    I had awful wind for the first 3 weeks or so :sign0007: I put it down to eating a lot more beans and veg. Seems better lately though...

    I had this for quite a while after restarting SW. It got really embarrassing.
    I found out what caused it for me. It was the hi-fi bars and oats. As much as I love them, I stopped them. I also started having 2 fat free Activia a day and the wind stopped and I became far more regular too.

    I think most people would agree that sw gives you bad wind.
    My husband says he can put up with it because he knows when I'm windy I'm losing weight!! :D

    I second the Activia fat free yogurts
    They stop bloating, I have at least one every day.

    Yes - the Activia realy sorted my tummy out. One or two a day.
    I think it does get better after time - all that fruit and veg have a bit of a cleansing effect, and it can take a bit of time for your body to adjust.

    Well I would say that it is not SW that gives you wind but the move from an unhealthy to a healthy diet. And your body having to start working the way it is supposed to when it hasn't in the past.

    Drink loads of water and try the activia yoghurts and it should ease when your body gets used to the new high fibre diet.

    Hi,
    I have the same problem, been on SW for just over 3 weeks, and am so bloated its embaressing... I do mostly green days, and have meat as My B choice as I don't know what to have for lunch on original days.
    Thanks for the activia tip, I will try that too.
    Also I don't feel like I'm losing when I'm so bloated, or maybe I'm just having a bad week. :O( Will have to wait till wednesday WI.

    It is quite expensive, normally about £2.80 for 8 small pots, but Tescos sometimes have them buy one get one free, and recently they had the large pots (same size as muller) for 4 for £2.00. Not sure what the normal price is for those.
