The feeling of being bloated isn’t new to anyone, especially after the Christmas meal! There is pressure in the gut, and it can be anywhere from under ribs down to your pelvis. Let’s take a look at the leading causes of bloating:

are you bloating after eating?
  • An imbalance of bacteria in the digestive tract can cause unusual amounts of bloating. When we eat lots of fibre or carbs, this can cause excess gas due to the bacteria fermenting these foods.
  • Suffering from IBS can increase your propensity to bloating. Alongside this, some people just have a more highly sensitive digestive tract, and they tend to experience more bloating because of it.
  • The natural production of gas produced by your gut can cause bloating if it isn’t absorbed properly. When it gets trapped, it comes along with wind pains, not fun!
  • If you suffer from either constipation or diarrhoea, this can also cause excess bloating.
  • Food intolerances are also a major cause of bloating. If you are regularly bloated but don’t fit into any of the above categories, then it’s worth looking into any possible food intolerances.

Food intolerances and bloating after eating:

Some food intolerances have a higher amount of bloating associated with them, such as lactose intolerance.

The lactose component of milk is a naturally occurring sugar, and it requires the lactase enzyme to be broken down efficiently. However, the vast majority of adult human’s don’t make the necessary lactase enzyme, which means that when milk or dairy is consumed, a large amount of bloating follows suit. The bacteria have an absolute field day on the milk sugar, causing all of the digestive discomfort associated with lactose intolerance.

Food intolerances don’t have a cure as such, but they can be remedied by avoiding the problem food. In this case, it’s dairy.

Tips to reduce your bloating!

  • One of the best things you can do to avoid bloating after eating, is to be mindful of how much food is on your plate. Overloading yourself with an abundance of food is going to cause bloating no matter what.
  • Second to portion control, being mindful of chewing your food very well can go a long way to reducing bloating too. If we have large pieces of food that haven’t been chewed properly swimming around in our stomach, it can cause digestive distress and bloating. Chewing our food until its liquified can really help ease bloating and discomfort.
  • Herbal teas can be very beneficial in reducing gas and bloating. Peppermint and chamomile are perfect after-dinner drinks and will help to relieve any gas that’s built up.
  • Using heat can also help. Applying a warm pack to your abdomen can really help to relax the muscles, and walking afterwards will help you relieve any stuck gas and bloating.
  • Avoid wearing tight pants, as they can be the cause of night time bloating.
  • Practice deep belly breathing. This relaxes your digestive and nervous systems, and when they are uptight, this can be the cause of your bloating.
