Bloating is Normal. You Don’t Have to Start an Elimination Diet.

bloating is normal you dont have to start an elimination diet

Friendly reminder that bloating is normal! We all get it and it doesn’t mean you have to start eliminating foods from the diet.
Some tips for reducing bloating:
– avoid gassy foods
– avoid sucking through straws
– avoid carbonated beverages
– avoid chewing gum and sucking candies
– avoid eating too fast
– avoid sugar alcohols
Of course, if it’s worse than usual or very painful, see a doctor. But don’t jump to eliminating foods because for most people that’s not necessary and anxiety about eating is going to cause more digestive woes.
