Ive been diagnosed with IBS and THAT too can make you bloat easily. I try to eat as light and as many "small meals" (and/or protein bars) during the day and i try to save my ROUGHAGE for MOSTLY late day /early evening. THAT HELPS my IBS (bloating) by "cleaning out my system" EVERY MORNING like clockwork which helps lead to a flatter and more comfortable tummy! GOTTA have those whole grains and fresh fruits and veges! I also take BEANO for the discomfort, its NATURAL and it works GREAT!!!!! Trial and error!!! Everyones different!!!
