Bloated belly

There are a lot of possible causes, and it’s important to know what yours is because the solution depends on it:

  • Eating too much
  • Food intolerance
  • Drinking too much liquid during a meal
  • Mixing a lot of different kinds of foods
  • Too much fiber
  • Fluid retention
  • Not chewing your food well, swallowing air, etc.
  • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)

However, besides digestion-related issues, women may get bloated from hormonal issues as well. For example, ovarian cysts, uterine fibroids, or premenstrual syndrome (PMS). Other times, it has to do with pregnancy or menstruation.

Anti-bloating foods

Take it during several days and you’ll see remarkable results. Of course, you’ll also have to eat well and manage your emotions and anxiety better, since those elements affect your body as well.


Papaya is one of the best fruits when it comes to fixing digestion difficulties. Due to the enzymes in it — papain being the most important — this tropical fruit helps your body digest proteins better and thus reduce inflammation and bloating.

Papaya also contains a good amount of fiber, which prevents constipation and lowers blood sugar levels. Not to mention, issues with your blood sugar can cause fat to build up in your abdominal area.
