If you have abdominal bloating and discomfort after eating, you may have non-celiac gluten sensitivity. This syndrome has only recently been described. It will soon be renamed for it has nothing to do with gluten.
When you eat too much carbs and sweets, you may start to grow the wrong type of bacteria in your colon. The bacteria may even extend up into the small intestine where bacteria do not normally grow. The bacteria cause the wall of the bowel to become leaky, leading to bloating, discomfort and alternating constipation & diarrhea–I am sure about all that–and perhaps to arthritis, "brain fog" and depression. I am not as sure about the latter claim. Google "leaky gut syndrome".
