is that too much to ask for lol
So I've been on a lean bulk for a bit now and one of the things I've been running into at night is sort of a stomach inflammation. I consume a bigger chunk of my calories at that time, so I'm guessing my body isn't able to digest it all and my gut takes kind of a hit. Gut health is something I've been interested in lately as its been known to be the "second brain" of your body and plays a big role in regulating your mood/anxiety.
I was wondering if you guys take anything for your gut health and digestion?
Before I begin, I'm not attempting create an us VS them discussion. Purely an observation of comments before and after Cyberpunk 2077s release.
This concept of Stadia's base being a cult existed because of general disbelief in the platform's functionality mixed with obsessive personalities within the subreddit itself.
However, lately, realisation that Stadia probably isn't just a circlejerk has been built off the back of those originally high on copium because their fable of console X, Y or Z's superiority has slowly deflated with hardware limitation.
Now people (unsprisingly) realise that this community is built on an appreciation of cloud gaming on either a budget (during financially difficult times) or a decent minimalist setup providing a real tangible alternative.
It's a relatively new thing, so of course the cement is drying still but this idea that this subreddit isn't anything more than people coming to terms with the enjoyment of something new is absurd.
People are happy, people are having a good time. People are even finding Stadia as the solution to the problems they had prior with video games.
That's not cult like behaviour.
You can witness this ecstatic behaviour on the subreddits of PS5 or SeriesX and SeriesS. The enjoyment of a platform can create bias for sure, however as we approach 100k members and the experience is legitimised, we prepare for a new dialogue which will try to dethrone the platform once again. Probably riffing on input lag and preconceived notions (something something game ownership) as we see a title literally yoinked from a no-name Store (preventing purchase entirely). The cycle shall definitely continue.
Final note -
Before this subreddit hits 100k let's remember to aid people who have genuine criticisms, issues or concerns and not allow our happiness get the better of us. This community is super friendly and will grow exponentially. We are using a platform nonetheless and are not void of judgement. But in 2021 let's ensure we deconstruct where the hate comments are coming from and challenge them accurately. Certain content creators will have an agenda to make quick cash off subjective opinion, we can't change that but people looking in for themselves can change their own perspectives.
Merry Christmas all, and keep having fun posting your setups and experiences.
TL;DR Stadia's community has been built and is starting to manifest into something reminiscent of other platforms, as we enter 2021 new com... keep reading on reddit ➡
Basically as the title says. Do you feel like your digestion is completely normal now that you follow the gluten free diet, or do you have lingering side effects? Does the GF diet affect your digestion?
I'm asking because I've been gluten, lactose and oats free for 8 years now and I feel like my digestion never went back to "normal". Of course before my diagnosis I was extremely bloated, anemic and overall very sick, but my stools seemed much more normal and effortless. Going gluten free made my gut hypersensitive to a ton of food and I'm constantly cutting things out. I'm always either a little bit constipated or my stools are a little bit too loose. Anyone else dealing with similar issues?
As title, i have been doing low foodmap no gluten no dairy for a while, while symptoms improved i still feel not well enough to live as a normal person.
The tiredness fatigue and "brain inflammation" feeling or brain fog is preventing me to continue on my normal life.
So, did you have improvements going into carnivore diet?
both are caused by bodily functions, contracting of the muscles, etc. but typically only cramps are painful. If pain receptors are supposed to be the body’s warning for something being wrong, and the mensuration cycle has always been a human experience, then why does it still hurt so bad?
Hello, I am a 22-year-old self-identified skinny fat female (126 lbs, 5'8, 32chest, 26waist, 34hip) who is seeking to lose weight and look lean but feels like I'm not seeing the best results. In the past two years, I would just eat cleaner (no boba, no late eating, IF) and usually lose weight effortlessly.
Since December 2020, I went from sedentary to 10 min runs and pilates and am now doing 15 min runs and pilates. Usually, that is more than enough to lose weight but I guess not this time!! Since December, I have definitely lost weight as a whole but it's like my neck, face, upper arm, and stomach still retain the same % of fat I had before this recent weight loss endeavor.
