Many people try to get rid of bloating. Indeed, it is sometimes painful and causes this unpleasant sensation of having a swollen stomach, feeling “heavy”.
Besides, it is even more annoying when we have gas or are constipated. Without understanding what can cause these inconveniences and without good advice, it can be difficult to fight against bloating. Worse, it can settle in the long run. At this point, it can be a source of significant inconvenience, in addition to causing health problems.
What is bloating?
To say it simply, bloating is due to a concentration of large amounts of gas in the intestine or stomach. It is for this reason why your belly is swollen. It is interesting to know the effects of diet in this unpleasant process.
What do you need to eat to get rid of bloating?
Bloating is due, in most cases, to ingredients consumed. These create a large amount of gas in your body. This gas comes mainly from the fermentation of some food. For example, foods that are too fat, too sweet or spicy, as well as sodas, alcohol or coffee irritate your digestive system and cause bloating.
Food to avoid:
– Starchy food / cereals / dairy products
– Some fruits and their juices (apples, figs, dates)
– Legumes family (beans, soybeans, lentils, beans)
– Onions family (garlic, onions, leeks)
– Root vegetables (beets, radishes)
– Red meat
– chewing gums
Food to banish in case of bloating:
– Crucifers (cabbage, kale, broccoli, cauliflower)
Should I stop eating those aliments to eliminate bloating?
Each person is different. Indeed, some sort of food will balloon some, but not necessarily others! It is, therefore, necessary to look for what foods cause bloating in your specific case.
For this, we recommend to remove a progressively certain type of food (not all together), and according to the effects noted, continue your research until you discover which foods do not match with you. Once done, do not consume it for a whole month then try to avoid them as much as possible. This does not mean that they should be removed from your diet, but must be consumed with moderation. Except, of course, if their simple consumption balloon you directly.
Our advice would be, if you can, to eliminate dairy products and grains. These are, unlike what you might think, very harmful to your body. Moreover, they are not such a good source of energy as it appears.
We would also avoid the majority of starchy foods (bread, pasta, potatoes, etc.). Remember cereals and legumes are also part of it. Nevertheless, you can continue to consume basmati rice, sweet potatoes or quinoa at a reasonable frequency. These tips will allow you, I hope, to have a healthy intestinal flora and gut. You will be better armed to fight effectively against bloating.
Changing my diet is it going to eliminate my bloating symptoms?
Diet is the key to good intestinal flora and a healthy gut. A good diet should allow you to no longer feel the disadvantages of bloating. However, sometimes you might have to clean up your body to get a good start. Imagine that your body is a rusty car that has trouble to work. Just because you are going to start paying attention to it does not mean that the “grime” will disappear on its own. You would have to first clean this car to allow it to work properly. It’s the same process for your body.
Have you ever heard about detox?
Detox is the most effective and natural way to cleanse your body and start on a sound basis. The goal is to eat in a specific way in order to eliminate toxins from your body. It also makes it possible to optimize the functions of the digestive organs such as your liver, pancreas, gallbladder, kidneys, and intestines.
