The food we eat is the main problem, some of the foods rich in fiber and carbohydrates which we consume are the culprits. They are a little hard to digest and can affect different people in different ways.
Food items like beans, peas, whole grains, cabbage, grapes, plums, raisins, corn, onions, soft drinks, red wine, beer and for the milk intolerant people, milk and milk products can cause the gas problem. You also have to remember taking foods containing sorbitol, such as dietetic foods and sugar-free candies and gums can also cause gas trouble.
Note down the things you eat and the amount which causes you the discomfort. Reduce the amounts the next time you eat them and see. Drink lots of water, non aerated drinks, fruit juices and clear soups. These will aid you during the digestion.
Do not gulp and swallow fast while eating. Chew slowly so that you do not swallow lots of air with that.
For all of us Gas will be there in the digestive tract and it is quite normal and not excessive. Only if you have problems like belching, flatulence, bloating, and abdominal pain, you have to take a note and consult.
If you eat moderately and carefully, by trying to understand what your body tells you, you will not get into trouble.
See that your bowel movements are regular, even if it is twice a day. The only thing you can do to to reduce the discomfort of gas are changing your diet, taking digestive enzymes to help digest carbohydrates, and reducing the amount of air swallowed etc.
Always remember that it is not life threatening but only embarassing, when you are with your friends and colleagues.
But always do not avoid taking those foods which create gas for you. They will be the most nutritious food which your body is trying to digest. If you like you can reduce the amount.
