Step Taker, Gas Maker :)

Please excuse me! For the duration of this post, I will no longer be remembering my manners as a "lady"...you have been warned! You still have time to turn back...

TOO LATE!

This past week I have noticed a change in my body. Not necessarily a good change, not necessarily a bad change, most definitely a natural change, but definitely not a polite change. What is this change I speak of (now I'm beginning to sound like the new president hehe)?

GAS! Lots & lots of gas!

So yesterday I got to thinking about this new development & trying to figure out what is causing it. The only thing I can come up with is the recent change to my diet (which has been going very well by the way-thanks for asking ;) I am blaming all of the fiber from the extra fruits & vegetables that I have been eating this week, but then I got to thinking again...
What do I eat for breakfast every morning? If you said cereal, you would be correct, but not just any ordinary cereal...wait for it...

FIBER ONE cereal filled with 9 grams of fiber in each serving! So, needless to say, besides all of the fiber I am normally eating first thing in the morning, I am adding lots more fiber to it throughout the day with all of the extra fruits & veggies I have added to my diet. Who would have guessed that eating healthier could cause such a stink! :)
I just hope that no one was down wind of me yesterday afternoon when I was doing my walk/run (good thing I live in the country), every step I took brought a wonderful moment of relief (if you know what I mean!) :)

Okay okay, I promise I'll try to get back to "being a lady" for tomorrow's post! ;)

Yea, fiber does do that. I suppose it's a good thing, in spite of how uncomfortable, stinky, and embarassing it can be. Imagine what the world would be like if we all ate as much fiber as we should. We'd be able to run our cars, if only we could figure it out....

*laugh* It does get better. When I did the Core diet I had that problem for awhile -- but eventually it all evens out. :)

You're so funny!

Fiber will do that to you, so will pop if you give it up for a long while.

Thanks for the comment on my blog.

You're funny! Hey, why can't you be a lady and experience "relief?" LOL ... Well, maybe your body will adjust soon.

Good luck with the diet!

Lol. So funny! Yes, changing diets can do interesting things to our bodies. I`m sure it`ll work itself out soon.

I think the gas is a small price to pay for a healthier diet.

You have nothing to worry about around here -- blogs are smell-free! :)

Fiber is a KILLER!


(One day, I accidentally ate an entire bag of trader joe's fiberful. I don't recommend it for those sitting around you...)
