Before we get into the ins and outs of what foods to eat and which to avoid, it is worth spending a moment talking about what you can do to aid digestion. Your digestion is something that can be very tentative, and if you feel that you are often in pain or that there feels to be something wrong when you are digesting, then you might want to look into what you can do to make that a little better. If nothing else, this will mean that you are going to have a much better chance of feeling well, which is certainly important to most people. One of the best ways to aid your digestion and make the process more comfortable is to look into taking probiotics, in whatever form you can find them. These can improve digestive comfort to no end, and that is absolutely something that you will be glad for once you have it sorted.
Of course, mostly this is all about what you are eating, and you will need to make sure that you are focused on eating the right kinds of food if you hope to keep your stomach in the best possible state. There are a number of foods in particular which you should focus on eating, and a number which you should avoid at all costs, or at least have as rarely as possible. Some of the things you should eat most of are obvious, such as having plenty of a variety of fruit and veg and grains, but there are certain specific foods that require and deserve special mentions too. Let’s take a look at a few, to give you some idea of the kinds of foods that you might want to make a big part of your daily diet.
Apples are always a good idea, because they contain high levels of insoluble fiber. They are also rich in pectin, which helps to avoid stomach irritations. The old saying about an apple a day keeping the doctor away might really have a lot of truth to it, so make sure that you are finding some way to introduce it to your daily diet. You can cut it up and put it on your cereal, or you could just make sure that you eat one with lunch. Either way, make sure that you do have at least one apple every day.
Another thing you should eat daily is avocado, which for many of you probably doesn’t sound like a chore at all. They are delicious, after all – and the good news is that the fat they provide is the good kind, so you won’t have to worry about putting weight on. Beyond that, avocados also have plenty of potassium and fiber, making them perfect allies in the fight against stomach problems. You should absolutely make a point of eating them regularly.
If you don’t currently eat much fennel, you are not alone. This is not something many people think of, however it is good for you and something which is very easy to get into your daily diet, especially in the form of crushed seeds which can act as a seasoning. Fennel acts as a great natural antiflatulent, which is great news for many people, and you might find that it helps to keep plenty of your gas at bay.
As you can see, there is a lot you can do to start with to ensure that your belly is going to be looked after – so make sure that you do so.
