Hi Able, I was just reading your response on an older post and was trying to find you and here you are on mine. : )I am following the diet from this forum website. I was just reading your post about too much chicken and red meat. I was a vegetarian before this (well, flexitarian is more accurate bc I would eat meat once in awhile, but rarely). So here I am now eating chicken, beef, fish etc along with millet, quinoa, brown and wild rice. Mostly green veg and 2 servings of berries, apples or pears (this is from my naturopath, I am not sure if fruit is allowed as per forum diet). Today I ate my veggie shake (kale, spinach, cucumber), chicken stir fry (no carbs just cauliflower, peppers, garlic and onion), pecans, and for dinner wild canned salmon, more cauliflower, green beans and millet. THen I had brown rice cakes with avocado. The bloat happened before the brown rice cakes. Any advice or do you need more info? I would love to cut down on my meat and poultry consumption! I was doing really well. This bloat is within the last week. I have been on this diet since May 6th. May 26th I ran the marathon and took the gels. May 27th I was back on diet again and have been following since then.
Thanks for reading and responding.
Oh, one thing I thought about is I was always buying organic meat until a few weeks ago when I had to cut back on some costs. Not sure if that would be causing the flare up? It seems to happen pretty suddenly and it’s pretty disturbing because it bloats right up like a balloon!
