  • Luckily I have never had any of these problems even in my care-free fat dumb and happy days. I guess I have a cast iron stomach. Losing the weight now and have changed the way I eat, (more beans for one) but none of these changes have caused any pains any more than my fat loving diet of yore.
  • Broadly speaking a change in diet can also do this in most people. A lot of people introduce extra vegetables for example, and then often don't allow their GI tract to get accustomed to the change.
  • it's broccoli and cauliflower that cause me distress. I never would've thought of inulin
  • Excellent need-to-know information. Thanks!
  • I have a problem with sulfites in some dried fruits and with inulin. That is great about rinsing beans. I am a vegetarian primarily and I eat a lot of beans; another way to cut down on the flatulence (fancy term for gas) and bloating is taking Bean-No tablets before eating ("Take Bean-No and they'll be no gas"), it's an enzyme that makes beans easier to digest. I find that that brand is expensive for not a lot of tablets, I buy a knock-off from Walmart online where you get 100 tablets for under 4 dollars. I eat a lot of beans!
  • Thank you for the information
  • Some foods really can affect me.
  • sugar alcohols are a huge no-no for me
  • Thank you for posting your sources!
  • Really good information contained in this article.
  • I am lactose intolerant. I'm not worried about it giving me gas, but if I eat anything more than a few tablespoons of anything dairy rich it is going to clean me out in about 35 to 45 mins. I know from experience to really limit my samples of dairy rich food. At least I have no desire for big servings of ice cream, custard, frozen custard or cheesecake to fight even though I do like occasional small servings!

    Sugar alcohols can be VICIOUS to your intestinal tract!!!

    Wheat makes me bloat :-(
  • "Don't believe me, you can find it on the internet."

    I love it. Reminds me of the commercial that says "they can't put anything on the internet if it isn't true."

    I'm not knocking what RFSLDS is saying. However, the burden of proof is on him/her to provide a link to a credible source to back what they're saying, not tell people to find it themselves.

    I do agree with RFSLDS that this article fails to mention gluten intolerance and celiac disease. My son was diagnosed with celiac in 2014. Prior to his diagnosis he was sick for months. His symptoms included stomach cramps and vomiting.
  • I am surprised no mention of wheat. Gluten intolerant? They use Roundup before harvesting our wheat here in the U.S. That way they get a larger harvest by drying out the wheat. Don't believe me, you can find it on the internet. That is why I think you see a higher rate of gluten intolerance showing up. Ten years ago you really did not hear anything about it. Now it seems like so many people that I know have a problem with it. When a doctor diagnosed my husband and my daughter for this, and they eliminated the wheat from their diet, the symptoms stopped. My daughter is so bad, she will have to spend hours in the bathroom if she doesn't stay away from it. To show you how our government is poisoning us by letting this go on, we had always heard you don't have the problem in Europe, where they don't want our wheat. We just returned from a trip to the UK and Europe and my daughter went crazy eating wheat products (which scared me at first). But low and behold, she had no problems the three weeks she was there. But when she returned home to the U.S., the first sandwich she had sent her to the bathroom. Go figure.
