Evening all. I need some help. I'm feeling constantly bloated after a meal and it's really bothering me! I've been to the docs and they can see no reason for it. I've cut out foods I thought it was but still the same. How can I debloat?? Xx

If you don't Find the yogurt filling at breakfast it does work well mixed into Your porridge to cool it and doesn't effect the cultures or in a Bircher or Swiss style overnight oats. Enjoy x

Hmm I'll try and find ways to incorporate it daily then. I tried for breakfast but found it never kept me full so could work as an evening or afternoon snack. I normally pick at nuts in the afternoon so maybe a could swap that for a yoghurt X

You can heat the berries to make a warm compote to put on top, it also makes nice healthy coleslaw

Hi Jenny. Ya I often try to incorporate it into day as snack or breakfast or evening snack. I often have about 100 or 150g Topped with nuts and seeds, but it's great on its own or with some Manuka on top or frozen berries

Hi Sinead. Do you have yoghurt as a snack during the day? I could try and incorporate that too maybe as an afternoon or evening snack? Unless there's a best time to have it? X

Oh really? I always drink water with breakfast and lunch so maybe I'll cut that out. I am assuming that means no driving just before a meal? X

Do you drink water with your meals? Apparently it can dilute your digestive bacteria. I used to drink loads of water with my meals and would get really bloated but since I've stopped it's helped so much X

I had a short period of feeling similar, the bloating was terribly painful too, it turned out it was all nerves! Maybe try to focus on relaxing techniques, meditation, yoga, relaxing walks in the sun, I even downloaded relaxation music to listen to on my train. I drink peppermint tea too and calming herbal teas. Hope you get better soon! Xx

Thank you for all your wonderful advice. Just done some yoga now going to shower and then have some cider vinegar and water xx

You could try apple cider vinegar diluted in water before meals X

Personally I choose coconut oil for its general health properties and it doesn't really effect the taste if you get a good brand like Lucy bee, I've even added it to smoothies and hot cocoa and it's amazing. But that's my personal choice as well as the fact that I hate olive oil it makes me sick

If you don't want to take a probiotic I suggest you get a huge tub of full fat or 2% fage which has good live cultures, use it to make dressings or smoothies and it could help. I love having fage or Skyr as my snack and as it's easily broken down it helps. Few other things I've tried are Manuka honey and peppermint tea after my meal

Any oil in particular? Xx

I think it could be stress as I'm taking a lot on at the moment :( i always chew my food until it's virtually just mulch. I may try a probiotic and see but I find them quite expensive xx

Also what can help is to use slightly more oil when you cook your food it is very good for aiding digestion

Have you tried some probiotics? Could it be stress? I know I get flares depending on Wat I eat and if I am stressed. I find lemon and ginger tea really good and that chewing my food carefully is essential to breakdown all the veg and fibre that can't be digested.
