped in there.
Thanks to the delicious variety of cauliflower at the farmer's market -- purple, white, Romanesque -- I've been eating it every morning for breakfast for weeks along with animal protein and sometimes fruit. Lately, my abdomen looks seriously... (more)
Currently I am suffering from a severely bloated stomach. About a month ago I was diagnosed with a cyst the size of an orange on an ovarian remnant. I am assuming it is growing which is causing my problem but wondered if my diet was exacerbating... (more)
many soft fruits like pears, apples, and peaches are high in fructose which can be bloating. maybe stick to citrus or berries. and if you must do cheese on your eggs, choose a lactose-free one like swiss.
