Ok this is a really weird question. Maybe it's just me. :o

But I've noticed that I have way way way less gas on Atkins then when I was before. I ate a piece of birthday cake (yeah I know) and immediately I had gas for half the day. Is this an unknown side effect or has anyone else noticed it? Maybe dad's right and I have a wheat sensitivity.

Its an interesting question. I often wonder what would happen to me if I ate something off plan since its been 4+ years since I've eaten any bread, potatoes, pasta, rice, white flour or sugar:idea:

Your Dad could very well be right, my Mom in gluten intolerant and suffers with stomach distress greatly if she eats something she shouldn't.
