Woofie Thanks, everyone, your replies have ALL been very helpful; a few times I've doubled over in laughter as well!

luvourmother Lots of reasons why this happens. Some ways to make it bettet is to drink enough water. Also pineapple and papaya have natural digestive enzymes, try eating these after u eat or as part of your regular diet.
Are u eating dried beans? They need to be soaked, the longer the better.

Damn straight! I try not to do it around others, though, since the smell is offensive. Otherwise, I am loud and proud.

LoopyVegan I've been vegan for a couple of years or so and I still fart like crazy. I guess some people fart more than others? Thankfully I have a very fart-accepting vegan boyfriend! Probably because he farts all the time himself. And his DO smell like the apocalypse.

sequoia During my first few weeks as a vegan I had pretty bad stomachaches and gas. Then it went away.

izjustagirl Farting is just part of veggie life!

I read a question years ago in a forum that said "why do vegetarian farts smell like the apocalypse". LOL
Be weary of Beano if it is in your contains shellfish!

Clueless Git I have been told that when this happens it is because the bowel 'flora'n'fauna' have not yet adjusted to a diet higher in complex carbs.

AdamLayish It happened to me. I was farting nonstop lol. I lasted like 2 weeks, then went away

Woofie Since becoming vegan I'm experiencing more flatulence than usual; this is probably because of all the plant-based foods I'm eating (like beans, broccoli, etc.)
Is this normal, and/or healthy? Is there any way I can reduce the gas buildup??
Sorry for being so informative; but it's really bothering me...
