Please hack my husband's gas

Hi all... Basically, my husband has got some crazy gas (from both ends).. We eat pretty much paleo, though we may eat more white rice than most (always cooked in bone broth, though). No gluten (he's celiac and has been off gluten longer than the rest of us, about 3 years or so), basically, meat, eggs, fish, rice, veggies.. All conventional for now, unfortunately (budget issues). We don't eat many nuts, they're really expensive here, but every once in a while, he'll come home with a small pack of peanuts, which make him horribly sick. I guess he keeps forgetting /rolleyes.. He just brought some home the other day, it was the first time in perhaps three months. (yes, he got horribly sick)

This gas is ridiculous! Any ideas?? Thanks!

You would think he would learn his lesson on the peanuts. I used to love peanuts and PB but have successfully avoided them since going Paleo. Had a bit of a reaction when I tried them again and have abstained since. Not worth it!

Yep, lots of veggies are really tough - for me it's onion, garlic and the brassica family.

I have actually suspected that there may be gluten in the peanuts (they are roasted) but I'm not sure. Either way, they're not good for him...

The peanuts just make him feel sick in his stomach... He just feels awful, like he's coming down with the flu or something, and they make his stomach hurt horribly.

Try ditching the eggs for a week. Or/and try low-fiber vegetables. What do you mean that peanuts make him sick? Gas? Or...?

Check out FODMAPS. A lot of folks (including me) who are gluten-intolerant/celiac also have problems digesting certain carbohydrates.

By eliminating or reducing the foods that cause gas & bloating for me, I have a very happy digestive system (and husband!)

EGGS! I have the same gas problem if I eat eggs. Also, if they are just conventional peanuts they can be fried in some horrible hydrogenated something.
