I have similar experiences - "treating" myself to foods that make me feel awful later. I had some french fries and a small hamburger from Wendy's the other night - augh, augh, augh. Now I remember why I stay away from that!

I did see my doctor on Thursday and he suggested to take even the whole grains off for a week and then add one type at a time to see if we can find exactly what the issue is.

It does seem kind of odd that you’re still feeling the effects 5 days later. I know that white carbs do NOT sit well with me either though. If we go out for pizza with friends (maybe 1-2 times a year, if that), I’m gassy, bloated and just feel downright terrible the rest of the night and usually some of the next day. In our home we are used to eating 100% ALL whole grains. It does seem odd that you’re feeling it for so long. I wonder if you have something else going on too. Were there any other foods that you had added back in “in moderation?”

I didn't make a conscious choice to take milk out of my eating routine, but it just kindof happened. A couple of times recently I had a small glass of milk and my stomach felt bloated after, with minor cramping. This could be a causal relationship, incidental, direct, indirect, coincidence, placebo, or the chocolate chip cookies that came with the milk. Regardless, milk is pretty much off the menu for me.

But not the cookies :)

You should probably see a doctor. But there is no reason to be eating those heavily processed white breads anymore. Get whole grain whole wheat, so much more flavor and it's better for you!

I would talk to a doctor or nutritionist. I'm sure they'd be able to take a look at your history and give you a better idea of what's going on.

I gave up milk (replacing it with almond milk and a supplement) on the possibility that it was aggravating allergies, and after a month off of it I had a glass and immediately had cramps. I also reduced wheat products due to IBS and once off I noticed I could only have a slice or two of bread once every for or five days comfortably.

On my quest to eat a more healthy diet, I decided to not eat refined carbohydrates. So no white bread, pasta, and the like. It worked quite well for losing weight. Now that I am in "Maintenance" I have started try to eat in "moderation". I am finding out that those two words are the enemy. I ate one sandwich with white bread on Monday and I am still feeling the effects Friday morning. Gas, bloating, you name it. From one sandwich?? I just do not think that refined grains are good for me. Does anyone have foods that they just cannot eat anymore?
