We all know that milk in excessive amounts is not healthy for your health. But if it causes problems with constipation and bloating maybe the problem is that your body does not tolerate lactose.
If the products that are rich in starch cause you bloated stomach you do not have to dispose them of your diet but to select those who do not. Wheat, barley and rye contain large amounts of fructan, a polymer of fructose, which causes bloating. It is better to put potatoes, rice, corn and oats on your plate, which contain much less fructan.
Apple and pear can cause bloating. Although the fruit is packed with healthy ingredients like vitamins and minerals and it can be a cause of bloating.
