Extensive Gas after juicing
I have just started juicing making a combination of two drinks which I alternate each day; Drink 1 = 2 carrots, 1 small beetroot, 1 apple, 1/2 lemon and some ginger; Drink 2= 1 small avocado, 1 lemon, 2 small handfuls of kale and a sprig of oregano, taken first thing on a morning on an empty stomach as advised, no more than 200 ml a day. Within a few hours I become very bloated with gas which continues all day, is very foul smelling and uncomfortable. I eat am eating normal meals as well. I would like to ask why this is happening please? Is there anything I can do to stop this as I would like to continue juicing as it makes me feel great (apart from the anti-social gas friend). Any help would be much appreciated.Thank you

Re: Extensive Gas after juicing
I have owned several juicers non of which can juice an avocado. What kind of juicers do you own? If you are having the feeling you mentioned you may have bad bacteria reacting to the cleansing effects of something good coming into the body and if you keep juicing it will eventually get better as the body gets cleaner and healthier.
