Alright this is sort of embarrassing to mention, but it has gone on far too long.

I have really bad gas, and not enough bowel movements. I don't know what I should do about it either, I've look some things up on the internet but I'm not sure what I should trust.

I have more faith in MDCers and their knowledgeable ways...

I've read that cutting out dairy could this true? What else can I do?

Also do you have any books that you would recommend reading on healthy eating, or anything pertaining to my situation?

Your help is greatly appreciated!

magnesium can help with constipation, so can probiotics.
With excessive gas and constipation, you could be looking at a food intolerance. have you tried keeping a food journal to see if a particular food makes it worse?
