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)

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)

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?

Yup, switch some of the carbs/proteins for more fats. Things like coconut oil, avocado, grassfed butter, red palm oil, bacon, ribs, etc.

I eat stew every single day. I've tried a few times adding onions or garlic, and it always ended with stomach pain, so my advice is to get rid of the onions, garlic, and spices. I only add a bit of salt at the end and that works great.

"moderately paleo" doesn't tell us too much, we don't know what you're eating. It's likely what you can remove from your diet to help with the bloating, not what you can add. But we need to know what you're eating first.
