Nasty gas....
« on: December 26, 2016, 09:50:01 AM »
.... and constipation! Not sure why, but comes and goes. I've been doing Paleo over 2 years now. It appears that every few months or so things get "locked up" and I get horrible gas and some noticeable bloating. Usually this lasts a few days to a whole week. I eat lots of fresh/dried fruit throughout the day, never try anything strange or different.

Any ideas to prevent this, or at least treat it when it does happen?

I get small amounts of gas when I have fruit in any form other than fresh whole fruit  - not just dried fruit, but even apple sauce - though  I haven't had painful gas since I went paleo and cut out the potatoes.  You might try cutting out the dried fruit when things go bad, or even temporarily cutting all fruit for a day or two.

We're not talking small amounts.... this is full blown chemical warefare!

I think I may try fitting in a bit of white rice the next few days instead of the bajillion bananas I've been eating every day. Seems like I get carb-starved and immediately eat a banana... or an apple. Dates & raisins are another go-to for me.

You might consider replacing some of the carbs with animal fats.
