Having Crohn's has some super fun side effects (insert sarcastic voice). My fave? The bloat. Now, I'm not talking any old bloat. This bloat makes you look like you're 6 months pregnant and allows for NO sucking it in. It doesn't matter if you're at yor goal weight, just ran 5 miles a day ago or if you're 10 lbs up and only ran 2- it happens anyway.
It usually happens when you're stricture (intestinal narrowing due to scars and inflammation) is acting up and you're dealing with a partial obstruction. Or if you have too much sugar, or fiber... #whoopsy and of you do you Humira shot in the wrong spot in your belly?? Fuhgetaboutit!!! That belly is hanging OUT and it don't care who sees it!!
I DO have to say that for days like these I am EXTREMELY grateful for Shakeology!!! 2 a day of those babies and this bloat will be gone in no time!
So no, no, I'm not pregnant. Thanks for asking - I just have Crohn's
