Flax and Stomach Aches

Hi guys,

I am currently on the V-diet. Its been around 2 weeks. When I consume shakes in the evenings I tend to get stomach pains. I have no idea what is causing this. It may be the 2 table spoons of flax. I have no idea. I was hoping that somebody else might be able to shed some light.

Thanks.

It’s quite possible that you don’t digest flax well. With me, it’s the oil. Gives me bad bloating and putrid, tear inducing gas. I have the same prob with olive oil, but sesame, and walnut oil aren’t a problem. Switch up your oils and see what works.
