I have recently tried Kefir and love the taste of it. Unfortunately it doesn't agree with me and makes me uncomfortably bloated - no that's an understatement - ABNORMALLY bloated. Literally my lower belly will pop out when I take kefir.
So I'm wondering what is going on. I stopped for a week or two and just bought a new bottle of it because I couldn't resist..especially when everyone raves about it. But it's happening again.
This bloating literally affects all parts of my body, even my face puffs up and I have gained weight from it - maybe from water retention? But the 2 weeks I didnt take it, I lost the weight again but only because I went on a diet - otherwise I wouldn't have lost it.
Anyways, does this mean I'm allergic to it because I am having such adverse reactions? I have NO problem with milk or yogurt. This has actually stumped me and made me quite sad if I can't eat this stuff without major bloating and water retention and weight gain.
Anyone come across the same problem?
