    actually it's very simple -

    trapped wind happens and smells because your digestive system doesn't digest all veggies you eat. some of them like soya, pees and beans are a combination of protein and long starchy complicated carbs (more like wood) which are way too hard to digest, so they stay in your intestins rotting away.

    ever been to the moor? that's what happens in your guts: plants rott & fruits ferment to produce gases - sometimes methane or sulphur-hydrate (smells of bad eggs) - that's the bloating.

    i get bloated every time i eat fruit, rice, pasta, sweets, potatos in any form, bread, weet products, cereal, stuff that thickens in hot water and all of the above - so i cut them right out. never missed them and never suffered again. eating meat, some veg, cheese and eggs - no crap or fast food - it's great.



    also i don't belive i'll lose a pound on those pills - started 6th august 2008 - but my doctor insisted.
