You might wake up with a flat stomach and be carrying a three-pound food baby by the time you go to bed. Belly fat, on the other hand, doesn’t fluctuate this markedly unless you dramatically over- or undereat.
If you were to measure your waist at the navel every morning and night, you’d see this clearly. If the culprit is bloating, readings would vary widely. If belly fat is to blame, however, readings would be consistent.
The main reason why you have inflated stomach, but you haven’t overeaten is that the intestinal bacteria reacts to gluten, according to a new study. If a person is intolerant to gluten, then he or she might have celiac disease. Gluten can be found in cereals like barley, wheat, and rye.
When the person with celiac disease spends gluten the immune system starts responding with damage to the small intestine, causing abdominal pain, diarrhea, bloating, and fatigue.
What you need to do?
First of all you have to stop consuming gluten foods for a period of 7 days, so if you see improvements, then continue with consuming that kind of foods. But, if there are no improvements, you have to visit a doctor as the issue might not be caused by the gluten.
A lot of people have extra weight due to allergic reaction from gluten, and because of that you should try this diet.
Research shows that approximately 70% of the world’s population can’t properly digest lactose, which is the sugar contained in dairy.
The reason for this is the intestines fail to produce enough of an enzyme called lactase, which is required to fully digest lactose.
The undigested lactose passes through the small intestine unabsorbed and when it lands in the large intestine, bacteria eat it and produce gas as a byproduct.
This expansion in the large intestine creates the swollen, bloated stomach, and diarrhea is common as well.
