  • Belly bloat is often caused by FODMAPs which are sugars that the small intestine doesn't digest and absorb. When these sugars reach the large intestine, they are used by bacteria for food. This causes the release of gas in the large intestine. Some people have an overgrowth of bacteria in their small intestine too. Read IBS: Free at Last! by Patsy Catsos, RD.

    Often the foods on the "healthy list" are the worst offenders when it comes to FODMAPs and IBS! - 2/11/2014 8:05:20 AM
  • There's a lot more to it than what's stated here. Read the book "GAPS. gut and Psychology Syndrome" by Dr Natasha Campbell-McBride, MD. If you follow the suggested info listed in your article you may be making matters worse. I know. I have a client suffering from this and it was diagnosed as everything BUT her severe issue of leaky gut. Doctors told her that ther was "no such thing" or wouldn't even look at her blood analysis results! - 2/11/2014 4:15:46 AM

  • The times when I have had the most gastrointestinal discomfort and pain, I've noticed are after I've gone through long periods of time between meals (point #2 -if I've been chewing gum during that period, it is definitely worse) and after eating large quantities of fresh garlic.

    I've had a sensitivity to garlic ever since my first pregnancy. I couldn't even stand the smell of garlic when I was pregnant. I love it again now, but have to be careful with how much I eat. - 1/10/2014 11:01:41 AM
  • I'm part of the "gotta eat healthier" group the article mentions in the beginning and am definitely experiencing some bloat and general gasiness! It's not too uncomfortable, but I'm hoping it goes away soon! - 1/10/2014 9:15:16 AM
