Why am I so bloated?

Bloating, abdominal discomfort and gassiness are some of the most uncomfortable and prolonged symptoms in the GI tract. It sometimes feels like your midsection has been flooded with fluid or like a ball is sitting in your stomach. In some cases, bloating can even cause distention or swelling of the abdomen. Although bloating goes away and is rarely an indication for something serious—it may make you feel lethargic, clumsy, and large.

To combat bloating—we must classify its causes and treatments. Bloating and gas are usually entwined to what and how you eat, so a few simple changes may help. Below are the 3 most common causes and cures for bloating:

Causes and Cures

  • 1. Overeating is probably the most common cause of bloating. Smaller portions should alleviate the pain.
  • 2.Eating rich and fatty food can make you feel unpleasantly stuffed. Fat takes longer to digest than protein or carbohydrates, so it keeps the stomach full longer. Avoid bloating by limiting fats in your everyday diet.
  • 3.Eating too fast adds to the risk of bloating after a meal. The remedy is simple – eat more slowly.
