bloating: from Jennifer on 2009-08-18

Hello everyone I started the food combining diet about week and a half ago and have been following just as the book "The complete book of food combining by Kathryn Marsden" tell me. I do have IBS the constipation kind and I am always bloated. Even though my stomach has settled down some since started to properly combine food my bloating has not went down at all. When I say I am bloated I mean I feel pregnant but I am not. Some days I go to the bathroom and other days I still struggle. I am eating more fruit and vegetables than I used to and I drink lots of water does anyone have any ideas why I am still bloated? Does it just take more time for your body to adjust to the increase in fiber or am I doing something wrong.



P.S. I am also lactose intolerant and avoid it whenever humanly possible.



Thanks

Jennifer

I also have the same exact problem. The doctor has just recently took me off all milk products because of the constant pain, gas, and bloating. It is really aggrivating not knowing what is causing the problem. I am 32 years old and still pretty active, so I don't understand what is the problem. If anyone has any advice as far as a diet or some exercises something that can be done with a ruptured and degenerative disc disease, I would really appreciate it.



Thank you Roxanne Meggs
