You're not alone if you've ever felt bloated after a meal. It's a common feeling, and it can happen to anyone, regardless of their weight.
Bloating is caused by the body’s inability to digest certain foods properly. The reason for this varies from person to person, but diet plays a huge role.
Some people find that certain foods make them feel bloated more often than others. For example, people who are lactose intolerant may experience bloating after consuming dairy products, while those who have a gluten intolerance may experience bloating after eating wheat or other grains. Those on a high-fiber diet may also notice more frequent bloating because fiber can't be digested easily by the body.
