Constipation is a common culprit of bloating. When the waste built up from all your eating cannot be passed outside your body, it will accumulate in the intestines, and gases will concentrate in the stomach. This causes bloating.
There are a number of choices you can try:
- High-fiber fruits and vegetables help constipation.
- Caffeine in chocolate, coffee and cola stimulate bowel movement.
- Because lactose in milk may contribute to constipation and bloating, instead of drinking milk, you may try almond milk as a lactose-free substitute.
- Try taking a walk when you feel bloated. Regular exercise can help relieve constipation and therefore reduce bloating.
