    Gas is most likely from you body adjusting to this higher fiber/protein diet. It should pass as your body adjusts to it. If you are hungry I found it helpful to eat higher protein foods for my PowerFuels, such as tuna and Greek yogurt which has double the protein as regular yogurt.
    Good Luck!! We can do it!!

    I have heard that a tablespoon of caraway seeds also help. Mix them in a food, do not chew up as you normally would eat seeds or nuts. Caraway seeds are in rye bread, in case you did not know. Good luck and lose much.

    I had the same issue and was told that the high fiber diet is to blame along with some of NS foods having sugar alcohol and was emailed a list of foods to avoid for a short time to see if that helps:

    Try Gas-X. That seems to help lots of folks on here.

    *snorts* Thanks to gastric bypass I have to contend with MAJOR gas, and a much more....um.....delicate odor. I also have a nasty sour milk taste in my mouth that has put me off milk and their substitutes.

    I had a hella bad tummy the last few weeks from some of the food, but am much better now. My hubby is getting the gas side, tho.

    None of the anti-gas measures work for me sadly. The man thing was in the Army for 26 years years, so he loves me anyway. I can imagine what "odors" he has had to endure, so a rose scented wife just makes him laugh.

    Thanks everybody for the suggestions! I guess I am going to have to endure this for a while but I took a walk earlier and that seemed to help a little.

    I've read (One of Dr. Furhman's books) that it can be helpful to chew food longer. His advice pertains to vegetyables so I am not sure how helpful it is for gas issues from the non-veggie parts of the diet.

    The gas will pass. I had it for the first 2 weeks really bad but now my body has adjusted to the food and the gas is gone......
