So my belly has been angry for about 5 days now.
First of all I had cramps â€“ no surprise this time of the month â€“ but that wasnâ€™t all. My belly felt big, bloated, and angry and I couldnâ€™t figure out why. There was a rumble in my jungle. During the flight, I could feel my stomach churning-churning-churning constantly and was having trouble falling and staying asleep because of it. Frank tried to lean on me at one point, but my angry belly was so tender that I had to send him toward the tank-top wearing, long-underarm-hair lady to his left. You may be thinking to yourself â€œJust GO Andreaâ€ but I tried thatâ€¦ there was nothing but air inside. As we were sitting in the second airport, Frank had a look and listen to my belly and he made a diagnosis â€“ no itâ€™s not hemoroids and no, Iâ€™m not pregnant. He asked if Iâ€™d eaten any fiber one bars, and of course I had (theyâ€™re like nectar of the gods). In fact, Iâ€™d had one or two every day for the past week. Iâ€™d been trying to take off a pound or two and fiber one always seems to help with that sort of effort. Well, we all know that fiber one bars make you gassy (I think Mike S – king of gas – found an article calling them gas bars or something) and Iâ€™ve always enjoyed that they allow me to have funny party â€œnoisesâ€ if you will but this was different. Apparently the type of angry belly gas is typical of fiber one eaters, and Iâ€™d just been lucky up until nowâ€¦ trouble.
Anyway, Iâ€™ve switched to Kashi Bars on Todd and Rebecca’s recommendations and am feeling pretty terrific. My big bloated belly even went away â€“ thank you Kashi!
