Before I ask my question, I want to ask: What is a mosterizer that I can find in a Vitamin Shoppe for really dry skin, like skin just doesn't?.

My main question is: Hi friends!.

Thanks to everyone on these boards, they've been a great resource. Its my first week on Nutrisystem and I need some advice. I've experienced what some like to call the nutri-toots and I'm okay with that, but I have a dance class tonight and I want to eat the least offensive foods all day long to prepare. And I might have a date in the future, so in general this will be good to know! So can you give me a list? What in your experience are the least gassy lunch and dinner foods? Thanks in advance!..

Welcome to the land of NutriToots....

Some people get them, some don't...some don't get them at first, but they appear later in the program...some never get them, some never lose them..

It is an Urban Myth that the stock in Beano and Gas-X goes up with every NutriSystem order...LOL.

Here is what the Dietitians have answered in the past about this topic:.

Sometimes people experience gastrointestinal discomfort when changing their eating habits. Our food has approximately 23-26 grams of fiber which follows the RDA of 25-30 grams. An increase of fiber in the diet can cause gas and bloating. To help minimize these problems, you could use cooked vegetables instead of raw. The cooking process will help eliminate some of the fiber content. You should also eliminate gas producing vegetables like legumes, cabbage and dense leafy greens.

You can gradually increase the fiber back into your diet as tolerated until your body adapts..

And, it could be a reaction to the soy and artificial sweeteners, also..

Just remember, this, too, shall pass...

I am no dietician, but only offer what I would do or eat if I had a special event coming up and didnt want to be gassy..

Naturally, avoid the bean dishes like the bean soups and soups with beans at lunch (which there are many), the chili, beef and bean and pasta fagoili and tacos for dinner.

I DON'T get gas from the italian foods like the ravioli, lasagna, tortellini and the dishes like chicken noodle soup, ala king, etc. the chicken and tuna salad also seem good high protien low fiber choices.

The pancakes seem a good breakfast choice and the maybe the eggs (some people dont tolerate well).

The chicken or beef patty with your own bread choice seems safe, as do the mashed potatos for lunch and meatloaf / mashed potatoes for dinner. The mac and cheese and mac and cheese with beef, maybe?.

The biscotti or cocoa for dessert? how about the micro cakes?.

Also, for your grocery foods, you want to avoid adding MORE fiber on a special day. Like fruit with no skin/peel. Choose a banana over a apple for example. And avoid the crusteacous (sp) veggies that are known to cause gas like broccili, cabbage, cauliflower, carrots, etc. Small salad or just some salad toppings? Cooking all the veggies well and adding beano or a little pinch of baking soda will cut a lot of the gas. Clearly, not recommending doing this every day as you lose a lot of vitamins when you lose the fiber, but for one or two days, a good idea.

Also, the medicines with simethocone (sp) ike Gas-X really work great, and have no side effects so you could even take some a few hours before your event just in case.

Good Luck!..

HAHAHA! This post seriously made my day. I know your *gassy* pain and found myself wondering the same!..

Try reading the package for the least amount of fiber and stick with that on those days. Fiber is gassy. Also I have found that iceberg lettuce bothers me,but romain seems to be fine. I have also heard that eating fruit after a meal can cause a problem,so if you opt for fruit at dinner,try eating it first. Hope this helps...
