5 Tips To Fight The Bloat

Bloating (AKA food baby) is the worst way to end a nice meal shared with your partner, family or friends. We’d all love to prevent it, but unfortunately bloating comes hand in hand with cheat day. Let’s face it, there’s no chance anything is going to come between you and that mouthwatering slice of chocolate sufflé!

Bloating occurs when gas is produced from the consumption of food and liquid. For some, gas is not easily absorbed throughout the body, causing slight discomfort and resulting in a visibly swollen stomach. But not all hope is lost. There are plenty of natural remedies that can assist in the prevention of belly bloating!

Kale, Broccoli and Cabbage all contain a sugar that does not digest as fast as other vegetables. The bacteria ferments produce gas, leaving you to feel uncomfortable and sick. However, our green bean lovers are in luck! By simply maintaining a consistent vegetable consumption, you can develop a strong digestive system, enabling you to eat as many greens as your heart desires.

Drink Water

Stay away from sugary carbonated drinks that fill up your body with unnecessary gas. Water dilutes the gas and acts as an aid to digest your meal faster through your stomach and colon. The requirement for an average person is 6-7 glasses of water. You may as well start now.

 

milkAvoid Dairy

This may come as bad news to some, but if you feel slightly gassy or nauseous after eating a few slices of cheese, you may be lactose intolerant. This means that your body lacks the necessary enzymes that break down lactose (sugar in the dairy products we consume).

Bloating can occur when there is a hormonal shift during the menstrual cycle, causing a feeling of overall puffiness and discomfort. Eating potassium-rich foods such as fruits and vegetables will minimise bloating and keep your digestive system strong.

 

Apples

ApplesAn apple a day does keep the doctor away, but, it can cause unnecessary bloating. Apples contain fructose and sugars that the body sometimes cannot tolerate. The result: of course, bloating.

Apples are extremely good for you as one contains 4.5 grams of protein and 10% of your vitamin c requirement. Editor of Health, Cynthia Sass says, “Eating apples specifically has been linked to a lower risk of heart disease and respiratory problems, including asthma, bronchitis, and emphysema.” Eating them in moderation will help prevent such symptoms.
