Tricks to Solve Your Tummy Trouble



Food that tastes good isn’t necessarily good for your digestive system. Here’s what to avoid — and what to welcome — to keep your tummy happy.

  • Fried foods. These can cause acid reflux and heartburn.

  • High fat. Foods high in fat can contribute to irritable bowel syndrome.

  • Chili peppers. They can irritate your esophagus and cause heartburn.

  • Dairy. Milk and cheese can cause diarrhea, abdominal cramps, gas, and other ailments if you’re lactose intolerant.

Eat hearty:
  • Yogurt. The bacteria in yogurt with live and active cultures (check the label) aid digestion.

  • Whole grains. Whole-wheat bread, oats, and brown rice contain lots of fiber, contributing to good digestion while lowering cholesterol. Caution — whole grains can cause bloating and gas if you overdo it.

  • Fish and lean meat. Lean cuts of meat and fish break down in your digestive system more easily, and they contain fewer calories.

  • Kimchi. This Korean staple contains cabbage mixed with radishes and sometimes onions. Cabbage, including sauerkraut, can be beneficial to your colon
