View Full Version : When does the gas stop?
02-12-2007, 11:35 AM
:eek: I have had terrible gas since going raw. How long will this probably last for? I've been 100% raw for about 2 weeks with one mess up when I ate 1/4 of a grilled veggie burrito but other than that I've had no cooked food. But this gas problem is driving me (and my partner :eek: ) NUTS!!! Not to be gross but it's not smelly, just continuously "escaping". Kind of embarrassing, not to mention the icky feeling in my stomach. I'm having very regular BM's each day which is a wonderful positive of being raw as I used to get constipated all of the time. So, anyway...........any suggestions would be appreciated. :D

2 weeks? Give it some time. It will subside. Your body is detoxing. How many years a SAD eater were you?
Congrads on your 2 weeks btw!!!
Drink lots of water. Just let 'em rip!!! (the gas that is)

You guts are clearing out. This is normal and good sign.
Reminds me of when I went on the McDougall diet which also includes lots of fruit and veggies. We used to call it the McBUGLE diet! roflol!
hang in there....

I've been SAD for 42 years.........not as SAD as the average person since I've always had lots of fruits, veggies, and very little meat.........but what I ate was still SAD and dead as it was all cooked .............
So, tell me that doesn't mean it will take 42 years to get rid of this gas! :D ha ha!!! Okay, so it's normal and I will rejoice in my bugle butt as it announces the arrival of a clean fresh exhaust system!!!
