02 Apr Why Do I Feel Uncomfortable After Eating?
If you are feeling uncomfortable after eating, the questions below may begin to point to some clues. Anything from stress, to your diet, may be influencing how you feel after you eat.
If you’re feeling uncomfortable after eating, consider the following:
- Could dairy be upsetting your digestion?
- Is stress robbing you of more than you realise?
- Are you eating something that you may have an intolerance to?
Could dairy be upsetting your digestion?
Dairy has been known to cause discomfort after eating in people of all ages, ranging from new born babies to the elderly. Symptoms of dairy intolerance usually begin within 30 minutes of consuming dairy, which could include bloating, gas, abdominal pain or diarrhoea.
Is stress robbing you of more than you realise?
One of the first parts of our body to suffer as a result of stress is our ability to digest food properly. Try to avoid any form of over-eating or eating on the run etc. Simple things in life such as eating slowly, can make a big difference. A relaxed, unhurried atmosphere is ideal for digestion.
Are you eating something that you may have an intolerance to?
Some of the common foods people have an intolerance to are: wheat, gluten, dairy, nuts, soya, eggs and seafood. You could experiment by cutting out of your diet any suspected food intolerance to see if it improves how you feel. Try avoiding all wheat and corn for 30 days and see if your condition improves.
