Bloating is common: 1 in 10 Americans say they suffer from bloating regularly regardless of meal size. 26
Ugh, bloating, that discomfort you feel when your abdomen seems stretched, distended, tight, or just plain full – of gas, of food, of you’re not sure what!
To help prevent bloating, experts recommend:
- Avoiding overeating
- Eating more slowly and shunning straws, chewing gum, and hard sucking candies (to limit air-swallowing)
- Cutting down on fats in your everyday diet (they hang around in your digestive system longer) and carbonated beverages (sodas etc. put excess gas in the digestive system)
- Reducing stress (which can upset your digestive system and lead to excess gas production)
- Limiting common gas-causing foods like beans, lentils, artificial sweeteners, brussel sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, carrots, prunes, apricots, and dairy (if you’re lactose intolerant)26
You can also help say “bye-bye” to bloating by maintaining the beneficial balance of microorganisms in your digestive system.
By taking probiotics, you can nurture your natural bacterial colonies and support their growth, especially if they’ve been disrupted by antibiotics, illness, or other factors.
