Gas...

  1. Gas...




    I started eating clean again this week...and holy **** balls, I can't handle the amount of gas I have nowadays...

    I mean it is insane. I'm eating clean calories all day long, 2 protein shakes a day, CEE and BCAAs, and the diet actually looks like this:

    NonFat Yogurt/Granola
    Apple/Protein Shake
    Salad w/ Can of Tuna
    Apple/Protein Shake
    Chicken Breast/Steamed Veggie
    Almonds/Nonfat Cottage cheese

    I'm pushing about 3000 Kcals according to fitday.

    Drinking over 1.5gals a day plus a cup of coffee in the am and a cup of tea after lunch.

    I mean, I understand that gas is something we all have to deal with, but this is getting ungodly. Anyone see anything in there that would cause this ridiculous increase or is it jsut my body getting used to nothing but god food again?


  2. Usually for me whenever I start eating a high amount of protein I have an absurb amount of gas.

  3. You will more than likely experience gas your if diet suddenly jumps up in protein intake or fiber intake (or both for that matter). This can sometimes be avoided by slowly working your way up to the desired amounts...but what's the fun in that?

    yea, that makes sense...anything you guys use to combat this?

  5. Oats give me lots of gas... and BCAA's with them make it really rank. I found digestive enzymes really help out.

  6. is 200mg of test cyp. enough to make a big diff.

    Depends where you are shooting it.

    BTW, we have a new probiotic coming out that will GREATLY reduce gas, help digestion, and increase protein usage.

    What is this miraculous thing you speak of?

  10. Same thing happens to me... gas non-stop and 2-3 dumps per day... especially if I'm eating a lot of dairy and oatmeal... give it a few days or weeks... it goes away.

  11. It is a Lactic Acid Bacteria, called KE-99, and it helps with IBS, digestion, pathogen control, intestinal health, reduces ammonia and sulfides, and is shelf stable.

    There will be a full article coming in the next week or two, and the product will be released in around 4 weeks.

  12. Oh man, you've got my attention with that product! More money going to Nutraplanet

  13. Im all for the probiotic line of thought.I started using them about 2 months ago.The first week gas got worse and after that went down to almost nothing.Definately helped me out alot with digestion also.


    Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths . Proverbs 3:5-6

  14. gas isnt something we all have to live with,its a sign something is difestively wrong.now that can be minor or major.minor as in perhaps one or more of the foods in your diet is causing a little bit of gas and nothing more,major as in you could have some severe food allergies or be lacking in one or more digestive enzymes.could be u are lacking in an enzyme to digest fats,proteins,carbs or all of the above.not sure if they make an enzyme test of any sort to test for this or if its just trial and error.

    a quality probiotic goes along way(i prefer the special hso blend of primal defense as imo most regular pros are inferior by far)as does ginger.i would also recomend a full spectrum food allergy test

    Don't really agree with this. The body adjusts the conditions in the stomach to best digest the current diet. When the diet changes radically (as in the introduction of dramatically more protein or dairy), this can upset the stomach and cause gas for a few days or weeks as it adjusts. It doesn't mean something's wrong, it just means the body hasn't yet adjusted to the new diet.

    To take a mundane example, Taco Bell. If you haven't eaten similar food in a long time, Taco Bell can cause bad gas and stomach upset. Eat Taco Bell every day for a week, however, and after that 95% of people can digest it just fine with no upset. (Not that I recommend eating Taco Bell everyday, or ever.)

    Of course, as you say, sometimes the stomach might be lacking certain digestive enzymes needed for specific foods (e.g. dairy in the case of lactose intolerance), and in these cases avoiding those foods or taking digestive enzymes (e.g. lactase) can be helpful.

    But in most cases, the gas will diminish rather quickly as the body adjusts to the new diet. Probiotics can be helpful in some circumstances, but IMO they're overkill in most situations. Why take an additional supplement if you don't need it?

    All that said, if you have a severe reaction or painfully debilitating gas (yes, it does happen) for more than a day, then it is a good idea to see a doctor and possibly get food allergy or other tests. But generally if you have a severe food allergy, you know it right away. It's not like "Oh I have some gas", it's like "S**t I think I'm dying".

  16. This is going to be suspended in a high-anti Ox, Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

    I am particulary interested in the pathogen killing effects, as I think we are just beginning to see stronger strains invade the food supply (spinach anyone?)

    We should easily be able to retail this for under $20.

  17. Savage, I def. agree with you...Your body will adjust. I guess I'm for my GF...

    Dsade...that sounds good, I'm gonna head to google and read up a little about probiotics...let me know when you post that write up...

  18. Will do, PI

    I am anxious to see this one released, so this is on the front burner.
