No matter how you say it Farts, Flutes, and Toots can be a problem! Eating a high fiber diet full of whole grains offer so many wonderful health benefits but can leave you with one uncomfortable and embarrassing side effect. Here are a few simple suggestions to help alleviate this problem. Start slowly. If your system is not used to consuming a whole bunch of whole grains it could be a dramatic change for your intestines. Start off slowly by introducing one or two throughout the day. This will give your body a chance to adjust without the side effects. There are a few other culprits that can cause gas and bloating such as high fat foods, dairy and carbonated drinks. Eliminating these from your diet can reduce bloating and gas. Drinking adequate water throughout the day will ensure healthy digestion. And lastly, over eating and scarfing down your meals to fast can cause bloating. Be mindful as your eat, slow down and enjoy each bite.
