I'm not sure if this is a post-GB/IBS issue or just a bonus that comes with getting older but I apparently cannot drink soda anymore. If I have one in the afternoon, I find that come 7 or 8 PM, I have horrible gas pains and pressure. I've tried all sorts of food/drink combinations and it really seems like soda is the culprit. I have minor gas episodes with some other foods, but the episodes I have after drinking soda are distinctive. It's odd to me that the effects happen several hours later, but I can't think of what else it could be. It happens whether it's regular or caff free, even my beloved ginger ale.
So obviously, I have cut out all soda. I know it's not something we should be drinking anyway, but it was a welcome treat every few days. I stay home with my 3 yo so it was nice having something to look foward to that I didn't have to share with him.
Even if you don't have this specific issue, do you care to commiserate with any other dietary quirks?
