What Causes a Bloated Stomach and How to Get Rid of One and Keep it From Coming Back!

Having a bloated stomach not only feels uncomfortable, but it looks terrible too. In this article I will be talking about what a bloated stomach is, what causes it, and most importantly, how to get rid of it and keep it that way.
What Is A Bloated Stomach
A bloated stomach is a stomach that is swollen or puffed up due to excessive gases. It is not the same as having a fat stomach although the two may go together. In the bloated stomach, gas from food or other underling causes stretches the stomach many times its normal size. Extreme cases can cause a lot of pain.
Causes Of A Bloated Stomach
There can be many causes of a bloated stomach and they can be different for everyone. So I will give you the most common causes:
Certain foods such as cauliflower, cabbage, broccoli, sprouts, onions, and garlic can cause your stomach to bloat.
Dairy products.
Wheat products.
Too much fiber, especially when your stomach is not used to it.
Sugar free foods that contain artificial sweeteners.
Bubbly drinks (they are filled with air bubbles).
Eating too much, too fast.
Irritable bowel syndrome (which can be controlled). How You Can Reduce Stomach Bloating!
Okay, now comes the really important part...how to get rid of that bloated stomach.
Cut down on salt. It helps you retain water, which will make you look even more bloated.
Take a good pro-biotic bacteria, such as acidophilus, to destroy gas producing bacteria.
Drink plenty of water so that your body will not hold on to water.
Eat slowly and chew your food well. Your mouth is the beginning of the digestive process.
Stay away from sugar. It feeds the unfriendly bacteria that causes gas.
Avoid stress. This may sound like a strange suggestion, but stress negatively affects every part of your body.
Avoid hard-to-digest fatty foods.
Include soluble fiber in your diet. This is also good for curbing cholesterol.
Avoid slurping and gulping.
Avoid carbonated drinks.
Avoid beans (the "musical fruit").
Try avoiding milk products. Many people are lactose intolerant and the lactose in the milk can cause gas. Okay, that's quite a list and should get you going in the right direction. However, it is important to see that your bloating may be caused by other digestive problems that may need to be corrected.
