    Could you do a green day without the pasta and potatoes?

    Lots of fruit, veg, boiled eggs (my lifeline!) mullerlight yoghurts? Use cheese as your HexA choices as I find it helps fill me up. Quorn mince or pieces in large amounts - anything to get you through a day without pasta/potatoes.

    Try and up your fluid intake for the day too to get rid of any retained water. it might not be a great day, but if it sorts out your bloating it would be worth it, wouldn't it?

    Hope you feel better soon!

    Hi Jess,

    I have the same problem when I do green days. Have you tried using alternative grains instead of pasta - such as cous cous, millet or quinoa (all available from most supermarkets) or sweet potato instead of normal potato.
