Bye Bye Bloat

It may come to your surprise that some of the healthiest foods are causing you to feel bloated. It is said that certain vegetables may be causing inflammation in your body if not eaten in moderation. These vegetables contain a sugar that remains undigested until it is fermented by bacteria, which causes a build up of gas in the gut. Other foods contain sugar and fiber that are tough for the body to absorb. Listed below are the best and worst foods for bloating. The items under the “worst” section may still have health benefits. These may still be enjoyed in moderation but paired with other anti-inflammatory foods to balance out your diet.
Best:
  • Cucumbers
  • Bananas
  • Papaya
  • Asparagus
  • Fennel seeds
  • Ginger
  • Peppermint & Camomile Tea
Worst:
  • Kale
  • Broccoli
  • Cabbage
  • Lentils
  • Legumes
  • Soybeans
  • Apples
  • Dairy
Beat the bloat with some simple lifestyle changes as well! Incorporating exercise into your routine can really combat inflammation. High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT), yoga, and other cardio exercises can help regulate your digestive system and make you feel better than ever. Also, getting on a regulated sleep schedule will assist in digestion and elimination. Be sure to drink the recommended amount of water a day along with your daily dose of probiotics!
