    Severe bloating?

    I'm in my first week of SW after re-joining and my bloating has become extreme. I got upset yesterday because I honestly looked pregnant and I felt like I couldn't go outside with my belly so huge and uncomfortable.

    Is it normal to experience bloating in the early stages of SW? I admit I have been eating more fruits and vegetables than usual, and I did make lentil burgers a couple of days ago that might be the culprit.

    I'm just scared because of the bloating I'll get a gain in my first week!

    Yeah, I had loads of bloating especially the first week but I still lost 4.5 lbs - stick with it, some things do still affect me (I narrowed it down to either Babybel lights or pickled onions) and have cut those out since and things have improved. Keep a food diary and also keep note of how you feel after eating and it will help you down the line to cut things down or out completely.

    Yeah it hit me big time, I think all the fruit and high fibre foods can cause bloating in the beginning, but I also think that we tend to all dwell on feeling bloated more when we're trying to lose weight. I still lost 6lbs in my first week so stick it out, drink plenty of water and wait to see what the scales says
    Over halfway through this weightloss journey... There is no going back!

    I'm not on EE yet but eat lots of veg generally & it's always the veg that bloats me. I find brocolli & cauliflower the worst (2of my faves, typical).

    How about salad instead? Big bowl of lettuce tomatoes cucumber & peppers?

    I joined SW last week and was hoping someone could shed some light on this for me. I am SO bloated, and, ahem, windy...

    I am hoping this will stop when my body calms down and gets used to the immense amount of veg it is now consuming... :S

    Try green/peppermint tea if you like it, it really helps. And water too x

    Thanks, I will try both! I think it's calming down a bit now. Woke up this morning and I *didn't* look pregnant!

    I narrowed it down to lentil burgers that I made! There was A LOT of lentils. Plus lots of onion. I'm feeling a lot better now!
