I’m now 16 days into the BSD and to my surprise doing really well. I’ve lost 9lbs (4kg) and cut out sugar and really dialled back on carbs: no rice, no pasta, no noodles, no bread, and for the past few days (not deliberately) no beans or lentils. I have never really had a problematic gut or any intolerances.
So for the past 2 or 3 days I’ve had horrendous bloating and painful wind. I am eating plenty of fibre in the form of veg. I’m drinking plenty (and making the effort to drink more). But I’m feeling constipated (not actually constipated) and very uncomfortable. It’s not shifting and I wondered if anyone knows what could be causing it? At first I thought I’d eaten something bad, but nobody else in the family has had similar. Is this part of the process in some way?
