2- Add a probiotic into your supplement routine. These should be taken with cold water just before you eat a meal. This will increase the good bacteria in your gut, and promote regular digestion. You can also add probiotic-rich foods into your diet. There are several foods that are high in probiotics, such as yogurt (try the Greek kind for less sugar), fermented vegetables (kimchee, sauerkraut, pickles), tempeh (fermented soybean), seaweed, miso soup, and kombucha tea.
5. SLOW DOWN! Inhaling your food is tough on your tummy. This might seem obvious, but it can be a challenging one to beat. I have a tendency to wait until I'm really hungry to eat (especially after a big workout), and then I get really excited for food! Sometimes, I like to watch the clock and make sure I'm really chewing each mouthful of food to prevent tummy troubles and overeating.
I hope these tips help you with any digestion issues you might be experiencing. If you're really having a difficult time, try keeping track of what times you're eating, what foods seem to be triggering your stomach pains, and how quickly you're eating.
