Let’s talk about something not often mentioned in those pretty fashion magazines: gas and bloating. It doesn’t sound very appealing, but did you know that most people “play the tuba” between 12 to 25 times per day? If you are looking at your hubby you are probably thinking “Oh, please, it’s way more than that!” and you would be right. For some people, it is far more than that, mostly due to the foods they eat.

What if we were to tell you that you could avoid a lot of that distended tummy, those uncomfortable gassy feelings, and have a better smelling bedroom tonight? It’s not as hard as you think.


Foods to Avoid

Broccoli, kale, and cabbage are among some of the worst offenders. The main problem is that too many of us only eat these foods occasionally. When we eat them fairly regularly, the body adjusts and is less prone to bloating and gas. So don’t give up on these greens – in fact, just the opposite – you need to eat more so that your body becomes accustomed to them.

Beans, lentils, soybeans, and peas are more foods that tend to cause bloat. Try combining these foods with rice or quinoa. These foods will help your body digest the legumes without making you so bloated and gassy.

For those who are lactose intolerant, dairy is another source of gas. If you feel bloated after just a few slices of cheese or a half a glass of milk, you are most likely lactose intolerant and you will need to avoid these foods.

You should also limit your sodium intake. Salt causes you to retain water, which leads to bloat. Think twice before eating processed foods as most of them contain high levels of sodium.
