Broccoli and Cabbage

Both broccoli and cabbage are the best among the "cruciferous" vegetables. They are not only rich in vitamins and dietary fiber, but also have anti-cancer and anti-aging effects. But even though they are rich in dietary fiber and many nutrients, these vegetables cannot be completely trusted to be healthy. Because high-fiber vegetables can help expand your stomach capacity, it is easy to cause excess gas to accumulate in the stomach.

 

Chocolate

Eating a lot of chocolate will not only bring excess calories, but also people who suffer from gastroesophageal reflux disease have experienced uncomfortable stimulation after eating chocolate. This is because chocolate can cause the relaxation of the lower esophageal sphincter, allowing stomach acid to reflux and stimulate the esophagus and pharynx.

 

Citrus juice

Acidic drinks can irritate the esophagus, stimulate the sensory nerves, and the irritated area will become red and swollen.

If you drink a large glass of citrus juice first thing in the morning, it will increase the acidity in your stomach. If you drink sweet lemonade with high concentration of fructose at this time, you should pay more attention, because excessive intake of sugar can cause diarrhea.

 

Beans

Beans are notorious for causing indigestion. The oligosaccharides contained in beans, such as stachyose and raffinose, are fermented by intestinal bacteria, which can decompose and produce some gas, which in turn causes symptoms such as hiccups, bowel sounds, bloating, and abdominal pain.

People with severe peptic ulcer should not eat soy products, because the content of purine in soy products is high, which can promote the secretion of gastric juice.

People with acute gastritis and chronic superficial gastritis should not eat soy products, so as not to stimulate gastric acid secretion and cause flatulence.

 

Raw onion

Onions, garlic, and leeks are full of various nutrients. They are good for health, such as protecting the heart, but they can also cause gastrointestinal discomfort, such as flatulence, abdominal cramps, etc. But cooking seems to make the gastrointestinal upset-causing nutrient mix less of a bad thing.

 

Creamy Mashed Potatoes

Potatoes are low-calorie, high-protein foods that contain a variety of vitamins and trace elements, and are known as ideal weight-loss foods. There seems to be few things people love more than a bowl of mashed potatoes. That's why when it comes to so-called "convenience foods," mashed potatoes always top the list.

But mashed potatoes with cream or cheese are not as good as expected. There are 30-50 million lactose intolerant people in the United States, but if you are one of them, creamy mashed potatoes are not for you. This is because milk, cream or cheese added to mashed potatoes can make your stomach feel uncomfortable.

 

Ice cream

There's no quick way to tell if you're lactose intolerant other than when you sit down to a big bowl of ice cream. When you have bloating, cramps, and gas, your body's response is to tell you to stay away from dairy-rich foods.

If you eat too much raw and cold food such as ice cream, popsicles, and cold drinks, it will affect the normal operation of the gastrointestinal function, making the food difficult to digest and easily damaging the spleen and stomach. Although it is delicious when eaten, it will lead to loss of appetite and stimulate the spleen and stomach, forming a vicious circle of abdominal distension and abdominal pain.

 

Fried food

Fried foods such as fried chicken nuggets and French fries are inevitably rich in oil and high fat, and the accumulation of these two substances in the stomach will cause disease. Oils and fats produce a substance called "acrylic acid" at high temperatures, which is difficult to digest.

Tara Gidus, a nutritionist in Orlando, Florida, said: "If you already suffer from gastroenteritis and other diseases, you should pay special attention to eating less oily and fatty fried foods, otherwise it will cause some discomfort symptoms. , such as nausea, diarrhea, etc.

 

Spicy food

Chili peppers or jalapenos can irritate the lining of the esophagus, causing a nasty heartache after eating and adding to the burden on the stomach. Even if you want to chill it with some sour cream, you still get the same kick. Also, add something like sour cream and suffer other side effects instead.
