Someone told me it's all the grains but I don't want to believe it (it is the only carb/grain I have during the day). Say it ain't so :-(

Ditto. No other food created such a balloon in my belly.

Kashi golean is essentially a combination of much of what most people here strive to avoid.

Yes, I was a HUGE Kashi fan during my low calorie, high protein, high fiber days. Who knew they were a part of my problem? It's amazing to me how much "healthy" stuff I was eating that was bad for me.

IF a crouton can hurt my belly, a big daily bowl of crunchy/puffy grainy soy protein sprayed cerealness could certainly hurt yours. I know I'll get flamed for promoting something high phytate here, BUT if you are dying for cereal, I have found oatmeal with cream and a few raisins to be a benign occasional cereal replacement. Rice would be better, but rice cereal and rice pudding make me gag, so I cannot personally recommend them.

The cereal is full of soy. You would want to avoid that for sure.

Stop eating the kashi for 30 days and see how you feel. You can always resume eating it if you notice no improvement.

I just read the ingredients on their site and the only things I would actually eat are honey (very rarely), calcium carbonate (if I felt I needed some vitamin C(halk)), and salt.

When I switched from the SAD to the SHAD (standard "healthy" American diet) I began consuming Kashi products heavily.

The biggest thing that I remember is that I always felt so sleepy in the morning and had to run/workout in order to get my energy levels up.

I was basically having my Kashi with a side of chronic cardio.

I used to eat this for breakfast every morning and then wonder why I had diarrhea all the time, since I was eating such a healthy virtuous thing. Later, I realized it's pretty much the equivalent of eating sandpaper flakes in terms of what it does to the gut lining. All your gut lining and good microflora flushed down the toliet...it does make good kitty litter though!

The soy in it always bloated me and made my stomach completely painful (and I'm sure the grains weren't helping!). I stopped eating it years ago because of misery it caused.

Kashi GoLean cereal is literally the only thing that I actually could identify as bothering the hell out of my stomach before I went paleo.

Any food that passes large quantities of undigested matter into your lower intestine will cause a large amount of gas to be generated. I'm no doctor (although a lot of doctors are morons), but a slurry of lactose and fiber along with the remains of your food entering the last intestine will cause a large bloom in your intestinal flora. The bacteria would go nuts, realeasing large amounts of methane into the slurry, which in turn makes it difficult to take the water out of the slurry to turn it into poop. Thus, you have lots of gas, and then you have diarreah. I just figured this out today, after a week of these symptoms, that it is probably the cup of Kashi I eat every day. IN FACT, if it wasn't for fiber's ability to disrupt intestine function, bile secretions would be reuptaken by the body, and there would be no heart-disease benefit to consuming fiber. So today I declare, this fiber craze is total BS (unless you want lower cholesterol).

I doesn't make my stomach hurt,but I don't eat it everyday either. Nothing in excess is good. Eat tuna everyday for a month and will have some adverse effects as well. Moderation. I'm 6 ft tall and 4 years ago I started at 254 lbs. Now I'm maintaining 225 lbs with only two workouts per week. My goal is 210. I'm going to make it. This paleo is legit, but I'm not going to cut my dairy completely out, but just moderate my intake. So I believe moderation is key.
