1/25/13- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Monday

by Paula (Clean Eating Expert) 25. January 2013 14:37

 A reader named Bill, sent me an e-mail expressing frustration, trying to begin a clean eating diet and the side effects of it.  His feedback was that the ‘healthy foods’ were making him gassy and bloated.

Bill, a build up of gas in your digestive tract is normal, especially if your system is used to a diet of primarily processed and pre-packaged foods.  It is often caused by fruits and vegetables which contain complex starches, fiber and sugars (these are harder for the body to break down, but for the same reason, you feel fuller, longer).  Bacteria in the gut help to break these foods down, but gas is a by-product of this.

One way to alleviate this side effect of healthy eating is to introduce these foods slowly (par cooking vs. raw vegetables helps too), try over the counter products such as Beano.  The health benefits of eating a clean eating diet full of nutritious foods far outweigh the embarrassment of the gas!
