How to stop the bloating

Bloating occurs when your stomach feels inflated after you have eaten. It is frequently brought on by excessive gas production or abnormalities in the movement of the digestive system's muscles.

Bloating can frequently result in pain, discomfort, and the sensation of being "packed." It can also give the appearance of a larger stomach.

Although "bloating" and "water retention" are not synonymous, the two terms are sometimes used interchangeably. Simply put, bloating is the result of an excessive amount of solids, liquids, or gas being retained in your digestive tract.

Bloating, on the other hand, can be caused primarily by a heightened sensitivity in some persons. It just appears as if there is greater pressure in the abdomen, despite the fact that there isn't.

Although bloating can be caused by significant medical disorders, it is most typically caused by a poor diet that contains foods or ingredients that you are intolerant to or intolerant to.

How to stop bloating.

Here are 6 proven ways on how to stop bloating.

1. Avoid consuming an excessive amount of food at one time

Being stuffed can feel like being bloated, but the problem is that you simply ate too much.
If you’re eating big meals and tend to feel uncomfortable afterwards, then try smaller portions. Add another daily meal if necessary.

A subset of people who experience bloating doesn’t really have an enlarged stomach or increased pressure in the abdomen. The issue is mostly sensory.

A person with a tendency to be bloated will experience discomfort from a smaller amount of food than a person who rarely feels bloated.

For this reason, simply eating smaller meals can be incredibly useful. People who experience bloating often have increased sensitivity to food in the stomach. Therefore, eating smaller meals can be very useful.

2. Avoid Swallowing Air and Gases

There are two sources of gas in the digestive system. One is gas produced by the bacteria in the gut. The other is air or gas that is swallowed when you eat or drink. The biggest offender here is carbonated beverages like soda or fizzy drinks.

The swallowed air can contribute to bloating. A major cause is drinking carbonated beverages, which contain gases that are dissolved in the liquid.

Chewing gum, drinking through a straw and eating while talking or while in a hurry can also lead to increased amounts of swallowed air.

3. Don’t Eat Foods That Give You Gas

If certain foods make you feel bloated or give you gas, try cutting back or avoiding them. Eating fatty foods can also slow digestion and may contribute to bloating for some people.

Try eating fewer beans and fatty foods to see if it helps.

4.  Be Careful With Sugar Alcohols

Sugar alcohols can cause digestive issues such as bloating, especially when consumed in large doses. Try avoiding sugar-free chewing gums and other sources of sugar alcohols.

5.  Don’t Be Constipated

Constipation is a very common digestive problem, and can have many different causes.

Constipation can exacerbate bloating symptoms. Increased water intake and physical activity can be effective against constipation.

6. See a Doctor to Rule Out a Chronic and/or Serious Condition

If you have chronic bloating that causes severe problems in your life, or becomes a lot worse all of a sudden, definitely see a doctor.

There is always the possibility of some serious medical condition, and diagnosing digestive problems can be complicated.

However, in many cases, bloating can be reduced — or even eliminated — with simple changes in diet.
