Have you tried cutting out gluten or dairy? Those are common culprits for bloat. Also things like beer, beans, even broccoli.

I would recommend keeping a food diary. Write down everything you eat, then your symptoms and how long they last. Then you might start to see trends.

@Stace126:  Are you eating a lot of sodium? How is your blood pressure?

If you don’t mind me asking, how old are you , any history of menstrual irregularities , ovarian cysts ? I would try to drink at least  4 liters of water a day, add fresh lemon (helps w bloating) and avoid any processed foods (and other high sodium foods)

I agree with cutting out gluten and maybe dairy and see how you feel.

sounds like a gluten reaction.. Back before I went GF I would avoid eating for this ver reason – not only did it look horrible, but bloat like that is PAINFUL… Ever since I cut out gluten my stomach is flat as a door.. Unless I get glutened – if that happens I know within an hour that I’m in trouble.

my opinion is that you should consult a physician though..,

Happens to me every day too. I tried cutting out gluten and it didn’t help. I have IBS-like symptoms and I eat a TON of fiber, so I attribute it to that. I don’t think there’s much that can be done other than taking Beano or anti-gas medication, but I don’t want to take it every day. I just try to avoid really fiberous foods if I am going out or something.

I second the lemon water suggestion, but if you do it, please use a straw. I drink lemon water regularly, and if I don’t use a straw for awhile my teeth get super sensitive to hot/cold. I’ve never had sensitive teeth before, either! Just a warning. 🙂 I’m lactose intolerant, so I avoid dairy, but you might want to try avoiding gluten and uncooked cruciferous veggies, and alcohol, especially wine, for some reason. All those make me bloat, especially when eaten before bed time. If you switched your birth control recently, it might be that. One year, I had a pill I was on give me crazy bloat, which for whatever reason went almost unnoticed until summer. My sister had a bc give her crazy bloat as well.
