Anyone suffer from ridiculous bloating?

cattywcattyw Posts: 22Member Member Posts: 22Member Member
I’ve had various tests and told it’s probably IBS. No matter what I eat I get so bloated at the end of the day. Right from the top of my rib cage to my lower stomach. I look about 4 months pregnant! Anyone else suffer and know what’s causing it? Just waiting to see a dietician to see what I may have to eliminate 😩

    How much water do you drink in a day and whats your sodium and dairy consumption?

    Me to I look lean in the morning like 12% bf and by the end of the day I look like 20% bf. It’s always been like this for me but never looked into it just figure must have something to do with maybe to much sodium or something idk

    I’m the same way. Flat in the morning and after a few good meals third trimester. Food babies are real - especially noticeable during a bulk.

    I get this often..... I find that drinking something like yakult (sp) or a really quality brand of probiotics help.

    A friend of mine who had IBS symptoms all his life was recently subjected to breath tests to determine which FODMAPS he was unable to digest. These are different types of sugars that some people aren't able to digest. The tests pinpointed that he was unable to digest the sugars in garlic and onions. Since he cut these out of his diet he has been symptom free.

    Google FODMAPS and talk to your doctor. It is a lesser known condition.

    I often look pregnant at the end of the day. I just eat a lot of fruit and veg. I’m not bothered by it as I have no digestive problems or discomfort it’s just normal for me. I think if you are reasonably lean then the stomach can appear bloated after a main meal.

    I look very bloated after exercise. I think it's because muscle retains water or something but idk.

    Since I lowered my carbs to near non existent I haven’t felt bloated ever.

    I got good from results from lowering my carbs as well. I don't do keto or low carb per se. I just make sure my macros are balanced and my fiber isn't too high.

    Ha funny you say this. I live with the bloat, as I want to be fuller for longer so I don’t snack on my quarantine snacks 😂😂 also it always disappears in the morning. Go from preggo to slim to preggo everyday 👍

    I will pretend this happened to me after my ab workout. But I think there’s some truth to this. Think about the pump in a bicep after curls.

    OP, is this really problematic if it happens when you just go to bed?? Coming from a non-party-er 😅😊

    Same here. Think it's a common issue that a lot of people have. Not advice but take comfort in knowing you're not on your own.😊
