Timothy J. Esslinger reacted to BryBro63 in Super Farts from dairy and beans
It's absolutely normal, Mr. Esslinger...I had the same issues at one point with anything in the dairy family. To help, you can indeed take the lactaid pills or something similar to it. I myself took the generic version at first to see if I could handle it...they worked so well that I stuck with them, and now I don't need them as mush now that I'm 6 months post-op. Now my issue is I get gas from taking Fiber chews, which I need to combat minor constipation...a small price to pay for the relief that I'm getting!
Congrats on your surgery, and I wish you the best of losing!!!

Timmo I so needed a chuckle today and love the "franken-liner". Thank you. I have exhausted my supply of pads with the same problem, and no longer have these issues so I am here to tell you it does get better. The biggest problem for me has been constipation so that Immodium might be another problem. I used to think someone should invent a "cork" for this problem. You will get past this I promise. Women are known to be great at improvising and I know that you will come up with something good. I wish you the best!

I've been eating "chip ins" on occasion. They are kind of like tortilla chips but also popcorn-ish...hard to describe. They are salty and crunchy. You get 20 for 120 calories. I eat 10. Perfect little snack to curb my chip and cracker cravings. I had the sleeve, so no malabsorbtion, so I can't attest to the undigested fats problem you are having with the duodenal switch.

Pepperidge Farm cracker chips. They come in a few different flavors (bbq, chilli lime, three cheese, sour cream and cheese). They are baked and an ounce (which is quite a lot because they're light) is 130 calories and only 4g of fat.

I really enjoy Wheat Thins Fiber Selects crackers. Garden vegetable is the only flavor I've seen. I have five of them in the evening, for 40 calories, and I usually have a light laughing cow or a little red pepper hummus with them. I also really love the Parmesan garlic triscuit thin crisis, but find them slightly less filling due to lower fiber content. Hope you enjoy!
