Gas-which foods?

Posted by Red Sun [3077.566] on January 29, 2005 at 21:49:20:

Hi! I hope that I can word this question to make sense...If one has
gas over a several hour period, which "meal" could that have come
from? In other words, how long would it take for a certain food to
begin digesting and start causing gas? For instance, if I have had
gas from noon today until evening, was it probably from lunch,
from breakfast or from dinner the night before? I had nothing out of
the ordinary for breakfast and lunch, but bad gas all day...I guess
this is just a biology/transit question...

I think to a certain extent the time period may not be completely telling.

For one thing, I find that depending upon how frequently I eat a particular thing and/or how varied my diet has been, I might become more flatulent sooner or later. However, I can usually attribute it to something in particular. I hope that makes sense. If not let me know.

Additionally, if I have been exercising regularly I become mroe flatulent very quickly. Or I become flatulent upon beginning exercise.

Again, drinks that stimulate digestion also stimulate flatulence from previous meals sometimes. Coffee, carbonated drinks such as soda or sparkling water, beer, etc. all can have this effect.

Finally, certain medical problems, conditions or states can contribute to flatulence. Women tend to have more digestive woes such as flatulence and diarrhea during menstruation for instance. Certain medical problems like Meckel's diverticulum or diverticulosis come with flatulence that may be speeded on by the condition. The list goes on

With that being said, I don't want to come across as an incredibly gaseous person because I do not have THAT bad a problem.

The point is that everyone is different for many and varied reasons and I doubt that such a prediction as you are looking for can be accurately made.

Hi, Red.

Listen to P.

Go to the drugstore and ask the pharmacist for a few charcoal tablets. Take them home and swallow them. Mark the time on the calendar and start checking your stool for a section of black. Mark the time on the calendar when that happens. This is your "transit time".

Let us know what that time is.

Walt

Thanks P.
I find that I get gassy when I exercise too. How strange. Anyway, I
am keeping a food diary right now on my candida diet, and was
just thinking I could look back and figure out what would have
been the possible culprit. Guess it's just not that easy. I will try to
figure out my transit time as Dr. Stoll suggested. Thanks for the
advice.

I take the Charcoal tab. once in awhile to help with gas, but that is a good idea Walt, thanks;
Now some people eat a lot of soy-like soy milk-soy beans-tofu-soy cheese ect. and it can cause a lot of gas;
We eat a lot of beans and eat them every day, it is our main protein now, besides sushi once a week, and sprouting the beans and soaking them helps.
I've always heard as long as the gas comes out easy [no pain in the intestines]and is not foul, don't worry about it; If it is foul then the colon is not eliminating well or often enough;
Yes one having Candida can really have gas often also;
