I'm so glad you asked this. You are not alone. I was feeling this way last night. Yes, please any suggestions. I just started Monday. Is this something that will pass as we get used to the food? THANKS!!!.
I know that taking inactivated charcoal tablets (from any place that sells supplements) is a well-known remedy for gas. It quickly absorbs the gas and helps it pass through. It works for me!.
Not sure how long you've been on Medifast, but I found the gas eased up a good bit after the first week! And, for me, it's the first time in 2 years that I haven't had off-and-on indigestion!.
Do you know if they sell these (inactive charcoal tablets) at Walmart?.
I think it's pretty normal. I had it the first several days. I'm pretty sure it was the shock to my body of eating a vegetable that didn't come drowned in pizza sauce and cheese..
Ummm, pizza sauce and cheese....Oops.....day dreamin' there for a moment. I had REALLY bad gas for the first week, seems to have subsided now. Good luck..
They certainly should! It's fairly common. In fact, if I didn't buy my last bottle at CVS, it was probably from Walmart. Ask the pharmacist if you can't find it in the supplements section..
The only time I had any gas was when I ate more than 1 bar in a day. Are you eating alot of bars???.
For me, it's all the soy but my body adjusted after 7-10 days and then it was minimal. bars don't seem to bother me..
I have done Medifast before and recommited June 1, 2010. The first 2 weeks it was horrible I couldn't stand to be in the room with myself. Now I am in the middle of week 4 and while I do still have gas, it is minimal..
It took a few weeks before my body adjusted. I took Gas X and Beano, but that only helped temporarily. It does subside eventually. Hold onthis too shall pass!...lol.
I know some people have no problem having 2 or more bars a day, but for me just one bar gets my tummy rumbling and starts the Medifarts. lol They also bloat my belly a bit..
I've got 4 more bars left with this last order and none in my next. I've replaced the bars with more brownies. Less expensive and no Medifarts!.
I hear many people get this from the crunch bars. I have had no problems, thankfully!.
This is my first day on the plan. I have really bad gas too and will have to quit if it keeps up. I took some Gas X and it's eased a LITTLE. I also have a headache and am really hungry. :-(.
As soon as your body detoxes this will slow down alot. I have read alot of post about this in the past and it seems to get much better by 2 weeks..
Are y'all taking the digestive health supplement? When I started I got it from the Medifast center; it's probiotics and that kind of stuff. I haven't really had problems with gas at all..
That being said, the first day is just rough, Iss3771. Do whatever you can to get through the first couple of days. It does get better!.
