Yes, this is an unpleasant part of Gastric Bypass surgery: the gas. You can’t blame that silent and deadly fart on the dog that you don’t have. It doesn’t work. I may have tried it… but you can do a few things to help eliminate the problem! Here are our Top 10 Movements & Foods to Reduce Gas & Bloating.
Top 10 Movements & Foods to Reduce Gas & Bloating
Whether you’re looking to get those Instagram-worthy flat abs, or just feel better about yourself, bloating is exactly what you’d want to tackle, and there’s no better (and healthy) way to do it than trying these movements or including these foods in your diet.
Ginger is one of the best natural medicines when it comes to anything revolving around the digestive system. Sip on some ginger tea or add it to your meals to de-bloat yourself naturally and give your body a good dose of a powerful anti-inflammatory and antibacterial agent.
Yogurt is packed with probiotic bacteria which help maintain digestive health. Including more of it in your meals can help reduce gas, bloating and tackle irritable bowel syndrome, constipation and almost all other digestive issues.
Spicing up your dinner with some cayenne pepper can increase the flow of digestive enzymes through your intestines, and help you tackle bloating and gas single handedly.
Garlic, when consumed on its own, can help relieve gas and bloating super effectively. Chewing on a raw garlic clove can help, but if you’re not so keen on doing that, you can add it to your soups and other dishes.
Lemon is another powerful natural de-bloating agent that can also relieve other symptoms of indigestion and improve overall digestive health. Start your day with a glass of warm water and lemon juice, or squeeze a few drops into your morning tea.
Fennel seeds, just like ginger, are extremely powerful when it comes to reducing gas and bloating. Chewing on some seeds can freshen your breath and help reduce intestinal gas.
Bananas are excellent for giving you energy all day long, and that’s not it. They are also rich in potassium, which can help give you that flat belly you’ve been wanting by tackling water retention and bloating.
One of the best ways to feel de-bloated and expel out the gas without actually eating anything is to go for a walk. Taking a short walk after your meal can work wonders and also improve digestive health.
Squatting is also a very good way to expel out the gas from your system, and feel de-bloated in no time. It is a good idea to keep squatting until you feel the gas move, and it has been found that this position can actually also help stimulate bowel movement. When done regularly, squats are also an excellent form of exercise.
The child’s pose is a yoga asana that is super effective for gas. It exerts pressure on the belly which can help you pass gas easily and can also leave you feeling de-bloated.
