You wake up feeling confident, excited, and so ready for the beach. The weather is perfect, the sun is shining, and your new pair of shades is waiting for you in your beach bag. All you have to do is eat breakfast, put on your flip flops, and you’re ready to go.
You eat an omelette with onions and broccoli with a glass of milk on the side — what you devised as a fabulous healthy breakfast choice to energize and fuel you for the stomach-bared day ahead.
But then the worst happens: bloating.

Before you eat something that will set you up for a day of bloat and embarrassing gas, look over this list to make sure you aren’t putting yourself — and your stomach — through unnecessary discomfort.