As for my diet, I eat pretty clean. Mainly veggies, fruit, and fish – dairy-free and basically gluten-free. The only processed thing I eat is like 100% Peanut butter or my collagen peptide protein.
Because this journey has been rocky and more stagnate than usual, I am now considering if I potentially have gut issues or hormonal issues that hold me back? I feel like I truly look different every day – my face and stomach look bloated randomly. I feel like I should also mention that I am considered a very gassy person (burping excessively and farting a lot and smelling worse than usual) and I also bloat a lot. Started taking probiotics for this and psyllium husk to help with regularity/potentially balancing hormones.
I have considered seeing a holistic nutritionist for these reasons. But honestly at this point, IDK if a fitness consultant or a nutritionist would be better in helping me identify the core issue and seeing the results that I want to see.
Since my previous attempts at weight loss were much more effortless and I seem to be working harder now to lose weight, I am wondering how I can be more strategic. After doing some skinny-fat research, I plan to start incorporating 5 lb weights for arm exercises, prioritize protein, do more walking throughout my day, and do HIIT instead of running. Also, the only reason I really want muscle is so that I can kick out my stubborn fat!

Would love to read if anyone has other tips or has been in a similar place!! <3
So tibi is currently on a very high quality all stages wet food and carnilove puppy kibble (fish turkey) no grains But is quite gassy and this evening had a large loose poop 💩.
Anyone have any ideas what else can cause this digestive problem
Anyone have digestion problems while bulking? I used to be pretty regular in the morning but now have trouble after waking up and usually end up feeling bloated when I weigh in?
I make sure to get enough fiber, eating plenty of whole foods, and am drinking a lot of water, in addition to walking in the morning to aid digestion. Anyone have any tips or experienced the same?
Why YSK - This is useful because Sex is a crucial part of life and many get confused as to why they tend to lose vitality and become a product of sexual inefficiency. This provides a little insight to improve your bedroom game.
If you eat too much before sex it will affect a male’s ability to get and maintain an erection due to inflammation and blood focusing on digestion.
If your sleep is compromised, primarily REM sleep, it will affect your libido and ability to get it up
If your body is metabolizing TOO many drugs (less is more here) then you may become impotent
A diet replete with junk food and refined carbs will destroy endothelial cells which in turn cause erectile dysfunction
It’s all about bloodfloow hence why morning wood happens under an empty stomach and after a good night’s rest
So for the best sexual vitality; let yourself digest, don’t consume too much alcohol or drugs before sex, get quality sleep, and steer away from a diet high in refined sugar and processed food
Bonus: stop watching porn, you’ll be a much better lay
Now, go get some pleasure.
I have been lifting hard using mostly an upper/lower routine focused on compounds but am still moving very low weights even tho I've been taking fitness seriously for 1.5 years now.
I try to push myself to lift more weights/reps every workout, have eaten at a surplus for 9 months which just made me fatter but barely any stronger. After my unsuccessful bulk attempt I cut down again which probably was a good choice, I didn't lose what little strength I had.
I have a few problems with my shoulder and lower back so I've been doing daily PT and stretching so I can go back to deadlifting and overhead pressing.
But another issue I've had for a very long time is the fact that my body seems to have problems digesting the foods I consume. Around the same time I started stalling more frequently I also started having issues with low energy, brain fog, dizziness and other weird issues.
I've always felt like I must've been doing something wrong when trying to gain muscle which lead to my poor progress, even tho I followed all the basic knowledge like lifting hard, frequently, eating and sleeping a lot, trying to improve technique etc.
Do you think my problems in the gym could be related to my other health issues or do I just have poor genetics or need to optimize my training/sleeping/diet even more?
