Watching Omloop Het Nieuwsblad and having an espresso. If it was lunchtime, I'd be having frites, too.

Watching UPS tracking on a bike part and having my morning coffee.

Old age also decreases digestive efficiency. I spend most of my evenings in a state of noisy, uncomfortable, and occasionally malodorous, inflation.

Probably normal. Gas has been studied extensively. Some comes from aerophagia (swallowing air) but most comes from fermentation in the colon. Best advice is chew with your mouth closed. Avoid foods that really make it bad (Google the low FODMAP diet for a list of usual suspects to avoid). You can also use an enzyme like beano. There could be a role for probiotics to tweak your flora, but the evidence for this is variable and thus YMMV.

It took me 4 tries at guessing the second position letter after getting 1,3,4,5 the last time we had a word with this 1,3,4,5.

I know I get pretty gassy when I hit the Whole Foods hot bar and go a little heavy on the cauliflower and Brussels sprouts.

I try to adhere to a FODMAP diet, but even then, I have all of the normal gastro problems. At first, it seemed to help a lot but over time, things seem to be gas as always.

All of my docs pretty much don't really seem to care. Even my gastroenterologist just shrugs it off like it is what it is; deal with it.

Heidi is 20 and had her first BF at 16. This is her third I think but first since HS.

My daughter started dating her now fiance during her freshman year in college. That's been about 7 years ago.

Question: Do vegans suffer from a lot of gas problems? Serious question.

I'm not purely vegan, but Tums is in my food pyramid. I think a lot of that has to do with coffee, which I am again considering giving up. I'm blaming it on the covid. It affects me differently now than it did before, and not in a good way. I have difficulty waking up with, or without the coffee.

We are almost halfway through our stay here and its been a good mix of seeing our daughter, friends, sights, and cycling.

Mount Wilson Road is shaded and could have ice. You'll know when climbing it. If it's dry it's still sketchy coming back down but it's spectacular.

Lplo.
Actually not. I was looking for my post and, not finding it, assumed I was locked out. When in reality it is a simple case of the post not being posted. Prolly because I failed to log back in after the third power outage of the morning. We just had our fourth.

Strongly exercise-related in my case and I've tried the probiotics. They help slightly with the diarrhea.

Ooh, I see the Ecuador's National Road Champs race is up on the d/l site. Might have to check that one out.

datlas 02-26-22 10:47 AM

Morning donut walk with mrs datlas. I think we ate more calories in donuts than we burned on the walk.

I will be careful and turn back at any signs of ice on the road.

By the age of 20, Mrs. GeneJockey and I had already broken up after an intense 1 1/2 year relationship, followed up by a number of 'rematch' encounters.

10 years later she proposed.
