Changing Diet

First, it’s important to remember that the amount of gas caused by certain foods affects everyone differently. So trial and error will often be the best approach in deciding which foods you can handle best, and how much.It’s also important to make sure that if you’re trying to avoid foods that cause gas, don’t eliminate healthy foods such as fruits and vegetables or whole grains. An easier way to start might be by limiting high-fat foods. This helps the stomach empty faster, allowing gas to move into the small intestine.Also, avoid consumption of alcohol and carbonated beverages when trying to reduce gas.
