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 have been Paleo for 2 years and had great Success. Paleo for me means: No Dairy No Legumes No Grains / White Flour No Un-Natural Sugars I have had great success in terms of weigh loss and significant decrease in... (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)
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)
Google fodmaps. As well, you've just made a big dietary shift. If instead of wheat bread you're eating fibrous veg, your microbiome probably won't be particularly well-adjusted to your new diet. Experiment, be patient. Perhaps look at some of the... (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)
My face gets bigger too! I gain pounds overnight!! Stupid me kept pushing it, I would eat clean, de bloat and then 'treat', myself to pizza and bloat again. Since last year I hadn't gain so much weight I hate it. It's a viscous circle. I go gluten... (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)
Omg this happened to me today . I ate so much cauliflower that after an hour or so my tummy got really bloated and I was getting these uncomfortable stomach aches.
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)
