Dilemma: too much fiber in my diet.
For breakfast and typically in the afternoon I have the following meal.
2 cups oatmeal, 3tbsp milled flaxseed, 2/3-1cup frozen berries, cinnamon, protein source (whey or can of tuna).
This meal alone is about 30g fiber, and I typically eat it twice a day. I also have lots of veggies throughout the day (usually frozen broccoli and corn, or fresh carrots and celery. I also eat lots of nut products, which again has a decent amount of fiber.
My problem is that all of this fiber causes me to have gas. Lots of gas. I might not even care so much, but I've got my girlfriend and a workout partner to worry about (I can't remember the last time I squated and didn't fart at least once during my sets).
I'm asking for suggestions as to a carb source or meal I could replace the bowl of oatmeal with. These two meals provide about 1/2-2/3 of my daily carb intake. The rest comes primarily from my PWO shake and veggies/fruit. I figure I could replace the milled flaxseed with the oil variety, but I'm stuck as to a healthy replacement or addition of high-density carbs to my diet other than oats.
Other things to consider: I eat oats cold--just add water and mix in ingredients. Not sure if this would matter much as far as digestion and gas. Also, anyone have experience with Beano or similar gas suppresor? I am lactose intolerant, so dairy is out, and the lactose-free stuff is way too expensive for me to consume regularly.
Thanks for any suggestions.
