Weird. I am not sure what is going on... but I feel really bloated today and not with it.

I did not have gluten or dairy, so I know that is not it.

I had 2 egg, veggies for breakfast.
large salad with a can of tuna for lunch and then same thing for dinner. Lots of veggies.

Seriously, is it possible that I did not eat enough? I also did 2 hours at the gym last night. But I tried some grass fed beef and felt gross afterwards... I think I ate too late and then woke up feeling too full. Perhaps, it was not good for my digestive system.

You're getting almost no carbs and I don't think that's working for you.

Hmmm... that was today. Typically, I eat more carrots, peppers but I just felt shaky after eating alot of carbs.

I need balance, though. I could have bought some fruit, but we know how that goes.

I don't do well with canned tuna and don't know why as it's a neutral on the BTD and I make sure the ingredients are only tuna, water, and salt.  I don't know if I get bloated but I do feel icky.  Canned chicken too but not as bad.

I would think in a different direction than fruit.  How about vegetables, such as jerusalem artichoke, parsnip, pumpkin, rutabaga, sweet potato, turnip, string beans or peas?

Then, there are garbanzo beans, great northern beans, lima beans, pine nuts, sesame butter (tahini), and sesame seeds, flax and chia seeds, almond butter.

These are all from the Superfood and Diamond categories in the Genotype book and could help you balance your diet of protein and salad.

TOO MANY veggies cause trouble for me. I do very well with very few carbs and I definately eat my veggies but too many or TOO BIG of a meal never works. That's why I eat evry 3.5-4 hours 3-4x a day but they are smaller meals, like an appetizer plate and chewing your veggies alot is also very important for me.But that's just me..

Interesting. Thanks for the feedback. I wonder about the tuna now... I have only been eating the kind with no soy, just tuna, water. However, seems like I am not doing too well on digesting it. On the other hand, I am eating more veggies than before, so it might need time to adjust.

V- thanks for the thoughts. Beans are not good for me at all! This much I know.

However, the parsnips, artichokes, chia seeds, more broccoli might help.

Policy- I drink like 3-4 liters of water a day. No way can I be dehyrated!!!

Good point. I am considering buying a ninja chopper so I make sure my veggies are being digested properly.

Little meals work for me as well or at least moderate size!

PC's post said retaining water, which is different than being dehydrated, but...

Quoted from marjorie

This isn't entirely true...  If the electrolyte (sodium / potassium) balance is off, you may not be using the water you are drinking, therefore, you MAY be dehydrated at a cellular level.  

I get this way if I don't drink grapefruit juice on hot days.  I can drink water but still feel parched, but once I drink some grapefruit juice, I start utilizing the water I drank and feel much better.

There are several reasons to retain water...  

Again, it can be related to sodium / potassium balance, but also may be that the kidneys are sluggish at the time...  
It may be that your diet is changing and the gut hasn't caught up with all of the changes, etc...

I can't tell from this far away...  .

Right. I think it is more about me letting my body catch up ot the changes. Also, I need to work on being mindful that what worked for me 8 years ago when I started this lifetsyle, may not work now.

What I do know: low/moderate carb works best for me
Chick doesnt sit well at all. Fish and grass fed beef sparingly seem to be ok

It appears my portions need to be reduced but not too much. It is all about balance.

I was grain free ( celiac) for so long, but lately I might need some rice or quinoa? Hmm...

Well, I would take a trip to CA in a heartbeat!! but school is number one....lol.. That being said, once I graduate, I am off to San Diego!

Few agree I'm afraid but I think 3-4 litres of water is way too much.

assuming you eat fruit and veg and decent food, which it sounds like you are. I would only drink 3-4 glasses of water and that would include green tea, and my glass of water with lemon in the morning.

one of my meals everyday is a soup of some kind also.


perhaps you could try drinking less for a few days and see how you feel.

the recommended amount of water required by the average human body is only 56 oz or something like that and includes water from food, veg, meat fruit etc. example meat is around 50 % water.

it's in the Merck manual....

I agree PC, too much water always bloats me, especially cold water. I sip room temp or warma all day. Some of my worst days were trying to chug all that water. Drinking with meals too...

It's my understanding that too much water can also dilute your digestive processes, causing bloating (among other problems). Or is this only an issue for A's and AB's?

Too much water severely dilutes the digestive enzymes, making digestion very inefficient.

Ok, so I think I have the point now, people! Ease up on the water.

This is going to be an issue because I am addicted to it in many ways... I use as a tool to not eat as much. Hmm..

Definately trouble, try sipping room temp and not salmming it, that could be huge for you

Sounds like a gut flora issue-- a breath hydrogen test might be a good idea.

I had bloating and I burped after everything I ate. My ND said it could be yeast overgrowth and she recommended taking caprylic acid and no sweets nor high carbs for a month as a test, because sugar feeds yeast. It's been working. No more bloating nor burping.

D.L.,
certainly a good point, especially if she has low acid fron veg/vegan days

Andrea,
.I don't know anyone who can eat unlimited quantities of whatever they want without issue no matter what their 'gut flora' is. I understand gut flora can be a big issue but there certainlyare many other things that can cause bloating, such as too much liquid, wrong foods, too much food and the list is endless. Gut flora could be an issue for Marjorie but we know that can't be fixede over night so I'm thinking there are many things she can try that will help overnight.....
just my thoughts

Gut flora first-- then you can deal with the other issues if you want--   Might be a case of things dying off that cause the bloating as she eats more veggies-- time will tell.

Gut flora is the underlying issue here. Going round and round will not help her but if she fixes the flora-- aaaahhh now she will feel better.

it is Ok I understand the need to try a  load of things, but many of them can make people more obsessed and crazy over everything they ingest.




I understand you all think every time someone has a problem Lola and I scream " gut flora" ( kinda like saying fire)  I know but I do love you all so much that I want you to have healthy guts and feel so much better
