HOW TO AVOID BLOATING
1. FIND OUT YOUR CONSTITUTION
The first step is to know your body a little bit more. So, take this test and find out what is your Ayurvedic constitution today. Knowing this important information can help you take wiser choices in regards to pretty much everything. There are three main constitutions in Ayurveda: Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. You will get the results of the quiz immediately.
This is the test in Spanish!
2. BE PRESENT WHEN EATING
Take observations of how you feel when eating your meals. Some foods will naturally bloat you while others will leave your stomach flat even after eating. Take that data into consideration.
In addition, take a look at my Ayurvedic Food Guidelines to eat the foods that agree with your constitution. Use it at home and to eat out.

3. RIGHT COOKING
Take into account your body type and cook your meals accordingly. Often times, if you are suffering from bloating, it’s because you are Vata aggravated, therefore warm, well cooked foods are preferable than raw or cold meals.
4. USE HEALTHY OILS
On everything! Use my list of foods to guide you through which oils are best for your constitution and use those. Be mindful of the quantity but, try to always add a healthy fat to your meals.
5. ADD THE RIGHT SPICES
When bloated, the best spices to use are Vata pacifying. It is then good to use ginger, black pepper, hing, turmeric, and cummin.
6. DON’T DRINK COLD WATER!
This is a huge mistake people often make. Not only it affects your digestion but, will likely make you bloated. Try drinking warm or room temperature instead to keep your agni or digestive fire healthy.
7. AVOID OVEREATING
How to avoid bloating? Eat at maximum 70-75% of your capacity.
Also, being mindful of your first burp helps a lot. That’s a clear sign your body sends to stop eating.
It is definitely best not to overeat. Ayurveda and Modern Science agree on this one. The MD Anderson Cancer Center shows in a study that overeating can cause various issues including discomfort, hormonal imbalances, heartburn, and -yes, you guessed it – bloating.
Hope this helps with the bloating!
