High. Converted to Veganism ( I do the best I can ) last week. I have already loved a lot of the best sorts of food for this, so it really hasn't been that hard for me, even though I was a serious meat eater. My problem - GAS! I have never had this kind of gas before. I am used to eating edamame, tofu, beans, brocolli, etc with absolutely no problems, and now I am worse than cattle.

Someone told me that this will subside in a month or two. I hope so.....got any ideas?

I eat lots of tofu products, veggie cheese, edamame salads, boca burgers. I really am not a fan of salads, but force myself to eat at least one each day. I get lots of fruit and am, frankly, also pooping constantly. Sorry to be so "real", but I DO need some help here. I started taking primadophilis, and I take tons of suppliments. Should I do a colon cleanse? What's up with all of this???


Love this site, btw, and www.veganoutreach.com

Poll - is everyone who is veggie/ vegan, and walking gass machine?

I personally don't recommend any type of colonic.

This gas thing is perfectly natural.

I had gas for months - matter of fact....just in the last couple of months did it start to get better.

Some specific foods give me trouble (wheat gluten is a bad one) - but aside from isolated foods - I'm "normal".
You probably will be too once your body gets used to the new routine.

Congratulations by the way.

it really depends on what foods i eat, as to how much gas is passed, so to speak, but particular fooods would be; onions, garlic and beans ohhh and falafel seeing as it is full of garlic and chick peas hah!

i'm not embarassed about gas either, it's natural!

Okay......my mother told me this one. It works better than Beano! And......it's cheaper! When you are finished with your meal, no matter WHAT you have eaten, take some Papaya tablets. They are also called "digestive enzymes" and you are to chew then up after a meal!

Works like a charm! And......taste great, too. If it wasn't for them........well - lets just say in yoga and pilates - it would probably smell like the outskirts of HELL!

I have never had a problem with gas at all. I never did eat much meat to begin with, so that might be part of it. With being a on again off again strict vegetarian since '94, I guess that got my body used to eating good stuff.

Wow...super old thread!

I'm totally cool with reviving old threads, but the gas thing comes up...oh...I'd say once a week here.

Sometimes the "Search" feature acts up. I use Google, and use my keyword(s) with "VeggieBoards" so Google will search this site for me.

Anyways, as long as we're digging up this topic, I really can't predict what usually does it most of the time, but it does get bad if I chug a half-gallon of soymilk...

...but sometimes...for no reason...a single air bubble exiting will make the paint peel.

Anything's possible as far as gas goes...if your body's being iffy about digesting something properly.

Hopefully, it's not a sign of a mild peanut allergy.

Hahaha...yeah...I'm glad someone else asked this for me. I really like the papaya suggestion!!! I give papaya to the bunnies when there molting so they can digest any hair they consume so I guess it makes sense...time to go add that to the shopping list. Thanks for the AWESOME suggestion!
