Have you ever wondered why you feel more bloated in the evening than in the morning?


Here are some recommendations:


  1. Know the most common bloating foods – apples, beans, onions, dairy products, and cruciferous vegetables, try to eat them not too close to bedtime.

  2. Watch how much grains you eat close to your bedtime – while they are rich in fiber and healthy, they can promote bloating, instead try to eat them earlier in the day.

  3. Limit your salt intake – extra salty meals may lead to water retention, which causes bloating amongst other long-term health issues like high blood pressure.

  4. Avoid fatty foods – they take longer for your body to digest. The fat moves slowly through the digestive tract, and this may cause bloating, especially saturated and trans fats, i.e., fried and packaged foods.

  5. Limit carbonated drinks – they are the leading cause for bloating. Try to drink plain water, put a slice of lemon or lime in it for some extra vitamins and fresh taste.

  6. Eat slowly – you can swallow air when you wolf your meal down in a minute or two and this can lead to gas retention.
