    Fiber One bars will usually fix any gas issues you may have. Seriously, eat two for lunch. ;)

    Well played...

    Hazard of a high protein diet. My boyfriend is like, OMG STOP! But then I tell him that's how I show my affection and not to resist my methane cuddles. Then I give him a romantic dutch oven and slap him on the *kitten*.

    OMG, I burst out laughing...so funny!

    My husband's work has Fiber Fridays, someone brings in a super big box of Fiber Ones from Sam's and they share their farts with everyone on the loud speaker.

    I thought that was the reason we ate so much protein. Am I missing something?

    Does anyone know how to reduce the potency of this legendary gas?

    The best way is probably to just keep pounding down the protein, even increase it a little. Eventually, once your kidneys fail, you won't have to worry about the gas any more. Easy.

    LIGHT A MATCH


    Almost lost my 8th glass of water out of my nose on this one....NOW I know I'm tired and going to bed as this struck me incredibly funny. Have a good night all and tomorrow is another day to work on your goals.

    You're taking more protein than your body can process.
    Either reduce protein intake, or take additional nutrition to increase your body's capacity to take in / metabolize protein.

    Alternatively, you can take ProBiotic yoghurt, they will not increase your protein intake, however they might help reduce the effects somewhat, by breaking down remaining protein/energy in the waste.

    You could also try to find protein drinks with less sugar. An overconsumption of sugar also leads to gastritits, and could make your farts more smelly.

    This got me giggling, mostly because I've been there. I suffer with digestive issues, always have, always will. One thing that I found helps with gas, bloating and general abdominal discomfort it probiotics. I take it with breakfast and feel great all day.
