Bloating can be reduced by:
Cutting out inflammatory foods like gluten. Foods like gluten, soy, dairy, and sugar can cause inflammation and in some cases gas. To find out the foods you are intolerant to keep a journal of when you feel bloating after eating and try to look for patterns. It is estimated that 18 million Americans have gluten sensitivity (that is 6 times the amount of Americans who have actually been diagnosed as gluten intolerant celiac disease.) If you experience chronic bloating start out but eliminating gluten and go from there.
Reduce your sodium intake. Even if you do not use table salt you could be consuming salt from prepackaged foods. Try to keep your daily sodium intake around 2000 mg. per day. Our body needs sodium because it keeps our electrolytes balanced so it’s not good to eliminate it completely. Other foods that you may not realize are salty include cheese and some yogurts. Read the nutrition fact sheet and keep track of your daily intake, most people have no idea that they are consuming well over their daily sodium limit. Sodium retains water causing bloating, by reducing sodium content the body will shed unnecessary water weight reducing bloat and overall weight.
