Been having terrible stomach bloat pain lately. Before you say it ;) I've got a doctors appointment next week & have already started avoiding FODMAP (fructose malabsorption seems possible) in the meantime, among other things, so far I think I'm improving. But I have some questions to ask the Hackers for their experience:
Does anyone find going STARCH-FREE Paleo they get bloat, stomach pain or other digestive issues? Seems every time I go really good full on with Paleo and starch free (for weight loss, less hunger/cravings (works great!) and, ironically, thinking it would help digestion) the stomach ache/bloat starts up again. Could be co-incidence, but has this happened to anyone?
Can you get bloat from taking Omega-3 fish oil several weeks after starting it? I stopped taking it yesterday just in case. I was taking it in the morning with breakfast, the stomach pain is usually later in the day. It's enteric coated, and supposed to surpass the stomach. It was 3 weeks since starting it that I started to get the issues. Is it possible it's the fish oil?
What has given you bloat while on Paleo?

When you're starch-free, what plants are you eating? Kale, cabbage etc are all very fibrous and often cause more problems. And how are you cooking them?
I don't take fish oil any more but I remember it sometimes caused bloating if I took it on an empty stomach.
