It may be too much fiber in the diet, although that is often intestinal bloat and not stomach bloat (but we all carry our bodies a little differently), especially if you have a little cramping or gas.  You may want to add some live cultures to your diet– certain brands of yoghurt, blue cheeses, miso, and so forth.

Kind of an extreme thought – but it could be a gluten sensitivity.

Try to go without it for a week and see if there’s a change.

Yes. I had an inflamed pancreas.

I would go to the doctor. This could be a medical issue. This was happening to me, and eventually it got so bad that no only was I bloating after every meal, but pain started accompanying it. Eventually, I went to the ER after one intense bloating/pain session, after a whole bunch of tests & an endoscopy, I found out I have celiacs. If I avoid gluten, no more pain, no more bloating. Well, almost, still happens during that time of the month.

@koi424:  This. I used to be constantly bloated/gassy/uncomfortable but since I got rid of gluten a couple of years ago it’s rare that I feel like that anymore.

I was always like this. I later had some allergy testing done and I found out I was having reactions to wheat, Beef, melons, and a ton of other things. I agree with PP, cut the wheat out and maybe see a doctor about food allergies/sensitivity.

The gluten free thing is catching on all over the place now, so while it’s difficult to do, it’s a heck of a lot easier than it was 10 years ago. My FSIL is sensitive to gluten and there are lots of accomodating restaurants if you just take the time to do some research. We even found a place where she can have great pizza and pasta!

If you put things like ‘gluten free diet’ or ‘guide to gluten free’ you’ll find lots of helpful websites.

Trying it out for a week won’t be so hard. Sticking with it in the long term is the hard part.

Ugh, the “Food Baby”. See an MD about it. If it IS a gluten allergy, there are loads of resources and websites to help with recipes and quick snacks to eat. Foodgawker.com is excellent for recipes that cater to folks with allergies. I use it all the time for my DH, who is severly lactose intolerant, and for our uncle, who is gluten-free.

I agree with other PPs that it could be celiac’s.  I go through something similar as does FI.  His mother has celiac’s (but no one if my family does) so we’ll be going gluten free after October. We’ll both get tested once he’s on my insurance.  I’m allways gassy, bloated, etc.  I had such horrible pain last night that I couldn’t lay down, sit, or even move.  Consult a doctor about your symptoms!  It may not be celiac’s, but it could be something else going on.

Yeah I was convinced that it was actually normal to have a food baby all the time. I stopped eating sugar, dairy and grains a few weeks ago. I stuck to that really well for about 3 weeks and then started eating that stuff again. Immediately I got gassy and bloated. I know for a fact that I am lactose intolerant but the grains are what make me feel really bloated. 

I would eliminate as much of the bad stuff and slowly introduce different things to see what makes the difference for you.

@kmarie719:  You should read Wheat Belly. It really made sense to me. Every time I was eating a wrap or wheat, I had the same reaction. It might be a sensitivity to the wheat you are eating in the morning and at lunch. Try replacing your bread products with whole, unprocessed foods (I use iceberg lettuce for a wrap these days) and you might notice a difference.
