    Unfortunately I can't stick to it anymore lol.
    High protein, low carb. You don't have to cut all carbs out, it's just about making the better choice between complex and simple carbs. That and drinking plenty of water.
    Also maybe try some Metamucil?
    Where did you find this low GI diet? Im very interested!

    I took bits and pieces from the Body Trim Concept but with that you have to do a 3 day carb detox where you only eat protein. It made me feel sick!
    I basically ate a lot of fish, chicken and steak (fat cut off and cooked medium to well so I didn't kill all nutrients!) with mostly salad.
    The book tells you what veggies and fruit to steer clear from as some are only good in moderation.
    Also I didn't eat carbs after 6pm so they had time to break down before bed.

    It's a great concept, I just got lazy lol. You can pretty much google any low GI diet though and just customise it.

    What is Zone Paleo anyway?



    PALEO IS: EAT MEAT (preferably grassfed), EGGS (as close to chickens roaming in your backyard as you can get) and SEAFOOD (wild caught and smaller is better), VEGETABLES (eat for color - get a deep green like kale, and a bright red cabbage in the same week - also, look around - I bet you have no idea what's hiding in your produce section), SOME FRUIT (too much can simply yield different results than too little - as with most things - eat what's in season), LITTLE STARCH (yeah, and here we mean starches that come from root vegetable sources such as rutabagas, parsnips, carrots, beets, carrots, etc.NOTHING THAT COMES IN A BOX OR BAG!), NUTS and SEEDS (too many yields different results than just enough for energy and nuts and seeds that are high in omega-3 fatty acids - i.e. macadamia nuts, walnuts, flax, and hempseeds - are better), and NO SUGAR (seriously - if it absolutely kills you look into some not-so-horrible paleo sugar substitutes).

    ZONE is simply eating all of the above in proportions that balance the body's hormonal response to food. Your body composition (lean muscle to fat ratio) effects your performance and zone effects your body composition.


    Zone Diet: The Solution

    The Zone Diet is clinically proven to reverse cellular inflammation by maintaining the inflammatory hormones generated by the food we eat within a Zone that is not high, but not too low.
    The dietary program is conceptually simple. Simply divide your plate at every meal into three equal sections.
    On one-third of the plate put some low-fat protein that is no bigger or thicker than the palm of your hand. Then fill the other two-thirds of the plate with color carbohydrates (vegetables and fruits). Finally add a dash (that’s a small amount) of fat that is low in omega-6 and saturated fats such as olive oil.
    Your success in constructing a Zone meal is indicated by lack of hunger for the next four to six hours.
    Simple in concept, often difficult in execution because you have avoid many of foods that people love to eat (bread, pizza, pasta, potatoes, and rice). In addition, you have to maintain the appropriate balance of protein, carbohydrate and fat at every meal to maintain the hormonal balance to reduce cellular inflammation.

    Cut out all alcohol (yes it sucks) for a while.
    Drink 2 ltr of water a day.
    Cut out any fizzy drinks including soda water.
    Reduce carb intake, nothing crazy just cut down.
    Eat all bran in the morning with fruit e.g banana the stuff works!! After a few weeks on it my bloating went down. Yes it has carbs but some carbs are essential in any diet.
    Reduce calorie intake overall. 1500 cals a day is a good place to start.
    Remember weight loss is a gradual thing, it takes time and effort.
    Walk walk walk can't express that enough, excerise alone helps with bloating getting even 30 min at a decent pace e.g your puffing can help bloating and assist weight loss. But remember the calories!

    Good luck.
    I would have to agree with this, provided you're certain you aren't celiac or have any intolerances.

    I am quite small so a bloat sticks out like a sore thumb on me and it's always when I've relaxed on eating a high fobre diet.

    All Bran is the hisghest fibre cereal you can eat, have it with blueberries which are also high in fibre. As well as pears, artichoke, apples.

    Also to add to Janesmum's list is chewing gum and other things that contain artificial sweeteners.

    And BerylsMum I forgot about your bloating problems, I hope everything turned out to be okay. I was thinking of you x

    Ive done Bodytrim!! I was looking great after I lost about 8 kilos but I couldnt keep it up. With my work hours and the having to eat protein every 3 hours it got a bit much for me..I dont like that much protein haha

    The Paleo diet sounds interesting..I might have to do a bit of research on it. Thanks for the info ladies!

    My mother has terrible bloating and has for a long time. Her diet is very healthy, and she's tried a number of things.

    She's seeing a naturopath now, and has been having Apple Cider Vinegar made up kinda like tea (so a warm drink really). It's seriously disgusting and I don't know how the hell she gets it down, but her bloating has really eased off! It's the only thing she's tried that's worked, and she's tried a lot of things over the years. You have to get one with "mother" in it though (it will say if it's got this on the bottle).
