How much beans are you eating? I think I normally eat 2 cups (cooked) each day- maybe 3 sometimes. This would amount to from 1 to 1-and-a-half cups, dry, before soaking, rinsing, and cooking. Beans can be embarrassingly gassy, yes (I speak from experience- sometimes I get up and leave a room when I feel it coming on), but gas has never kept me awake.
My diet does include a lot of fiber (vegetables and fruits- especially leafy vegetables). It's also quite grain-heavy, although I eat refined grains (white bread or white rice) about as often as whole-grain.
A thought: after soaking your beans, do you discard the soaking water and then rinse them?
