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.

Are you familiar with the FODMAP diet? Google knows far more about it than I ever could, but the gist of it is removing certain vegetables that have a tendency to cause bloating, gas, and the like. FODMAP stands for types of foods (mainly sugars)... (more)

If you get the stomach flu, what remedies do you use? Vitamin C? Apple Cider Vineger? Water? Rest? What works the best? Are there any quick reliefs you can get from any foods or supplements?

If you take activated charcoal, keep in mind it's going to strip EVERYTHING out of your system - good as well as bad. You're going to want to follow up with some high-quality probiotics or a ton of fermented foods - when you can hold them down,... (more)

Well, just my opinion! But is it possible that the coconut water could also be causing continued digestive distress? It can be brutal for some people. What I tend to do is eat bananas and potatoes, starchy stuff to try and calm my system. ... (more)

I would suspect stress/anxiety considering when the problem started. It could possibly also be the industrial seed oils the foods at school are cooked in or the fact that you are eating more raw veggies. But it's probably anxiety/stress. (more)

Does anyone know how long it takes for any extra calories to move from your stomach to adipose tissue? That is, how long after a meal can you be reasonably sure that it won't have any more of an affect on your visible body composition? (more)
