      Bloated stomach? Meet the culprits

      Bloating of the stomach is not just caused by a heavy meal, there could be other issues too. Bloating is basically having your stomach filled with fluids or gases. Though this can be caused by overeating or eating too quickly, sometimes it’s foods and beverages that can be the big culprits.


      This tasty cruciferous vegetable is rich in vitamins, minerals and fiber. While this fiber can help some people feel fuller quickly, for some whose diet is rich in fiber, it can cause flatulence.

      Chewing gum and candy

      Who would ever think that these sweet treats could cause havoc? When you chew gum, you tend to inhale air into your digestive tract. This air gets trapped into your stomach causing flatulence. Artificial sweeteners and chemicals add to bloating too. If you think that you could cut down on the gum chewing by replacing it with lollipops or mints, think again. These lead to bloating too. Besides this, these contain sorbitol, a drug that is prescribed to promote constipation. Side effects may include excess bloating, vomiting and diarrhea.


      Many people suffer from bloating post consuming large quantities of milk or milk-based products. Many may not even realize that they are intolerant to lactose and when the body finds it difficult to digest it, it produces gas.

      Corn and chips

      Corn has cellulose which the body finds very tough to digest and when it’s unable to break it down, the result is gas and cramps. Packaged potato chips contain huge quantities of sodium that retain water in the cells of your body making them swell.

      Coffee and sodas

      Ever wondered why your stomach felt uneasy after having a large cup of coffee? The reason is that coffee is a diuretic that dehydrates your organs. In response to this, your body infuses water to your cells to prevent dehydration and this causes bloating. Huge quantities of carbonated sodas and beer will end up with gas being stored in your stomach making it bloat.
