- Calciferous vegetables like broccoli, cabbage and kale are best to avoid as they contain raffinose - which is a sugar that remains undigested in your gut until bacteria comes along to ferment it. This produces gasses in your stomach, which ends in bloating. However, do not think about giving up these healthy, nutrient rich vegetables, just keep your portions in check.
- Salty foods tend to have a high sodium content which can trigger water retention. Salt sneaks its way into foods such as processed and packaged foods including soups and breads, so although these can be difficult to avoid, check your ingredients before tucking in.
