Today, after my roommate decided to become a vegetarian, her new food choices are making her pass deadly, nauseating gas all night. We have a busted window that won't open. I'm afraid I may not live to see tomorrow morning. FML

Still alive, OP?


The gas and bloating only lasts about a month or so. It's because your body is changing to a new kind of diet and the enzymes aren't yet used to digesting the new kind of food. The same thing happens when vegetarians start eating meat.

I take it she doesn't know much about vegetarian food then and is eating stuff that's bad for her or just generally gives gas anyway (like brussel sprouts). Give her a vegetarian cook book :D.

The extra fiber should account for the gas but not the smell. If she replaced tofu for everything in a meat heavy diet she will have gas and bad gas at that since her body isn't equipped to just jump right into digesting so much at a time.


She shouldn't combine acids and carbohydrates, that can lead to massive digestive problems. For example, no orange juice, lemon juice, grapefruit juice or vinegar at any meal that also includes high starches and sugars. Although rice is the only starch that doesn't cause gas. Perhaps she should have done a little more research.
