6 Foods that Can Cause Bloating

Bloating is so annoying, and if you are like me, you get really frustrated trying to figure out what is causing it.

With so many contradictory claims when it comes to eating healthy, it can be hard to know what to eat and what to avoid.  This confusion leads so many to throw their hands up altogether and feel those feelings of "why even try?!" 

Even foods that are said to be healthy can still cause you discomfort, which is partly why it can be so frustrating.  Bloating is our bodies attempt to let us know it disagrees with something we gave it and can be a big clue to the types of foods you should cut down on or avoid. 

I have compiled a list for you of some foods to be aware of, but make sure to read to the end as I have a gift that my clients use to pin point what exactly is going on and causing their bloating.

Pros and Cons of Elimination Diets

Our digestive system is a huge portal into our bodies. Lots of things can get in there that aren't always good for us. And because the system is so complex (knowing which tiny molecules to absorb, and which keep out), lots can go wrong. And that's one reason why 70% of our immune system lives in and around our digestive system.

This makes food allergies, sensitivities, and intolerances a huge contribution to an array of symptoms all over our bodies. Things like autoimmune issues, inflammation, and even our moods can be affected by what we eat. If you have digestive issues or any other unexplained symptoms, you may consider trying an elimination diet.

An elimination diet is one where you strategically eliminate certain foods to see if you react to them. It can help immensely when trying to figure out if a particular food is causing symptoms because you’re sensitive to it.

You generally start out by eliminating the most common food allergens for a few weeks. Then you slowly add them back one at a time and note any symptoms (better or worse).

Let’s go over the pros and cons of this diet.

Do you ever feel a bit “overextended” in the belly after a meal? Perhaps “gassy?” Have you ever carried a “food baby?”

If you are nodding your head, then I know exactly how you feel. I have had tummy troubles most of my adult life, and I have spent so much time in the bathroom, that I know how you feel. 

Well, bloating is common. Up to 25-30% of people experience it regularly. It happens when you have trouble digesting. The symptoms come from excess gas, reactions to foods, or food not moving through you as well as it could.

There are many reasons you might experience these symptoms. Maybe because of a serious condition (disease), or a food allergy or intolerance (what you eat). It can also result from how you eat.
