can't.fight.the.bloat!

I'm thin and in shape (I do Crossfit 5-6 times a week) buuut every freaking late afternoon my stomach bloats up huge and I look pregnant.

My husband has a gig tonight and I'd like to look good (need to feel good about myself around those young chicks fawning all over him haha.)

I can't figure out what's causing it- so I need ideas on how to fight it before it pops up today. Any ideas? HALP!

I'm the same way. I started drinking a probiotic drink every day at noon. That seems to help a lot. Good luck.

Is it a specific probiotic? I take acidophilus every night before bed but maybe I need to take it earlier?

This. I take the pills. They are amazing. $16 on amazon for 90 days.

What time of day do you take them? I use 2 billion cell acidophilus at night but I wonder if I should adjust the time I'm taking them

How much? Do you do 1 billion? Take it at least an hour before eating dinner. That's what has worked best for me. Also, I make sure I get liquid probiotics that have to stay refrigerated. They seem to work better than the pill form.

I take 1 billion around 10am and 1 billion at 3pm before dinner.

I take the 2 billion. And I take enzymes with every meal because I have issues digesting. I'll try taking the acidophilus more often and around meals. Thanks!

No idea. I usually only bloat when I'm on my period or eat too much.

Lucky bish! I work so hard on my body... it pisses me off that it all appears worthless in my mid section :(
