While it might seem that feeling bloated happens at random times, it’s important to try and look for patterns. Often difficulty digesting certain food types can contribute to a feeling of being bloated by increasing gas production in the intestines. Dairy is the classic example. While you might not be outright lactose intolerant, you may have a mild intolerance that leads to bloating. Take notice and reduce or cut out the foods you find.
When fat hits your stomach and intestines, it slows down the movement of food. That means that if you have a big meal with a lot of fat in it, your body will take more time than usual to move that food through. This causes you to feel full for longer and can contribute both to the feeling and appearance of being bloated.
We all swallow a little air when we eat, but eating too fast can dramatically increase the air you swallow. While some of that air might be burped up, most of it moves into the intestine and can lead to bloating and increased gassiness. If you slow down your eating, you’ll swallow less air and decrease your bloat.
