Bloated Stomach

A bloated stomach is when you feel like your stomach is swollen after a meal. Some of the primary causes of bloating are excessive gas production and problems in the digestive tract movement. Avoid eating a lot in a single meal, take digestive enzymes supplements, do not drink aerated drinks, and limit alcohol consumption to prevent bloating.
