Question about veggies... Mrs. Potato Dick Madagascar 20356 posts
27th Mar '13

Is it just me and my husband... or do green veggies make you gassy as hell. OMG IT'S SO FREAKING BAD.



I looooove asparagus, broccoli, brussel sprouts, and kale... but they all kill my stomach. I literally fart every couple of minutes a few hours after eating these foods. I crop dust like a mother f****r at work.



Is there anything I can do to help this? Or am I gonna be stuck taking Bean-O every time I want to eat some veggies?

I think green veggies make almost everyone gassy. You could try taking some beano or gas-x when you eat.

Veggies, especially green ones, are supposed to cause gas. :p
Some just aren't prone to really getting it. I know I don't. Gax-X I hear works great though.

Hahaha oh god, when I eat this broccoli salad stuff....I rip ass sooo damn bad after eating it lmfao. Or if I go out to eat at Soup Plantation (it is called sweet tomatoes in other places) after I am done eating at that place, I have gas like no other hahaha.

Sooooo lame. I feel so nasty farting literally hundreds of times per day. LOL. I ate an entire bunch of asparagus for dinner the other night. The next day was awful.

This made me laugh so hard. Yes, it's not just you. Greens tend to do that to people. I had to lay off of them while breast feeding because they would give LO such bad gas that I would throw up at the smell!

Same thing happens to me, and terribly! I will be farting every 2 minutes all day after eating veggies, it sucks lol. Especially since you are supposed to eat them every day, I don't want to be ripping ass all day every day though!

Not me, thankfully! lol If I eat something bad or high in sodium on the other hand, I'm a farting fool.
