Bloated?

Very often, you may feel a bloated or inflated feeling in your stomach, sometimes accompanied with belching or flatulence or the need to pass gas. If the extent of gas in your stomach is far too much for it to handle, you might wind up feeling pain. 

Today's post is a way for you to know how to reduce stomach bloating on your own. 


Regularise Bowel Movement: It is sometimes necessary to regularize your bowel movement, as pain due to bloating may be resolved by a visit to the toilet. What may appear to be gas may just be ignored bowel movement. 

Eat right: Certain foods like cabbages, cauliflowers, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, baked beans and carbonated drinks may lead to the formation of gas when digested. Similarly, fatty foods can also cause bloating. For some people, legumes can also raise the extent of gas in the body and lead to bloating.

Go easy on Fibres: True, that fibre-rich foods can aid digestion. While that is a plus, however, fibres are known to produce gas in large volumes upon digestion. Use fibres in your diet, but be sure not to pile up your plate with too much of them. 

Sodium woes: The presence of sodium in food in large quantities is another reason why bloating occurs. Eat foods that have low sodium content: fresh fruits and vegetables and roasted meat are some good examples. Avoid canned soups because they contain a large amount of sodium. 

Lessen the Lactic! Milk and milk products containing lactic acid compounds can  produce gas on digestion. Non-frozen yogurts and aged cheeses are safe options, though.
