I only had that problem once, thank goodness! (of course once is one time too many, lol) The trick, for me, is to make sure I don't eat anything at least 3 hrs. prior to my class. My Wednesday classes are at 5:30 pm, so I eat dinner afterwards. The 7 pm classes on Tuesdays & Thursdays is a bit trickier because I don't want to eat a big dinner after 8 pm. I have a bigger lunch those days and sometimes small snack to tie me over and then have a smaller dinner, like just a salad, when I get home.

It's not just Zumba for me...it's everyday day. At home, work, the gym wherever!!! Some days are worse than others. I've spoken to my Dr. about it, and he believes that it's my fiber intake/ However, I don't believe that I eat that much fiber. Years ago, I read an article that said that the average healthy person passes gas 14 times a day. I am proud to admit...I am "very healthy". (I really wonder how true that statement is :-))

OK you asked for it since you looked but I know I can ask here..
Does anyone else get gassy when doing Zumba? I used to do yoga (until I dislocated my shoulder and the doc told me not do to do yoga anymore) and read it was common to get gassy just based on your movements alone and basically pushing out the gas by the poses - but that's yoga, this is Zumba. Does anyone else get that way??
I do the videos at home btw so I don't gross anyone out at class!
