A healthy diet majorly comprises of fruits and vegetables which is ideal. But, many dieters complain of gastric bloating on initiating a healthy diet. There is nothing to panic, this is normal and let us give you more insight into why this happens and what needs to be done:
Fruits contain high fructose contain. This causes excessive gas in many individuals. Apples, pears, peaches, guava have more pectin content which again is responsible for bloating.
Vegetables contain high fibre content. When you eat raw salads, it is likely that you feel bloated as fibre takes time to break down and digest. Cauliflower, broccoli and cabbage are responsible for excessive belching and gas. This is primarily because gut friendly bacteria breakdown the fibre in these vegetables and cause fermentations, thus causing inconvenient embarrassments.
Whole grain carbohydrates like oats, brown rice and broken wheat are slow to digest and thus fermentations cause bloating in many.
