Our expert says:
Bloating after eating specific foods when one has a spastic colon, is unfortunately an individual reaction. Some patients develop bloating when they eat white bread, others when they eat brown bread, etc. You can try keeping a food diary for a week or 2 to record which foods you eat (eat one veg at a time) and how your body reacts, and then avoid the offending foods. None of the vegetables you list are known for forming gas, so this is an example of the type of individual reaction I mentioned. I would recommend that you start using probiotics again and that you try Bifidoflora which you can buy at health shops. If you find that you cannot control your bloating then please consult a clinical dietitian (visit the Association for Dietetics in SA Website at: www.adsa.org.za and click on "Find a Dietitian" to find a dietitian in your area), to help you sort out which foods to eat and which ones you need to avoid.
I hope you can control the bloating
