For the past 3 years I've been dealing with chronic bloating. So much so that it looks like I'm pregnant when it's really bad. I started paleo 2 months ago and it helped a lot but I notice that when I eat any fruit, (sweet) potatoes, pumpkin, or anything that has more than a couple carbs in it, the bloat comes right back with a vengeance.
I went keto for a bit and it helped my stomach but I got so tired I could hardly work. Also I don't see how that could be doable long term.
Do you think if I stick with keto for a bit longer my carb digesting organs (pancreas, parotid gland etc.) would get enough "rest" and be able to handle sugars/starches again?
Any ideas would be awesome thanks!
ps: I'm a 22 year old female.
