Hi all,

My family has just started the paleo diet. I have noticed my 5 year old will constantly hicup and belch for about 30 mins after. I notice my stomcach also feel tight with gas but not much belching. We eat grass fed beef, chicken, lamb, etc with low carb veggies/fruit. Idea's???

Thanks Mike, We have seen this before with beef but I know things can change. If things don't change I will have to start changing eliminating food items. Scott

Thank you! Our diet was pretty good however we were eating oatmeal and a little bread...So it wasn't too hard for us, except this problem.

Google FODMAPS. May just need to swap out certain veggies.

Might be low stomach acid. In my experience, taking enzyme supplements helped a whole lot. What was your diet like before paleo?

Good luck!

I know of a guy who cannot digest beef. He lacks the enzymes, for some reason. So every time he eats it, it just sits there and gives him stomach problems for 2-3 days. Chicken or seafood is fine. Not sure if this is your problem.

I've found that sauerkraut does wonders for digestion in general
