There is nothing worse than enjoying a delicious meal only to suffer from bloating after it. Not good, especially on a first date!

Here are 4 ways to beat it, without sacrificing the good stuff:

Chew your food
The best and easiest way to avoid bloating is to spend time chewing your food. Avoid eating on the go – sit down and relax with your lunch.

Avoid drinking with meals
Your stomach’s acid breaks down your food so that it can be digested. However, fluids can actually dilute it meaning it can’t do its job properly.

Avoid a large meal
Stick with small and often meals. Obviously the more food you have in your stomach, the bigger your stomach will be!

Eat plenty of fibre
Fibre is important for aiding digestion, it also prevents constipation which can lead to a bloated stomach.
