Your body should learn to deal with it, in at most a week or two. The enzymes in your gut that break down lactose are inducible, meaning that the more lactose you take in, the more of those enzymes your body makes, and the more lactose you can handle. Just takes a couple days for your body to catch up.
Quick science explanation if you care: lactose (the main sugar in milk) is actually make up of two smaller sugars stuck together. In order to digest and absorb lactose, your body has to split it into its component parts.
When you add a bunch of lactose to your diet, your body can’t keep up with splitting it, so you end up with a bunch of lactose in your lower intestines. The bacteria there go wild with all that sugar floating around, and you end up with gas.[/quote]
Heh, thanks for the explanation, it’s always good to understand why the body does what it does. Hopefully like you said, my body will adjust to the increase in lactose and I’ll stop ripping it up so much.
I mean, I don’t mind, but it’s hard to hang out with a girl if I gotta fart every 10 minutes and I’m sure the people in the office could do without the strong odor.