There doesn’t seem to be a sub for digestion in general so I thought this was the next closest thing. So, for the past several months, my digestion was amazing. Each day I’d wake up, take one big poop, and be good til the next morning (with slight variation). I had relatively no gas or bloating. Then, starting about a week ago, things changed. I haven’t had a good bowel movement in about 5 days, have been extremely gassy, and bloated. Any idea what could be going on?
I came across this subreddit by chance, but wanted to see if anyone had any thoughts on a very long running issue I have been dealing with.
There's....something... about what's contained in these posts that makes me wonder if it could help me get any closer to solving my problems.
Which are...mainly digestion. I simply cannot eat ANY meal (yes, of course I have done exclusion diets etc). But there is nothing I can eat without the following symptoms - after about 45 minutes I get awful gas and feel that the food isnt digesting. If anything it feels like its almost fermenting inside me. I get this horrible brain depression as it happens, it feels like my body is not doing some very important part of digestion. I have had all sorts of scans and blood tests and nothings come up.
'IBS' is the best the doctors can offer, but there is literally nothing i can eat which doesnt cause these symptoms, even an iBs sufferer can follow a FODMAPS diet with some success. I have no toilet issues.
The links to what you guys are talking about have been as follows:
Yes...I know what you mean about a kind of confidence and clarify after heavy drinking the next morning.
More related to digestion ...I don't get these digestion symptoms if I eat when very drunk.
Maybe maybe when I was on a steroid cream the symptoms were less? I need to investigate this more.
I had a sleep test for HGV where the doctor implied my 'levels' were not typical, a healthier pattern apparently showed a kind of 'recharging' effect happening over night, but that didn't happen for me.
All doctors have said is just 'oh its stress' but it feels more than that. I get the same symptoms however my life is, stressed or not stressed. Meditation/exercise/good sleep, not drinking...ive tried it all and nothing changes my digestion problems. Like I said, the only thing that has proved I can digest is eating stuff when wasted which obviously isnt exactly a strategy.
Some of this talk of GABA stuff resonates, I tried phenibut a long time ago and got terrible withdrawl, but I do wonder if there's something wrong with my GABA levels, whilst I will never touch phenibut again it did make me feel 'at ease with myself'.
If anyone has any leads or ideas, let me know.
Eg if I eat lots of sugar from fruit, I have no problems.
But if I eat a small serving of cake or pasta, the bloating, gas and poor concentration comes back.
For some reason the last 3 days I just need to go the toilet very frequently. Like I had to defecate once per day but now it's like 5 times, didn't really count them.
It's not even diarrhea, the shape is actually much healthier than usual.
I didn't even change my diet. Should I be concerned? No problems except oddly frequent Number 2s.
My digestive system is usually pretty good, I am 19 and my metabolic age is 12 and I don't gain weight or get fatter despite needing a lot of food to feel full.
Hey guys so yesterday I fed my snake a large rat pup. Unfortunately I don't remember what the measurements were since I purchased it a while ago, but I'm fairly certain it wasn't any bigger than her last meal since I bought them at the same time.
She had a little trouble getting it orientated right but eventually she got it most of the way down then retreated into her hide with it. (Sometimes she does that. Sometimes she doesn't).
Today I go in to change her water since she dunked the rat in it last night (thanks for that, zelda) and she just comes out of her hide in hunting mode. At first I thought maybe she had abandoned the rat inside her hide. But when I tried to lure her out to check I see that she definitely has a bulge from having ate.
My main issue is now that I don't know why shes acting so strange and I don't know if the bulge is in the right spot. I feel like it should be farther down her digestive track after nearly 20 hours, but she's already gone back into her hide and I can't get a better idea of where its at.
Does anyone have any explanations or suggestions on why she is acting like shes still hungry?
I know Aerobic Digestors have an Oxygen supply hence it could be an open lagoon but I was wondering for Anaerobic Digestors.
I know Covered Anaerobic Lagoon is very common for biogas production right now because it's cheap to just place a cover on top but I know back then before biogas capture and production, a lot of water treatments used uncovered lagoons for digestion method.
