  • Try yoga. Certain poses can help with digestion and improve bloating.
  • Cut back on your alcohol intake and don’t replace your champagne with fizzy water, stick to still water.
  • Switch your fibers. Try rye or spelt bread rather than white bread and avoid gas-producing foods such as beans.

  • Stress less as it can disrupt the muscular contractions that move gas through your stomach.
  • Skip fat and caffeine as they are the two biggest triggers for bloating
  • Go for a walk or a run this can help move the gasses through your system and ease the pain.
  • Limit the sugar in your diet, especially from fruits and fruit juices. They form more gas when they ferment and cause bloating.
