    digestive aids?

    Anyone use any kind of probiotics/enzymes etc. either on or off cycle? I feel pretty bloated (not in a water weight way) and my gut is sticking out even though I still have ab definition. Feels like my digestion just isn't keeping up with my food intake. Anything that might help with this?

    Fiber and water decreases transit time. And not fiber supplements, get some fruits veggies and beans.

    yah I might be lacking in fruits and veggies

    having a hard enough time cramming down all this meat/rice/peanut butter etc, will definitely work on it though

    was kinda hoping for an easy way out that wouldn't require even more food, but that might be the best option


    on a related note my gut seems to be making alien noises, very odd

    Took me about 5 times to figure out what you ment, I literally thought you were talking about the disease "aids"

    lol no thank god

    Maybe there's a better name for what I'm referring to but I've usually heard them called "digestive aids", alot of them contain enzymes which are supposed to help break down food, just wondering if there's any evidence to back this up or if anyone has experience


    upping fiber in the meantime, will see if that helps

    i Have this same problem bro. I Bought Ginger root and acidophilus. Somewhat helped the bloat. The more I drink water the more I bloat. Beer? Soda? my waist size increases 2-3 inches. I'm fairly lean I have goo vascularity on my arms and chest. I have good abs but after I eat I'm huge. Lol. I think it's visceral fat. Like the fat around our organs. When we eat the food takes up volume and therefore pushes out and makes our stomachs bulge.
    Well thats what some guy told me on a diff forum. But if you figure something out lemme know. Bc his answer doesn;t make sense to me.

    I use probiotic drinks daily. Dannon probiotic yogurt shots. I think they boost the immune system too.

    yeah sounds pretty similar , when I'm lean my midsection is pretty small but as soon as I start bulking it gets way bigger even though I don't lose much definition

    Makes sense that all the food is taking up space in your stomach/intestines, but I definitely think it has something to do with storing more visceral fat as well


    Might pick up some probiotics though see if that helps, thanks for the suggestion ^

    I was having the same problem not to long ago. I started taking betaine HCL with pepsin in the middle of each meal and it got rid of the bloating in a couple weeks

    probitics are great but you might be MORE bloated the first week your on it and then your body will calm down.

    most bottles of probiotics say this on it. ive never experienced it. apparently the excess bloating and gas is the probiotic doing serious work in your gut for that 1st week.

    I use digestive enzymes from Vitamin shoppe, cheap and effective. diet full of veggis and fruits will help as will beans. Perhaps a colon cleanser might be beneficial to you also.

    helps produce stomach acid and break down protein, sounds kinda like what I need. Never heard of this before so repss

    what are some good probiotics? I'm not really a fan of yogurt, I'd go with the shots that tgb suggested but is there anything else out there?

    Yeah seems like there are pretty cheap, guess it couldn't hurt to grab some with my next supp. order. I think adding fiber/veggies has helped a bit already though. How does one do a colon cleanse and does it really work?
