When you are having indigestion, there are certain foods you should avoid.
Here are 7 foods you should avoid when you are having tummy issues
1. Ice cream
Ice cream should be avoided when you are having problems with digestion because ice cream is known to cause cramping, bloating and indigestion.
2. Spicy foods
Spicy foods can stimulate the digestive system so they should be avoided when you are experiencing nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.
Beans is another food you should avoid if you are having problems with digestion. While high in fibre and protein, beans also contain a type of sugar known as oligosaccharide which is difficult to digest.
4. Citrus fruits
Citrus fruits such as lemon, oranges and grapefruits should be avoided when you have a stomach upset because they are known to cause digestive problems due to their acidic nature.
5. Fried foods
Fried foods are another food you should avoid when having issues with digestion because they are high in fat and full of grease.
6. Processed foods
Processed foods should be avoided if you are having issues with digestion because they lack fibre which helps regulate bowel movements. Some processed foods also contain lactose which can worsen the situation.
Drinking too much alcohol can cause indigestion and it should be avoided when you are feeling nauseated.
