Sounds like you're facing a fermentation problem. Undigested food is remaining too long within your intestinal tract, and the residue allows bacteria to create gas (which is often putrid). I have noticed a huge reduction in flatulence after supplementing with digestive enzymes and betaine hydrochloric acid (HCl) with meals. I have to take about 3-4 with every meal to be safe. Otherwise, all Hell breaks loose. _ I use Now Super Enzymes, but I'm sure any brand will do. Good luck!

I had bad gas when I started eating paleo, after a week or so it went away. If I have a bad diet day my gas comes back the next day I begin to eat clean... I am not academic but for me it's linked to the times I eat like shit.
