Nutri and Bloating and Gas

I have found the secret to my food problem - soy.  Yup, soy is the problem.  I just placed my new order with 85%less soy.  I had to give up some of my favorites like the bars at lunch, but on the whole, I didn't want to give up the program.  They email me a soy percentage list of all their foods.  That was very helpful.  I can still havecereal and muffins for breakfast, cheesy potatoes for lunch with a nice salad and lots of dinners.  I feel better already.  I have lost 23 pounds and want to lose 10 more  then maintenance.

MAKE IT WORK, HAVE A SALAD WITH 1 OZ BLUE CHEESE IN IT.  HAVE ROASTED CAULIFLOWER AND GARLIC WITH LUNCH.  ANYONE INTERESTED I'LL GIVE YOU RECIPE.  Roast one head of caulifower cut in florets with 2 tablespoons freshly minced garlic.  Add 2 tablespoons olive oil (yes you can have that) mix all up, roast on shallow pan with salt and pepper for 15 minutes at 450 degree oven. Turn florets over and roast another 10 minutes.  Sprinkle with 1/3 cup parmesan cheese, BROIL for 2 to 3 minutes.  Serve.   Awesome, try it, Hari


Happy Mother's Day!!

That's interesting about the soy. I don't have the bloating but do have the gas. I will start paying attn to the soy content. Thanks for the post and good luck!

I am having horrible bloating, to the point of making a doctors appt for this week. It never occurred to me that I could be having a reaction to the NS food. :( I've been on a month without problems, but just started on my 2nd order that had the lunch candy bars.
Was there something you took to help with the bloating or did it finally go away. I'm in some serious discomfort, but no gas (thank goodness).

hari, glad you were able to find the cause of your trouble. I'd be in a heap of trouble, as I really eat a lot of soy!
IzzabellaJ - you may want to check on the amount of sugar alcohols you're eating (the bars tend to have quite a bit). These never bothered me, but DH has a serious bloating/gas reaction to them. If you call or email NS, they'll send you a list of what foods contain these.
