I have been vegan for about half a year now, but the bloating and gas are still a problem. I've read that the body will get used to it after a certain time, but I think it should be better by now, shouldn't it? Thanks!
If a lot of your meals tend to contain beans of any sort, it can cause this issue. Reportedly, if you use the Mexican spice, Epazote (available on Amazon) when cooking your meal containing beans, you will see an improvement. I haven't tried it myself yet but I've bought some to test with and will update
Bloating on a vegetarian diet is usually caused by these factors:
- Having lot of raw (uncooked) food
- Eating foods high in protein at night, which doesn't allow it to get digested properly resulting in gas. (e.g. moong dal and other pulses)
- I'm not sure about this, but some people also recommend avoiding drinking water for at least 60 mins after a meal.
