Let’s face it, most of us deal with bloating, stomach pain and gas throughout our lives, but for some people it becomes “normal.” While it’s normal to experience every once in a while, it’s not something you have to live with on a daily basis. Whether you’re experiencing these symptoms regularly or just want to be sure to avoid them for a specific time in your life, here are some great tips to help you limit these digestive issues.

However, it’s important to remember that every person’s body is individual and has individual needs and reactions. These tips are generalizations, but if you know what works well for you, stick to those choices!

  1. Get moving! While you might feel tired after a big meal or uncomfortable if you’re bloated, moving is the best thing you can do. Going for a walk will help your body digest food better while also getting your blood flowing.
  2. Eat a high fiber diet. Before you say high fiber foods make gas and bloating worse, know that your body has to get used to digesting them, so slowly add them into your diet. High fiber foods sweep your intestinal tract of toxins and regulate your bowel movements.
  3. Avoid saturated fats. Some fats are really great for your body like avocado, coconut oil, nut butters, and olive oil. However, saturated fats, like those from fast food, will make you feel bloated and sluggish.
  4. Eat frequent, small meals. Eating a couple big meals a day can be really hard on your digestive system. While you have to work with your lifestyle, try eating smaller meals and including an extra snack or two.
  5. Stay hydrated. Water is essential to a well-functioning digestive system and is often the cure for constipation. Keep a large water bottle with you at all times.
  6. Manage your stress. Many people don’t know this, but the mind and gut are strongly linked. If you’re feeling stressed, whether due to a big life issue or you are simply running late, these thoughts can seriously affect your digestion.
  7. Cut out artificial sweeteners. Many people, especially those who frequently eat artificial sweeteners, become intolerant to them. These include aspartame and sucralose, among others, and can cause stomach pain and bloating. Try cutting them out and see how you feel after a couple of weeks.
  8. Avoid individual irritants. Along the same line as artificial sweeteners, certain foods irritate people’s bodies differently. If you’ve done all the above and are still struggling with pain, bloating and gas, try cutting out other types of foods or drinks like coffee, alcohol, or dairy. Be sure to see your doctor or a dietician as well!
