What Foods Cause Gas?
Just about the time I get some trainer telling me that the ultimate solution for weight loss, muscle gain, or heaven knows what else a client might be trying to conquer, is to just eat more protein, I ask them if they have ever known a bodybuilder who has A LOT of gas. Fact is, most protein gorging muscle-types fart all the time. That is just funny if you happen to be an 8-year-old boy, but excessive gas can be your first clue that something is not okay.
Digestion is a complex and beautiful thing when things are working as designed. Gas occurs when digestion is compromised. Take the situation of excess protein for example. What happens is that undigested proteins pass into the large intestines where gut bacteria work on breaking them down. This process produces gas, and those farts smell bad. Likewise, if you do not digest fats well, then those extra fats enter into the large intestine and putrefy. This is another smelly fart.
If you happen to be someone who can fart without being detected because your gas does not smell bad, then your problem comes from difficulty digesting carbohydrates. Interesting thing about it all is that the worse you are at digesting a macro-nutrient, the more you crave it – simply because your body is not getting that nutrient into your blood stream.
There are also some foods that naturally give you gas. Beans are my favorite example. The story with beans is that they have evolved with a survival mechanism to inhibit digestion. If you do not go the trouble of removing those nutrient inhibitors , well, you know what is going to happen.
Soaking beans in water with a teaspoon of vinegar overnight will make those beans much more hospitable. If you don’t have time to soak, then the alternate technique is to boil your beans in salted water. I prefer the soaking method, because it just seems to do a better job.
