Gas and bloating are more than just annoying and uncomfortable. They can cause you to lose sleep, be less confident in social situations, and force you to avoid your favorite foods. There is no one magic diet that will eliminate gas and bloating for everyone. Each person is different, and what causes gas in one person may not affect another. However, there are plenty of delicious foods you can add to your diet that should minimize gas and bloat.


1. Leafy Greens

Low-carbohydrate vegetables, including leafy greens such as kale, endive, romaine, beet greens, chard, mustard greens and spinach, are much less likely to cause gas and bloating than their higher-carbohydrate cousins, cucumber, broccoli, and cauliflower. Eating greens is also a good way to get your daily iron, magnesium, and fiber.
