stomach-bloatIf you have to unbutton your skirt or trousers after a meal, you may be suffering from intestinal bloating.

Here are some tips:

  • You may have a sensitivity to wheat or dairy products. Try eliminating one, and then both, from your diet for a week and see if you can spot the culprit
  • Refined sugars found in cakes, biscuits and processed foods ferment in the gut, causing gas and bloating as healthy bacteria are destroyed, so cut them out of your diet completely
  • Avoid low-fibre foods including all white flour products and refined breakfast cereals
  • Try eating more wholefoods, including brown rice and legumes
  • Drink at least 6 glasses of water daily
