Dear Please Help
My pleasure! It is possible that your diet now has a much higher dietary fibre content and that you are also eating foods like legumes (dry, cooked or canned beans, peas, lentils and soya). The human digestive tract needs to adjust to the higher fibre load, which should settle down after a few weeks. How you react to legumes (also high in dietary fibre and certain compounds that produce gas), is an individual response. If you are still experiencing this type of flatulence and it causes you pain or stomach distention after another month, then you will need to discuss this with your dietitian so that she/he can make adjustments to your diet.
