Watch What You Eat

Having a sensitive stomach simply means we need to be considerate of our stomachs ability and work with it.  The friendly bacteria in our guts help to digest foods that our bodies have trouble breaking down.  These friendly bacteria also produce gas.  This is usually as they digest food in the large intestines.  Sometimes this leads to an upset stomach or pain after a meal.

Listed here are some foods likely to cause this problem:

•Asparagus, broccoli, brussels sprouts, cabbage, and other vegetables
•Beans and lentils
•Lactose, the natural sugar found in milk
•Corn, pasta, potatoes, and other foods rich in starch
•Fruits, oat bran, peas, and other foods high in soluble fiber, which gets digested in your large intestine
•Whole grains, such as brown rice, oatmeal, and whole wheat
•Fructose, a natural sugar found in artichokes, onions, pears, wheat, and some soft drinks
•Sorbitol, the artificial sweetener

Yes, these are all healthy foods, but don’t let that confuse you.  Just choose what works for you.  Most likely you don’t have to severely restrict your diet.  It may be that only a few of these cause you problems.  And remember that some people have problems digesting milk or milk products.   But others do not.   Also keep in mind that food sensitivities may also change over time.

    No wonder I oftentimes have a stomach upset or bloated stomach even I eat vegetables and fruits.
