Basically, Ive been changing my diet and taking some digestive enzymes and a probiotic due to a leaky gut. I noticed right away my craving for fatty food diminished significantly and I am finding that I am generally less hungry. However...I have more gas than usual now, which I am not sure what to make of (is that a bad thing or a good thing) and Id like some advice on treating this matter. Thanks for your help.
Perfectly normal; very common when you add probiotics.
Have you looked into resistant starch at all?
I eat potatoes as a snack frequently and according to the Wikipedia page they are a resistant starch
Post your diet, it will help people give you better more specific advice.
Have you considered using Kefir? Supplement type probiotics are nowhere near as good and are expensive.
for sure, but they need to have cooled by the time you eat them
If the farting is not excessive/serious problem for you don't worry. Many good things (ie. majority of veggies) can make you fart.
Farting is okay, just a natural thing to do. Embrace it!
