I go to gym often and I require a high-protein diet but I also experience bloating issues so my appetite is pretty poor. What are some practical solutions and suggestions for me?

If your high protein diet has resulted in elimination or reduction of carbohydrates, and especially fiber, you could be experiencing a form of constipation. Bloating is a symptom of this.

Review your diet to ensure you are not over-consuming protein; 1 g per kg is the most anyone needs, including elite athletes. Make certain you are getting enough fiber. Men need approx 30 g per day and women need about 25 g per day.

If you are counting carbs, make sure the carbs are "net", i.e. total grams carbohydrates minus grams of fiber. Low net carb foods include broccoli, artichoke and avocados.

Once the bloating goes away, your appetite should return. Give it two weeks, and if the problem has not resolved, see your doctor.
