Upset Stomach

  • Hi Everyone,

    I started BFL Mon. 7-19-10, I was constipated & bloated but now I'm just so bloated & this has been going on since Wed. the 21st. What can I do or use that will help me feel better? 

    Thanks,

  • I think plenty of water will help.  What have you been eating?  Bars will do this and drinking more than two shakes a day will as well.  Protein can cause this too but it's usually not as bad as the bars and shakes.

    Love you some you...PERSEVERE!

  • Eat a bit of fiber too.  I think some folks take fiber pills or something like that for the more immediate help.

  • Are you including veggies (roughage, like lettuce, spinach) to at least two of your meals?

  • Hi BDMom, Thanks for the reply. I believe I need to drink more water & add more roughage like you've suggested. I've mainly been getting my fiber through fruits. I'm beginning to journal how my body feels & I do think too much of the processed protein not only is one of the causes upsetting my stomach but  I believe it's been aggravating my sinuses as well.
