Live Lean Nation, before we get into today’s episode on how to stop gassy protein farts, we just want to wish everybody health and safety.
We’re thinking about you, so keep positive, stay active, and keep that diet on point to get your immune system strong.
This is going to be a light and fun post where you will hear the word “fart” a lot.
This is another episode from our #WayBackWednesday series, where we highlight the best questions from previous episodes of our #AskLiveLeanTV Q&A show.
This question is from #AskLiveLeanTV Ep. 006.
Lady Rosaleee on Twitter asks: Whenever I eat eggs and meat my butt goes off like a bubble machine, ALL DAY. This is so embarrassing. I would love to know how to stop gassy protein farts? What should I do?
This is so funny, especially since these TMI questions usually come from guys, not girls.
So we love your honesty and humor about this embarrassing subject.
Basically what she’s saying is the eggs and meat are giving her the protein farts.
We actually hear about protein farts a lot, especially when it comes to whey protein shakes.
Sure it may be funny to think about, but a lot of people do not digest whey protein very well.
Although I’ve never heard of meat and eggs specifically causing protein farts, in your case it sounds like these high protein foods may be causing it as well.
Here’s how to stop gassy protein farts.
If you’re getting the bubble guts, the first thing you need to try is reducing the amount you’re eating.
For example, you say eggs and meat, which I assume you’re referring to red meat, are giving you a lot of gas.
If this is true, you can try reducing your consumption of those foods, or avoid them completely, one at a time.
By eliminating one food at a time from your diet, you can then assess if the protein farts stop after a few weeks.
If the protein farts do stop, you should reduce or completely avoid that food.
Avoiding foods that aggravate your digestive system can be tricky, especially when it’s healthy foods high in protein.
However, once you figure out and eliminate those foods you are intolerant too, you can replace these foods with alternative high protein sources, such as fish and chicken.
You could also go see your naturopathic doctor to get a food intolerance test.
This will be really good for you because it will test for any food allergies or intolerances that you may have.
That way you will know what foods your body can handle and which ones it can’t.
Some people also just have a hard time digesting any type of protein.
If this is you, you can also try supplementing with digestive enzymes.
Digestive enzyme provides the essential enzymes to help your body digest and metabolize the food you eat.
Often times when we cook food, the heat may destroy the natural enzymes found within the food.
Or if you’re eating processed foods, the enzymes have already been destroyed.
The lack of enzymes may be what’s causing your indigestion or gas.
We know a few people who have had really good results with taking digestive enzymes with water before their food.
Pairing certain foods together may also help stop the protein farts.
For example, pairing greens with eggs and meat may help you digest the protein better.
Pineapple can also be a helpful digestive enzyme for certain people with digestion issues.
You could also try pairing the eggs and meat with fermented foods high in probiotics such as sauerkraut and kimchi.
If you’re getting a lot of protein farts, you have to test things with your diet.
Try removing specific foods, one at a time, from your diet for a few weeks.
If the farts go away, you probably have an allergy or intolerance to that food.
If eliminating that food doesn’t stop the protein farts, add the food back in and eliminate another suspect food.
Although I don’t have serious problems with protein farts, Jessica calls me out every once in a while because I do get gassy when I eat certain types of pizza.
It’s not every time I eat pizza, but sometimes Jessica tells me I have to go sleep in the living room!
For me, I did some testing and discovered eating dairy and gluten is not friendly to my digestive system.
But for Jessica, she never “fluffs” because she’s a girl … smh.