Hence, would an opened lagoon still undergo Anaerobic Digestion?
Are the main difference between Anaerobic and Aerobic Digestors is the constant oxygen supply inside the lagoon?
Hello SIBO friends
After 6 weeks of herbal treatment I did my 2nd Lactulose breath test and it came back negative for SIBO, my small intestine is now clear of the methane and hydrogen. Hoerrrayyy!
The only thing they still were able to see is a baseline of 15ppm of methane and 1ppm of hydrogen. I presume that’s the remaining gas producing bugs living (or surviving) in my colon?
My digestion improved a lot, especially in my small intestine: no more burping, no more nausea, I think I’m gaining weight again, taking L-glutamine, zinc carnosine, Vit-C daily and enzymes with every meal. For motility and prevent constipation I take 1Tsp psyllium every day and 1000mg caps of ginger before bedtime, both really help me well.
Just before Christmas I sent a stool sample to analyse my microbiota in-depth and the results should arrive within days. Despite the good news of clearing SIBO I’m not feeling much better, I think these results may reveal something, but what?
I still feel pain in my colon, internal hemorrhoids bleed sometimes especially after eating wheat or high histamine food, constipation is better but if my large intestin is not fully empty I’m can be very tired (physically and mentally). I also feel something is still giving my body inflammation, as my histamine intolerance improved a bit but hasn’t disappeared. Could that mean I have an undetected infection of some kind of bacteria in my large intestine?
Has anybody completely cleared his/her histamine intolerance and how?
Best wishes for a healthy 2021
I've encountered sentences about this in many suttas in Mahjima Nikaya. One example is:
>He is free from illness & discomfort, endowed with good digestion - not too cold, not too hot, of moderate strength - fit for exertion.
>90. Kaṇṇakatthala Sutta: At Kaṇṇakatthala
What did he mean? Is it about physical health like not having ulcers or whatever digestive illness? What's the point?
Is it a specific function of the digestive system, a specific organ or the whole digestive system?
Just wonder what most of you would simplify the digestion to. I am fully aware that you cannot just take one step out of the system and call it the system. But my girlfriend, for an instance, likes to reduce the digestion to simply absorbing the nutrients from food.
Peace & Love
He looked confused, then stared at me in stunned silence. After a few seconds he asked "And Tigger?"
I’ve always had intermittent digestive issues growing up. Gas, bloating, cramping, nausea, the whole Pepto Bismal shtick honestly. I would be completely fine for days and then folded over in a ball the next. I’ve kept food diaries and it’s mildly related to stress but it’s also ruined perfectly tranquil or exciting times. I can go months being relatively okay but it never really leaves.
My friend was making fun of me the other day while I was eating a burrito and basically said I eat like her pug. It was a joke but it got the gears turning.
I do scarf my food. I try not to, especially around people. But I have a very hard time breathing when I’m eating and I feel like I’m suffocating. I either try to scarf or have to eat glacially slow to manage. I have a pretty sever cleft palate and lip that was repaired but I never fixed my jaw. So everything is still kind of pushed back... like a pug.
I’ve been tested for absolutely everything digestive related and no dice. So does this sound familiar?
My girlfriend has had a problem for some time and has seen doctors but she feels they don't listen as all problems are just chalked up to getting older.
She eats a small meal of mostly fruit and cheese when she wakes up at around noon. As soon as she eats she has uncontrollable bowels for about 2 to 3 hours. Can't leave the house. Has to stay close to the bathroom.
So we figured out something yesterday. She ate a salad and this is the first lettuce she had in a week. In 1 1/2 hours she was having uncontrollable bowels and she passed partially digested lettuce that she had just eaten 1 1/2 hours earlier. How is this possible?
