:oI hope someone can help me. I lost 100 pounds on Nutrisystem. While on the diet (7 months), I ate tons of vegetables for dinner and 2 servings of fruit per day. I felt great! Then I continued eating really healthy and lost 30 more pounds. Now I am a "normal" weight. At the end of December 2007 I started having problems with gas, mainly in the evening, with only small amounts and easily managed, in the day. I should also add until this point, I was always really regular - every morning at 7:30 (if you know what I mean). But then almost a radical change. I am no longer able to regularly go and I am very constipated. My gas starts after dinner and is weird. I can feel it build inside. For months, I had to run out of the room about 20 times a night. I can't sleep because of the gas - it gets even worse when I lay on my side. For months I was taking Benefiber and a stool softener - nothing helped. I have tried to figure out which food(s) may cause it, but I can't really pin anything down. I've stopped eating most vegetables and I can't seem to eat fruit now. This is really affecting me and my health. No bloating that I'm aware of except when the gas is really bad. Has anyone experienced anything similar? Thank you for your help!
