One of the serious side effects of eating the wrong foods is an upset stomach that will result in bloating and abdominal pains. There are many foods that you should be avoiding each day that contribute to your digestive issues. The troubling issue is that 15-30% of people experience this abdominal pain on a consistent basis. The bloating and pain can almost surely be traced back to something in that diet, and identifying specific food that terribly upset your stomach can go a long way improving your overall health. These seven foods should be avoided to allow the stomach to function properly and improve your well-being.

1. Beans

Beans can be a great source of minerals and vitamins, but not all beans offer the body the nutrients it needs to thrive. Several beans contain sugars called alpha-galactosides, and can cause an increase in the gas produced by the stomach. That increased gas will result in stomach pain and can cause irritable bowel syndrome. The result is cramping, diarrhea, bloating, and flatulence. If you must consume beans, look for the ones that provide higher amounts of healthy carbs and proteins. One of the ways to improve the quality of the beans is to sprout or soak them before consuming. If the beans are causing you stomach discomfort, make the switch to healthy grains instead.

2. Soda

One of the foods that you should seriously consider eliminating from you diet is carbonated soda. These drinks contain high levels of carbonated gas, adding to the bloating in your stomach and increase of abdominal pains. Each time that you swallow a mouthful of soda, you are simply added more gas to the stomach that will eventually get trapped in your digestive system. The result is excessive cramping and pain. There is zero nutritional value in soda, so instead of putting your stomach health at risk, consider the switch to flavored water instead. Soda removed from your diet will help your digestive system to heal and allow you to enjoy your meals each day.

3 Important Signs Your Stomach Acid Needs Medical AttentionĀ 

Stomach Problems

Stomach acid issues are an early indication of other potentially deadly diseases within the body. When you are experiencing issues with your stomach, you should never wait too long to bring it to the attention of your physician. Low stomach acid is a problem overlooked by many people suffering with this medical condition, and it has been linked to serious illnesses like asthma, rheumatoid arthritis, and even stomach cancer. When you experience stomach issues like excessive burping, heartburn, bloating, acid reflux, and nausea right after eating, these are important signs that your stomach acid needs medical attention. If you have concerns about your stomach acid, these three important symptoms can help you to identify a more serious issue that needs to be addressed.

You Feel Sick After Eating Meats

In order to put together the pieces of an illness, you need to actively be looking for patterns that occur during and after your eating. Feeling sick after consuming certain foods is an indication of a much more serious issue inside. Before you go jumping to conclusions about how meats are leading you to your stomach acid issues, however, understand how powerful the mind can be at triggering certain body functions. If you are aware of the dangers of eating certain types of meat, you hear about the dangers from television and your friends, and you read about the consequences online, your mind is going to react if you ever eat that meat.

If you know red meat is bad for you, but you eat it and worry the whole time that it can be bad for you, the mind responds by triggering the body to become sick. While you think your body is reacting, it could in fact be a case of low stomach acid, when your body does not have the tools to properly digest the food, so you become sick. Without the acid, the stomach has trouble breaking down the proteins in the meat, and you get cramps, start to vomit, or feel nauseous all day. This is not necessarily a meat issue – it can be an indication within the digestive system that the body is having problems completing the digestive process on more complex foods.
