B L O A T I N G : Best tips for de-bloating

This has been a popular topic with my friends recently. So many women get bloated and just self-diagnose with IBS or stress or just lack of fibre.
 Feeling bloated is usually poor digestion, so you naturally think ‘I’ll eat more fibre’ but
then you get even more bloated and more in pain and probably an upset tummy! 
Fibre is of course a major player in making sure your digestive system is in tact and working well, but did you know fibre can’t do its job properly without the good bacteria in your gut? Probiotics are the bacteria your gut needs to stay happy. They breakdown food to allow fibre to move it along your intestine. 
Now this is where it gets a bit more complex... pre biotics and pro biotics are different and you need both to have a super healthy digestive system. Prebiotics are basically food to fuel the probiotics. With both of these and fibre, hopefully you’ll have a happy tummy, and if not maybe go see your Doctor 👨‍⚕️ 

Prebiotic food; 
Broccoli 
Asparagus 
Bananas 
Oats
Apples 

Probiotic food; 
Bio live yoghurt 
Kefir 
Kimchi
Butter milk
Some cheeses (check the labels for live cultures, usually blue cheeses) 

Fibre food; 
Whole grain bread & Pasta 
Vegetables, broccoli, peas, sweet corn 
Fruit, with skin on. 
Nuts & seeds 

Leave a comment to let me know how you get on! Remember if you eat gluten free like me you can get lots of fibre from fruit and vegetables!
