    I know this is probably too much information, but I am hoping i'm not the only one suffering from way too much wind/gas!!

    For the past few days I have been constantly burping, and 'releasing wind'. I feel like i'm full of air! Am I the only one experiencing this? I've also been getting quite painful stomach cramps every now and again.

    Any hints or tips to stop this issue?! :eek:

    Could you be constipated?

    Hi Hanmac , Just completed my first week but last night had a few wafer thin slices of ham (have been told that was ok on CD in past so presume still ok with Exante?) but it creased me with wind which I could kind of feel moving from my stomach and through my intestine!!! (sorry too much info but you did ask!) I think it must be the huge change to eating habits that 'freaks out' your system.
    Good luck xx

    I took a couple of ducolax the other night as I thought it might 'help' as thought I might be constipated as well, but it doesn't seem to have helped!
    I've been on the diet for over 3 weeks now so thought my body would have adjusted by now :(

    Yeah, the constipation thing is a nightmare on vlcd isn't it? I really have to force myself (and remember) to drink plenty of water cos that makes such a difference, but when you stop 'eating' sometimes the last thing you want is cold water :(

    I get really bad windy problems too.. and i take dulcolax once a week on this diet as my whole system just grinds to a halt. Not much fun but it isn't painful or anything for me so i just put up with it as i like losing the weight. Maybe going to WS rather than TS might help a little? It was my plan to shift to WS if my body really can't cope or if i have enough of the side effects.

    Im the same with the windy biz and the toilet troubles. 1st week im usually looser than a hookers knickers! After that i get bunged up and the wind starts. Willing to put up with this to shift the weight though.

    The burps arnt always good for me though. Have acid reflux so if i chug a shake im not keen on just to get it down it makes it worse. The return trips usually pretty nasty!

    Sugar free versions are ok so far as im aware. Thankfully i get my gaviscon on prescription, would cost a fortune if not.

    Maybe you are lactose intolerant and all the whey protein has your system acting up.

    Lol, thank god I am not alone in this!

    Had some embarrassing incidents in Sainsburys earlier this week where I couldnt walk for squeaking.

    Seriously tho, is this something we will have to live with for as long as we are on the packs?!
