Minimise drinking water with a meal
Drink 2 litres of water during the day. However, try to minimise drinking water with a meal. This may upset your digestive system and cause bloating right after a meal.
Avoid foods that are high in salt, sugar, and fat
Avoid foods that are high in salt, sugar, and fat. These can all contribute to bloating and digestive issues.

Eating fruits after a meal can intensify bloating. When you eat fruits after a meal, the fruit ferments on tip of the main meal you ate. To prevent this, it’s best to eat fruits on its own or at least 30 minutes before a meal. It’s best to eat a healthy dessert instead if fruits.
