I will look into the FODMAP an give it a try. Right now I eat no bread, nothing with soy in it, no peanut products, sugar or diary so I am familiar with restriction. Thanks for your response.

Hi Kelsey

Thanks for your response and the link to the other posts. My Doctor has
done ultrasounds, blood work and tested for Plyori.
She has referred me to a GI specialist but the appointment is still months
away. I also tried medicine for acid reflux but it did not help.
I am very fit and healthy except this. I may try another naturopath but it
is odd that the first naturopaths suggestions put me in this position ( or
brought something to light).

9 months ago I saw a Naturopath who had me make some big changes to my diet; adding soy, whey, increased protein,healthy fats, greatly increased protein. After about a week on new diet my belly started to bloat and despite many elimination diets and doctors visits I have a 20 pound (almost overnight) weight gain and I cannot tolerate diary and have now been diagnosed with soy allergy.
Even with a very careful diet I am unable to get rid of my bloat.My stomach is distended in upper abdomen and looks like I am carrying a basketball. I had to buy an entire new wardrobe and it is really discouraging to carry this around.
I do not really have other symptoms other than bloat. Anyone have experience with this?
