Sounds like you're facing a fermentation problem. Undigested food is remaining too long within your intestinal tract, and the residue allows bacteria to create gas (which is often putrid). I have noticed a huge reduction in flatulence after... (more)

lol OJ gives me mouth ulcers and probably cavities. Not really sure how Ray Peat arrived to that conclusion. Oh yeah, as he admitted, he recommends stuff that he personally enjoys taste-wise.

Hey all, I've been paleo over a year now, no grains, legumes, dairy, the only sugar is a little fruit like bananas or yams no more than once a day, many times skipping a day. I eat either raw spinach or cooked collard greens once a day too. I... (more)

Both coconut milk yogurt (coconut milk usually contains guar gum, the yogurt types almost certainly do, and coconut itself may cause some people distress) and sauerkraut (cabbage, contains raffinose) are potent FODMAP foods. Fermenting foods such... (more)

Always fun talking about farts, isn't it? ;) My farts before paleo were so acidicifying or otherwise 'toxic' that it did something with my skin, it became irritable, itchy, painfull etc. My docter was a bit in a hurry when I asked about it, so he... (more)

Anything that can be fermented in the gut will produce flatulence. You might want to look up FODMAP on wikipedia and see which of the food categories affect you. Probably everyone has some measure of sensitivity to FODMAPs. However if you are... (more)

I had to take a round of antibiotics (cipro) for a very nasty bladder infection. I took a ton of probiotics during and for few days after. have kept up with yogurt and kombucha since then. despite this I have had pretty much constant gas... (more)

It takes a while to repopulate to the correct BALANCE of gut flora. Too much good can be as bad as too much bad.

Is it weird that I don't fart anymore? No, I don't burp either and its not like I have a feeling I have to but I can't. I feel completely fine. I have farted one time so far and that was when the food I ate contained something I usually don't eat... (more)

I know. Weird question. I've noticed when I stick to eating healthy, farts rarely come, and when they do, they don't smell bad. On the other hand, when I cheat or eat something with multiple ingredients I normally don't eat, farts come more... (more)

My husband used to have nuclear farts. Cadaver farts. Devil farts. Make-me-furious-in-the-movie- theater farts. Since paleo 2+ years: his farts are mellow, mild, and acceptable. :) Ting!

Can you tell what type of gut flora you have by fart smell? And can you change the smell of farts?

Well if it actually has a smell there are most likely sulfur compounds involved. Sulfur is present in amino acids, therefore there must be some reason why the body doesn't digest all of it's precious protein (however, the gut bacteria definitely... (more)

My farts and burps have disappeared on this diet. Is it the same for cows?

Yes, grass fed cows produce less methane. It has something to do with their omega-3/6 ratio, so they're even trying to give cows in CAFOs fish oil. See for example... (more)

Just like the title says, I have solid, regular bowel movements every day. The only caveat though is wretched farts. After probably 1/3 of my meals, I have some pretty bad farts. What gives? If it was a specific food or type of food causing... (more)

Really, this is a matter of personal digestion. I can't eat nuts. They give me really horrible heartburn -- it took a while to figure it out, especially because while I was on a diet with grains, I also had horribly heartburn -- I took away the... (more)
