Gassy Foods Diet


What is it.? A gassy foods diet means not eating foods that can cause gas, bloating, and discomfort. Some foods cause you gas after you eat them. Each person has their own reaction to single foods. You may not develop gas when eating all of these foods.


Do not eat the gas-causing foods below for a few weeks or until your gas goes away. Try the less gas-causing foods on the second set of lists.
When you are ready to try the gas-causing foods again, add one at a time to see if you get gas. Wait a few days before trying a new food. This will help you find out which foods cause you gas.
Ask caregivers about lactase enzyme pills, like Lactaid? if you have trouble with dairy foods and drinks. These pills help break down the milk sugar (lactose) that may be causing your problem.
Sometimes cooked dried beans cause some people too much gas. Try one of the products made to help digest (break down) beans, like Bean-o?.
There are other things that you can do to keep from getting gas.
Do not use straws or drink from bottles with narrow openings. Drink fewer bubbly liquids, such as soda pop, bubbly water, or beer. Do not eat foods that have a lot of air in them, such as whipped cream or meringue.
Sipping drinks, chewing gum, or sucking hard candy make you swallow often. You may swallow extra air and then have more gas. Eating slowly and not smoking will also lessen gas.
Increase your fiber intake slowly over a period of several months. This will give your body more time to get used to the fiber without causing too much gas.
LESS GAS CAUSING FOODS: The following foods cause less gas.


Lowfat cheese and cottage cheese
Lowfat frozen yogurt
Plain or fruit lowfat yogurt

Smooth peanut butter

Cooked or canned fruits without peels, like applesauce or fruit cocktail
Filtered fruit juices without added fructose (sugar)
Lower fiber fruits, like grapes, kiwi, plums, or nectarines

Farina type cereals, like cream of wheat or rice

THE FOODS BELOW CAN CAUSE GAS: Avoid these foods for a few weeks to see if your problems with gas lessen.

Health Question & Answer

It could be caused by a simple change in diet. Example if you normally eat junk food then all of the sudden eat healthy that could trigger it. Some foods that contain artificial sugar, too much of that food could cause that.

You could try beano, it helps a lot, or a gas pill the green ones with the gel inside works well. Holding it in won't necessarily make you blow up like a balloon, but could cause more pain. There is a way to release that pressure with out the full "blown" release. Let them drift downward in the right direction just not "all the way out" just to the edge hold it there it will "pop" inside with out embarrassing smells and noises. It will take practice. Have fun!Health Question & Answer

Not To Eat/Drink:
Milky + Sugary Foods (more diarrhea than flatulence but still)
Spicy Foods
Thick, Flavoury Foods
Beer (can sometimes cause flatulence)

Should Eat/Drink:
Water (keeps the system clean, so farts smell less)
Lemonade (drinking lemonade often is bad due to the sugar content of most lemonade brands, but once a week/two weeks is very good for the digestive system)
Fruit + Veg (keeps your body healthy, which helps your body digest food properly, and that prevents a number of things including flatulence)
Light yet filling foods (won't 'weigh you down' or make you feel heavy and bloated which helps prevent flatulence and a number of other things)Health Question & Answer

vegetables - brocolli, cauliflower, cabbage
