So... Last month I was 4# higher than I really wanted to be... it took a while but I finally started to get the numbers down 2#'s for a whole week.
Then I work my butt off over 4th of July weekend. Really didn't think I overdid it w/ calories out, etc. and was mildly surprised to see the scale creep back up.
This morning, I was SO bloated...from waist all the way up to my chest. It was bizzare and this happened a month or so ago too...was not happy with the
showing 5# higher than were I want to be... and then I stumbled on the subject heading.
YUP. I had baked beans for dinner last night. Bush's the kind with brown sugar added...
I barely ever eat baked beans. My BF commented on their commercial that he really liked Bush's baked beans. I'm at the store, walk buy them, read ingredients for wheat, none, so I put them in the cart.
Come dinner time.. was planning on preparing green beans, there was mold. ugh. Bring out the back up beans in a can....
FODMAPs are short chain carbohydrates and monosaccharides that are poorly absorbed in the small intestine, including fructans, galactans, fructose and polyols. The term is an acronym, deriving from "Fermentable, Oligo-, Di-, Mono-saccharides And Polyols".
While I don't normally have any IBS/IBD issues since removing wheat gluten, this could very well explain the extreme bloating I have. bugger
In case any of my friends out there have woke up to the overnight appearance of the michelin tire man staring back at them in the mirror, check out FODMAPs...