Hello, I‘ve been suffering Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) Symptoms since over 2 years now and my health has been on and off. I‘ve been having a really messed up digestion (dry stool, long toliet sessions) and sometimes I get „episodes“ where I struggle breathing (short breath) and struggle swallowing anything. These episodes usually last 10-30 minutes and end once I burped out enough gas. Once I burped it out, I start feeling normal again and I can go on with my day. Since my stool is so dry usually, I barely fart anymore. The only thing that really helps my digestion is very spicy food (which I don’t mind) or yogurt drinks. During these breathing episodes my anxiety skyrockets and I feel like I‘m gasping for air. This has been happing since 2018, sometimes at random times, usually right after smoking. I used to have a coke (cola) addiction which messed up my stomach so bad that I literally felt like I was gonna pass out because I couldn’t breathe properly, so I‘ve quit drinks with any kind of sparkling gas ever since. I‘ve quit smoking for the most part, hoping it would better my lung health; it didn’t. I‘m still getting episodes for seemingly no reason, wether i‘m in the shower; bed or at work, during these episodes I‘m unable to concentrate because I feel like I‘m not getting enough air. I‘ve been at the doctor countless times trying to figure out whats wrong with me, barely got any good diagnosis / help. One just told me to „stop smoking and drinking and it will go away“ , while the other was convinced I was just imagining it and I should see a psychiatrist (that was the final straw for me, i haven’t been at the doctor since that insulting advice). The best advice I got was „try to eat more healthy“ with no explanation what I should eat exactly. They also took a look inside my gut, saying its filled with gas. For a time I tried to eat „more healthy“ and less unhealthy and lost about 23 kg (down from 86, turned really skinny). That was a time where I tried eating more nuts and only 1 meal per day (i know thats not healthy, dw). Anyway, I‘ve regained my weight again , relapsed into eating really unhealthy, don‘t exercise enough all due to covid. I feel really terrible lately, having these random panic attacks happening in the worst situations, gasping for air in public situations that people even start to notice. I want this to change, asap. I had such bad experiences with doctors that I don’t really wanna visit one again (I could tell endl... keep reading on reddit ➡
Could you quote things that makes your digestion difficult therefore making your body produce more stomach acid? Very specific but it’s very important to me lol, things like sleeping a few minutes after eating, eating a lot, eating protein, laying down or drinking water after eating, stress, etc. I don’t know if there’s more but anyway
Tips on how to increase stomach acid naturally instead of adding to it? (not betaine, acv)
I read in a book ( Zlatoš, V.(2013). Životospráva–najkomplexnejšia stratégia pre
optimalizáciu životosprávy na Slovensku )
that you should not combine eating protein and simple carbs (like rice) in the same meal so as not to impede the protein absorption (apologies if i am not using the correct scientific jargon). Instead you should eat protein sources with veggies and carbs separately, although together with another source of fat - olive oil, chia seeds, yoghurt etc. (thats how i understood it anyway).
My question for those more knowledgeable in the nutritional science than me are :
thanks a lot for any reply, hope I will learn something new and broaden my horizons :)
I've been feeling tremendous putting a drop of "Folinic Acid" (not folic) into a liter of water each morning and sipping throughout the day, roughly 1-2mg total, or as needed. (As a side note, I highly recommend this method for anyone experienced issues with methylfolate).
One thing I've noticed, after hours of feeling incredible/focused/motivated, if I eat - it comes to a halt. This includes something simple such as a light keto meal, even foods containing decent folate such as 2 eggs + 50g of grassfed beef liver. I have also been very strict on avoiding folic acid, even the slightest suspect I avoid.
Perhaps digestion is just a strenuous process? Or perhaps digestion of food blocks the folinic acid?
Any advise appreciated!
My digestion's been really poor lately, causing me to be extremely exhausted most days. I'm looking for anything I can take to improve it, especially nutrient absorption. My nervous system is kind of fucked up right now though and I can't tolerate most supplements like B complex, Vit C, Zinc, Magnesium, etc. (Paradoxical reactions)
So I was thinking of getting some digestive enzymes, but I also can't tolerate amylase (spikes my blood sugar I think) and unfortunately, 90% of them have that. I'm trying to find some with just protease and lipase but I don't think that exists.
