Health Tip: Help Prevent Bloating

When your belly feels tight and full

(HealthDay News) -- When your belly feels stretched and uncomfortably full, you've probably got a case of bloating.

The U.S. National Library of Medicine suggests how to prevent bloating:

  • Don't chew gum or drink carbonated beverages, particularly if they contain a lot of sorbitol or fructose.
  • Avoid gas-causing foods such as turnips, cabbage, beans, Brussels sprouts and lentils.
  • Eat your food slowly.
  • Don't smoke.
  • Treat constipation, but be careful with fiber supplements, which may worsen symptoms.
