Went to a funeral a while ago and tried fasting for a couple days beforehand.  I only drank water.  Digestively speaking, I felt fully evacuated and clean the entire time.  Yet, sure enough my signature fart smell became apparent to everyone around me.  Even I caught a few whiffs. 

 

At this point, I'm pretty much out of ideas.

I can totally relate to that. There are days when it seems that food does play a role in this and then there are days when it seems like it will appear no matter what. Foodmap does give some relief for me but it is far from stating that I can depend on this diet. Also who has the time to always prepare these meals so detailed and it ain’t cheap either.
Fasting wasn’t the answer for me as well

fasting can make the smell worse, especially in the short term. Theoretically fasting could help you smell better but that would be after your body has cleansed itself of all the bad stuff which could take weeks.  Also if you dont address the underlying issue it could come back. have you tried exercising to strengthen your pelvic floor muscles for improved continence?

 

You are not really suppose to do long fasts without doctors supervision.

Hey, what I have read leaking gas is normal, and smelly gas is caused by the bacteria in our gut, and starving the bacteria do not solves the problem, I just went through a couple of site which claims to provide the fart pills you can check - flatuscents.com and pilulepet.com for more info.

Has anyone tried these fart pills?   Sounds kind of like snake oil to me.

Fasting won't help because some foods ferment in your gut and may take months to completely get evecuated. Try low-fodmap diet(for a few months at least) and exercise religiously and it will get better while we all wait for an official treatment.