If anyone has any other recommendations I'd love to hear them.
I currently take Vitamin D, Omega 3, Psyllium husk and eat a pretty healthy whole foods diet.
I probably have poorly controlled GERD and IBS, but never have had an official diagnosis but just a doctor saying "oh its GERD" when i explained my symptoms, and didn't do any tests to rule everything else out.
Took famotadine for a while with horrible side effects, switched to omeprazole and stopped taking it because it says 2 weeks on the bottle and I'm not trying to hurt my baby (pregnant). Going back to OB on thursday to ask if i should keep taking it or not. I also have a little bit of sludge in my gallbladder which started when i got pregnant. I can't tell if what I'm dealing with is GERD related, gall bladder, IBS or something completely different. Ive been going back and forth with my doctor over the phone and im gonna lose it.
Moving on though, i get pain upon initially eating, which is so bad that I get close to vomiting. I am having a hard time consuming food because it makes me get this horrible nausea that feels totally different from pregnancy nausea.
Like my body wants to reject the food, and my pregnancy nausea was just oh i don't like looking at that food. The only foods my stomach seems to accept is pizza, ensure (ik this isn't a great solution but I'm not gaining weight), milk, water, and i was able to stomach a spinach salad with broccoli earlier but i was curled over from mild cramping. Sometimes get pains when i drink just water. I'm supposed to be on a low fat diet, but its becoming extremely hard with my stomach
Well on top of that, once it gets passed my stomach, the pain moves lower and lower until i have to poop it out basically but this is more intermittent, but still painful. I get cramps in my mid stomach, then lower stomach. I also feel like fainting when its time for the bathroom.
I also developed a sharp pain in my side over the weekend and would return every time i had to pee (10+ times that day), i could barely eat before i felt like throwing up, i had this cramping wave pain when i moved or did anything. Had really soft poo was on the toilet 10+ times, and a horrible pain in my lower right. Went to the ER, and they couldn't find anything wrong, but couldn't confirm i didn't have appendicitis.
Probably not appendicitis because its been 4 days since and the lower right pain is a lot better. After i got home from the hospital i was having horrible cramping and then had an episode of extreme diarrhea that was so painful in my stomach i was convinced my appendix burst.
And then the symptoms slowly improved, but... keep reading on reddit ➡
I've been doing keto OMAD for over 3 months now. Things are going well overall and I'm down over 20 pounds nearing 25.
Recently I've noticed I'm waking up feeling like I still have food in my stomach. Does digestion or emptying of the stomach slow down with intermittent fasting over time? My dinners are typically around 7pm and not going to sleep until 1 or 2am most nights these days (awful quarantine sleep schedule). This should be plenty of time before bed for digestion.
There's been a few unpleasant ways I don't have to go into too much detail, but I know there's food in my stomach. This morning for example I'm really quite gassy and keep burping a lot still 3 hours after I woke up. Another morning I was feeling a bit nauseous in my stomach when I woke up and when I brushed my teeth I reflex spit up an acidy mixture of undigested food bits. It felt like my food was still high in my stomach.
I'm still digesting and passing food...if I google this all I find is gastroparesis which doesn't seem right based on the description.
I had been on 500mg 24hr release metformin for a year and quit taking it 3 months ago. It was making me lightheaded and I feel much better without it. After a year on it my A1C was 5.7. Today (3 months off metformin) my A1C test came back 5.8. Will be checking in with my dr to make sure this is ok.
beware TMI: 3 months off metformin my digestion is still a wreck. Prior to this gut destroying med I had great digestion. My bms were like clock work and not insanely urgent or sputtering/soft serve. My diet is vegan with lots of fiber I don't understand why my body is in such disarray.
for anyone who's come off metformin did you go back to smooth moves? I long for the days of nice firm yet gentle morning and evening evacuations...
Due to these not being heating herbs, I was curious if they might actually impair the digestion of proteins, more specifically meat. Or do carmnitive species as a whole just improve digestion of all things?
