Okay- I'm going to be blunt.
I've had gas all day. Eating all this fruit is too much fiber. Will it ever go away? Are there any solutions?
Please Help... I have a feeling Raw may not be the way to go if i keep feeling like this. :mad:

Raw IS the way to go, don't give up. This is detox. I doubt there is such thing as "too much fiber" I eat LOADS of fruit and veggies and I don't have a problem. Your colon just has to clean out. Be patient and give it time.

Your body may take some time to adjust, but it will all even out. The key is patience.

You're going through an adjustment phase and most likely a detox. It takes time to adjust to an entirely different way of treating your body, even when it is the best thing you can do for yourself, as raw is. Trust me, you'll want to see this through. My detox and adjustment phase literally took 2 months but many others it takes as little as 2 weeks or anywhere in between and I'm sure that some people have had a detox that lasted longer than 2 months. Anyway, extreme patience and perseverance is the key. You'll be glowing with health soon.
In regards to the fiber issue, you are supposed to have tons of fiber in your diet, that is how we are built. We have long, complicated intestinal systems because we need tons of fiber to push things through efficiently. 100% raw veganism is the way we are meant to live, anything else is the real deviation.
Hang in there, you'll feel better soon.

I posted a similar thread last week about this. My problem went away this week. I'm not sure if it'll work for everyone, but I thought it's worth mentioning.
I did my very first liver cleanse this weekend. No more gas this week!!
It's pretty amazing since I was tooting up a storm last week.

I was bloated and full and gassy and on the potty for a good week after I started Raw. Even now, if I overeat something I will be gassy. But it will stabilize and go away.

Hang in there! Your body will adjust. In the meantime you might want to avoid vegetables that are notoriously hard to digest like broccoli, cauliflower, and denser greens like kale and collards. You also might want to do so basic food combining to improve your digestion--don't mix fruits with fats and eat melons by themselves and on an empty stomach.
All the best,

My experience with it:
If I stop snacking all the time and eat no more than 3 big meals a day consisting just of fresh fruits and vegetables(no salt, condiments, oil, dried stuff) - I am gas free.
If I keep eating the whole day and use dehydrated stuff - here comes the gas.
And I am raw for 8 months now, so it has nothing to do with adjustment for me. But it might be for you.

Oh Yeah Gas R Us hehe
It's getting better and do take the food combining advice :)
A small perk that after you are less toxic or cleaned the tooties don't smell :)
