EAT A REGULAR AND BALANCED DIET
Similarly to drinking less fizzy drinks, eating a more balanced diet, at routine times, can also help to reduce the uncomfortable bloating that you may be experiencing. Large fatty meals are an obvious culprit when it comes to bloating, as they are harder to digest than smaller, more regular portions containing the correct amount of vegetables and fibre that your body needs.
Thoroughly chewing food and avoiding talking while eating can also help you to deal with the effects of bloating. If you chew properly and keep your mouth closed, then you are less likely to take in any excess air. This air can quickly become trapped in the stomach and easily lead to an unpleasant bloating sensation.
TRY TO AVOID CHEWING GUM
If you find that you’re dealing with bloating more often than you’d like, and you also happen to chew gum a lot of the time, those two things may actually be connected. In fact, the NHS specifically recommends that if you’re experiencing bloat then it may be time to stop chewing gum.
Not only can the constant chewing lead to you swallowing too much air, but when this air mixes with your digestive gases, then this trapped air can quickly increase the pressure in your stomach and give you that unpleasant bloated feeling. If you feel that you can go without chewing gum for a while, give it a try and see if it helps.
