Preventing Bloating Tidbits


PREVENTING BLOATING TIDBITS

SLIM YOUR VEGGIES

Instead of noshing on raw vegetables, opt for steamed ones instead. A half-cup serving of cooked carrots delivers the same nutrition as one cup raw.

SPIT OUT THE GUM

When you chew gum, you swallow air. All that air gets trapped in your gut and causes pressure, bloating, and belly expansion.

DON’T EAT TOO FAST

Eating quickly and not chewing your food well can cause air swallowing that leads to bloating.

AVOID ACIDIC SIPS

Coffee, tea, juice, and alcohol are all high-acid beverages that can irritate your GI tract, causing swelling.
