Sudden bouts of bloat, feeling bloated

21.  Sudden bouts of bloat 


Bloating makes ones abdomen feel tight and full, oftentimes causing pain. The causes of bloating vary - from poor nutrition to anxiety or stress. Like weight gain and fluid retention, bloating can also be a common side effect of hormone therapy. 

Here are some tips to help reduce uncomfortable bloating: 

Chew your food slowly. Digestion starts in your mouth. If your teeth dont chew your food completely, your stomach will need to do extra work afterwards. 

Avoid eating too many gassy foods at one meal. Foods like cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, onions, beans, brussel spouts, corn, oats, potatoes, apples, pears, peaches, milk, soft cheese and fluffy wheat are difficult to digest.
