28 Ways to Beat Bloating & Banish Your Belly

8. No more gassy veggies?

How to beat bloating tip: Vegetables that can cause bloat  are legumes and cruciferous vegetables.

Unfortunately, a lot of healthy foods can cause bloating. Raffinose found in many vegetables is an indigestible carb will cause you to expand like a Michilin Man. Humans do not possess the enzyme needed to break down this complex carbohydrate, but the gas-producing bacteria that live in our colon do. In the process of breaking down this carbohydrate, the bacteria release carbon dioxide, methane and/ or hydrogen. Basically, the carbohydrate ferments in your colon, producing gas and intestinal distress, though people are affected to varying degrees. Vegetables that’ll bloat you are legumes and cruciferous vegetables, which include:

  • Beans
  • Broccoli
  • Brussels sprouts
  • Cabbage
  • Cauliflower
  • Lettuce

If you like eating these healthy foods and want to continue eating them (as you should!), supplement with an over-the-counter digestive aid such as “Beano”, which contains that missing enzyme. This allows you to break down the indigestible carbohydrate before those pesky, gas-producing bacteria in your gut can get their hands on it. Ergo, less (or no) gas!

Eating when you’re stressed or on the run, it can interfere with digestion
