Good question 49barefood. Bearsmom has a good suggestion. As for how fast foods can cause bloating, it really depends on the food. Fiberous foods may take some time to fully be converted to bacterial overgrowth and gas – up to 24 hrs. More rapidly fermentable foods – rice, potatoes, sugars, etc., unless fully broken down and absorbed could give rise to bloating in less than an hour depending on your rate of stomach emptying and motility.
