33 Trigger Foods For Bloating: Control Your Tummy Bulge!


Are you having trouble controlling your tummy bulge? You’re definitely not alone. Most of us struggle with bloating on a regular basis. Sure, those extra few pieces of cheese with your glass of wine may seem like a good idea at the time but is it really worth hours of feeling full and tired afterwards? Not really.

The single largest contributing factor when it comes to bloating is your diet. You may not even know it (especially considering so many of the foods listed below are incredibly healthy) but the foods you’re eating are likely causing you to feel full and overinflated. The good news is eliminating these foods from your diet (or at least limiting your intake) will eliminate bloating almost immediately.

Avoid these 33 foods and you’ll be on your way to a flatter tummy in no time:

1. Cheese

If you can’t keep your hands off cheese, there’s actually a plus to this and that embarrassing belly bloat. Cheese contains whey, a type of protein that’s been linked to boosting lean body mass. So watch out 6-pack!

Plus dairy is a satiating food, which means that it fills you up longer than other foods. Snack on a small bowl of cottage cheese, low fat string cheese, or Greek yogurt to prevent binge snacking.
