Prevent Stomach Aches After Eating

That white pasta covered in cheese looks great, doesn’t it? How about that fat, juicy cheeseburger? Or maybe you’re in the mood for chocolate – and you’re craving lots of it!

The problem occurs when after what you thought a great meal looked like and what seemed to be very satisfying at the time, now an hour later you’re paying the price for your indulgence. Your stomach aches, you may have gas, or you may be bloated beyond belief.

What just happened?

Ingredients That Promote Stomach Aches

In most cases, the foods you eat and the way they are prepared contribute to this condition. Our bodies may have trouble digesting certain foods due to the way they break down in the body.

Here are a few examples of ingredients that might be causing your stomach aches.

  1. Hydrogenated Oils – These oils have been chemically altered and deplete your body of resources used for other digestive functions.
  2. Raffinose. This carbohydrate is not well-digested by the human body and is found in Brussels sprouts, cabbage, broccoli, and asparagus. It may be best to steam these vegetables lightly till bright coloured if you notice problems after eating them.
  3. Lactose. You might be intolerant to dairy products, meaning that your body doesn’t have the enzyme required to break them down. You might already know to avoid diary foods, but also remember to avoid foods prepared using dairy products too.
  4. Sugars. Sugars not only causes insulin resistance, they also contribute to nutritional imbalances and acidity. Watch out for anything using high fructose corn syrup as an ingredient.
  5. Artificial Sweetners. Some artificial sweeteners, such as sorbitol, can lead to stomach aches and diarrhea.

As this list of ingredients are in many of the mainstream foods you find in your local grocery store, it is important for you to read labels when shopping. Unfortunately eating out can sometimes also be a concern unless you know the exact ingredients the cooks are using, or if you know the chef. Either way, keeping an eye out and understanding what’s in your food, is your first step in relieving those annoying stomach aches in the future.
