What are you eating that's different this week? Whatever it is, drop it.

Hi JAG. I'd agree with BW, if you've changed something up recently. Are you still eating the sauerkraut? There might be a micro-organism in it that just isn't making your gut happy. You could try building up a tolerance to it slowly, but when that happened to me with a batch of homemade kefir, I had to (figuratively) swallow my frugality and toss it.

I don't know how old you are or what "stage of life" you're in, but one of my worst symptoms of messed-up hormones was extreme bloating and constipation. I was 'recovering' from getting off Depo-Provera, and that's actually what led me to LC eating in the first place. It seems weird to me that our hormones can cause that much havoc to our guts, but it can.

Best of luck finding a solution.

I've cut out everything I can think of, even my multivitamin. The only thing I forgot until just now is the greek yogurt. I haven't been eating much of it, only about 1/4 cup, but I will try cutting that out as well tomorrow.
I really appreciate all your support, suggestions, and encouragement! Thank you all.
