Abdominal bloating is a condition in which the abdomen feels uncomfortably full and gaseous, and may also be visibly swollen (distended). Bloating is a common complaint among both adults and children.
We’re not talking about extra pounds of stomach fat here. We’re talking about the temporary abdominal distention that plagues most everyone from time to time.
Many people suffer from bloating. It can be very uncomfortable. Luckily, there are several ways that you can change your diet or lifestyle to improve or eliminate it. If these solutions don’t help, consult a doctor for advice.
1. Avoid gassy fruits and vegetables.
You can replace them with other healthy fruits and vegetables that won’t irritate your digestion and cause painful bloating. Also the regular consumption of industrially made biscuits may cause bloating, as they contain very much of sugar plus hardened heat-resistant fats like palm oil. This combination of sugar plus too much fat may change your intestinal microflora to worse. >Reduce the consumption of this and look, if you are feeling better. The following foods often produce gas when digested:
Cabbage, brussels sprouts, cauliflower, broccoli, beans, lettuce, onions, apples, peaches, pears.
2. Don’t drastically increase your fibre intake
A high-fiber diet is good for your digestive system, lowers cholesterol and blood sugar, and helps you maintain a healthy weight. But for some, it’s also the root cause of bloating. Our bodies can only handle so much fiber, and that amount varies per individual.
While fiber is excellent for weight loss, too much can make you feel (and look) large and uncomfortable. Increase your fiber intake slowly, and monitor how your body reacts. There’s a good chance you’ll reach a point where you need to back off, and as you add in fiber, also make sure you’re adding in water to push the fiber through—your body doesn’t deal with dehydration and roughage very well.
3. Take a lot of water.
It cannot be over emphasized the importance of water to the health, especially when it comes to flushing out unwanted toxins and keeping you from feeling dehydrated.
