This is a GREAT topic. Lynnwood, you're hilarious!
I'm trying to do a similar thing by eliminating certain foods to see if I stop FARTING! It's out of control. I can literally send my husband running down the stairs to get as far away from me and my stink bombs as possible..... You get the idea!
I saw my GI doc today about all this. He laughed when I described the smell... "It is like death. Like total rot". He figures I have a pretty big bacterial overgrowth in my bowel. I'm not allergic to wheat, we tested that. But I am lactose intollerant. BIG TIME. But the farts happen no matter what I eat. So I'm stumped. I've been like this since that terrible medication allergy I had in June. I'm seeing a dietition on Monday.
So if anyone knows what else might be causing this gas please educate me! Oh, fructose is another trigger. I love fruit:(
I think it's great you're trying this Pat! Keep us posted on anything else you notice being good or bad to you!
