Flatulence

People don’t only want to look good and feel good, but also smell good as well. That is why tonights blog I choose to discuss flatulence. We all have it, we all do it, no matter how loud or silent we are…it’s a natural way of life. A way to express oneself to put it mildly.


What makes flatulence? Well, it is what we eat for one thing and I am here to help you recognize those foods that are healthy for you, but might make you excuse yourself from the table for a second or “toot”. Apricots, carrots, lemons, bananas, oranges and lets not forget prunes to name a few fruits to be aware of. They have an excellent amount of fiber in them, some more than others, but be aware.


Some healthy carbohydrates that influence flatulence are: beans, peas, soy, sprouts (Brussels), celery, cucumbers, cabbage and cauliflower. (One reason why my momma told me to eat my vegetable and I chose not to.) If you chose to eat pan fried or deep fried foods, your result will be the same as eating any of the healthy items mentioned above, but stick with the healthy and go for tuna instead. Yes, tuna is also a contributing factor to flatulence.


Fruits and vegetables are good for you in more ways than one, but eating smaller amounts should result in less bloating and discomfort. Which brings me to ways to protect yourself from getting bloated. Eat the healthy stuff in moderation, especially if you are starting a “I am gonna get myself into healthy eating diet.” Your body needs to adjust to this sudden change in processing food so shoving in the healthy stuff will not allow your intestines to work properly at breaking down the food. Slow down.


I hope this helped a bit. Stay away from carbonated drinks as well to help prevent this. Drink plenty of water because it is the most healthy and natural resource we have at our disposal.
