Currently I am suffering from a severely bloated stomach. About a month ago I was diagnosed with a cyst the size of an orange on an ovarian remnant. I am assuming it is growing which is causing my problem but wondered if my diet was exacerbating it in any way or if anyone could suggest any ways of relieving it. I have been eating Paleo since January and a typical day's meals are: breakfast - scrambled eggs made with butter no milk, mushrooms and tomatoes fried in lard; lunch - roast chicken with skin with melted cheese on top; dinner - large grass-fed beef burger plus some extra mince fried in lard, large salad including tomatoes and cooked beetroot. I also drink about 3 cups of coffee made with double cream. I don't really do snacks but occasionally have a pear or some berries. Portions are not huge and I don't have much appetite. I am not overweight - 5'6" and about 125lbs, my stomach is hard not flabby and I look about 6 months pregnant - not a good endorsement of the paleo lifestyle at the minute! I'm pretty sure the answer is: see what the doctor is going to do about the cyst but could really use some ideas in the meantime.

many soft fruits like pears, apples, and peaches are high in fructose which can be bloating. maybe stick to citrus or berries.
and if you must do cheese on your eggs, choose a lactose-free one like swiss.

Dairy can cause digestive gas/bloating for some, but if your looking pregnant while not, move up the appt. Stat
