    Had a discussion in my last class about whether green can make you bloat??

    This has probably been discussed before but anyone any thoughts? does it affect you?

    When I have mainly green days I have a smaller loss...
    The times I've had good losses were when I did 2/3 red days before weigh in...

    A couple of other ladies mentiond this in class too.....

    I am now thinking that when I have my red days, I am going to cut down on bread and potatoes (as EX).... and use green veggies to bulk my meals... Gonna see if this makes a difference....

    I am thinking it may make a difference to some of us who are prone to water retention?

    Anyway, any thoughts?

    you could try swapping your potatoes for sweet potatoes. i find they dont bloat me as much as a potato and they are less calories. i would try substituting rather than leaving out altogether.

    I found that when I first went onto green days that I felt bloated but after a few days on green, it was fine. I also have quorn with every meal and I think that if you mix the carbs with protein like quorn or a healthy extra of meat, then the bloating should stop.
