No more bloating.
When we eat there is no thought about why after a full plate of pasta and cheese the stomach is bubbling. Some of us are lactose intolerant and do not know it. As the body gets older it makes less of the lactase enzyme, so it takes longer to digest the dairy products. Some may have a similar problem with fructose. Those people who cannot digest milk sugars normally will finish the process in their colon (Dartmouth Univ. School of Medicine). Some fruits, sugars, sweeteners, and vegetables can be effective at causing gas and bloating. Test the theory by eliminating one at a time to get less bloat. For example, try eliminating a fruit at a time. I recently eliminated the banana which I ate for many years to try this. I tried it for one week. I have no gas and some shirts fit better. I replaced it with a berry fruit instead.
Salts collect moisture. When you think about it when it is humid outside your salt shaker gets clumpy. So think about the body when there is salt it absorbs the moisture in your bloodstream. So your body holds on to water. Your legs may swell or hands. The maximum requirement of sodium should be 2300 milligrams daily. Avoid salt by eating fresh foods instead of processed and can foods. They are high in sodium. Watch labels and drink water to keep sodium in check.
Eliminate bloat with these foods:
Watermelon, cranberries, blueberries, and cherries are natural diuretics. Watch the portions because too much sugar can cause bloating. Not more than two servings per day. Avocado reduces puffy feelings and is high in potassium. Celery is also high in potassium.
