Bloating, gas, farts, burps – the sexy side of eating. But it’s not inevitable. There are some very simple things you can do right now to minimize this side of digestion that might keep you from getting sexy with your man.
- Chew your food. Chewing your food like a mofo does two things. 1 – it slows you down so you’re not rushing to eat (more on that in point 3), and 2- it increases the surface area of your food so that your stomach and intestines have less work to do. When you swallow an entire cow without chewing it, that meat sits and ferments in your stomach for hours, causing all sorts of digestive fun down there. So chew your food.
- Save your drinks for later – if you sit down to eat and have a massive gulp (or few) of water, pop whatever, you’re doing 2 things: 1- you’re washing away all the digestive enzymes and stomach acid needed to digest your food, and 2 – you’re filling your stomach with liquid which will make you eat less. While this last part sounds like it may be a good idea, it’s not. You need to get nutrients from food, if you fill up on water you’ll miss out on all the goodness your bod needs.
- Relax will you? FFS* – I can’t tell you how many people I’ve seen shovel their food in. If you have chronic heartburn, this could be why. Also when you’re stressed out and eating, you are not sending the right messages to your digestive system to do the work it needs to do. So calm the fuck down while eating.
Pick one of these things this week and report back here in the comments to let me know how it worked for you.
