I've been low carbing for about 5 - 6 weeks, been quite strict, only thing I've had is twice a day frothed milk in my coffee (I know!)

I've lost half a stone and felt great. Last couple of days however I've been a bit stressed (separating from husband) and had a few drinks - no mixers, just spirits on ice - and yesterday dd brought home chocolate from school trip, which I felt I had to eat as it was a gift from her.

Today I have a huge round football stomach! Why? is it just the chocolate?

I'll get back in the zone tomorrow but is there anything I can do now to get rid of it?

Is it wind. Trapped and painful. Bicarbonate of soda or colpermin helps to release it.

If its caused by fluid retention it could be if you've eaten wheat.
