14. Throw out the Sugar substitutes
Sugar substitutes such as xylitol, manitol, maltitol, isomalt, lactitol, mannitol, erythritol tend to be found in sweet-tasting products marketed as low-calorie, low-carb or sugar-free such as gum, cookies, snack bars, hard candy and flavored water beverages. While it does help you cut back on calories, it remains longer in your digestive tract where it is broken down and fermented by bacteria, playing havoc with your gut. The result can be excessive gas, abdominal distention, bloating and even diarrhea.
