    i recently added tons of fiber to my diet. as a result, i have been having crazy amounts of gas. what's the deal with these? is it just temporary as my body gets used to the added fiber or will i fart like this forever? is there anything i can do to suppress these bombs?

    how much fiber are you taking in and how are you getting it? I personally haven't seen much of a gas increase, but mine is already horrendous as it is. I take about ~12-15g from Metamucil and the other 20g from diet.

    the fiber is removing the toxins/build up shit and fat from your body. it is a regulator of digestion... like everyone said, give it time.

    How do you guys deal with your gas issues and chicks?

    Between whole grain diet, lots of fruit/veggies, egg white protein, eggs everyday, etc... it's non-stop.

    Ya'll just let it rip constantly in the presence of your woman or hold it for a more appropriate time?

    If it's a long-term girlfriend I'll usually just rip and make a joke of it. If it's a newer girl gotta keep it in.

    The gas occurs because bacteria within the colon, unlike the intestine of humans, are capable of digesting fiber to a small extent. The bacteria produce gas as a by-product of their digestion of fiber.

    I fart a fucking lot. But I also eat a ton of eggs, oatmeal, egg whites, milk and protein drinks. All of them give me some bad gas, however they usually don't smell too bad.

    So I can rip them around females, or at work and not worry. :o

    I'm usually really gassy but they don't smell too bad. Then I took GTE and that changed EVERYTHING. I stripped paint off the wall.

    one thing that i found helped me out alot was limiting my water intake around mealtime. I quite a bit of water during the day, but i will only have a glass with food and for an hour after that. I had bad gas issues before and after trying that, it made a huge difference.

    I had to stop eating FiberOne bars. I couldn't take the steady stream of farts pouring out of my ass for hours afterwards.

    After a couple of Fiber One bars, I could heat a city of mansions with my ass, but Kashi Go Lean has absolutely no effect on me, which sucks.
