3. Carbonated Drinks

Carbonated drinks are high in carbon dioxide, a gas. Drinking sodas mean swallowing large amounts of carbon dioxide. This gas gets trapped in the digestive system. Consequently, this can cause bloating and cramping.

Drink plain water instead of sodas.

4. Wheat

Wheat is widely consumed. It is an ingredient in most breads, pastas, tortillas, and pizzas, as well as baked goods like cakes, biscuits, pancakes, and waffles.
However, for people with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity, wheat causes major digestive problems like bloating, gas, diarrhea, and stomach pain. Wheat is also a major source of FODMAPs, which we know is a cause of bloating.

There are many gluten-free alternatives to wheat, though, such as pure oats, quinoa, buckwheat, almond flour and coconut flour.
