Brief Answer: Please see the details Detailed Answer: Hello! Thanks for putting your query in XXXXXXX I am a Gastroenterologist (DM). Bloating is produced due to intake of indigestible sugars which is then fermented by bacteria present in our gastrointestinal tract. What you all have to do is: 1. Do regular aerobic exercise at least 30 minutes / day 2. If you are obese or overweight then you should reduce your weight again by exercise and low caloric diet 3. Wear loose clothes 4.Observe when you take milk or milk products whether these symptoms worsen, if yes then please avoid them. Also avoid vegetables like cabbage, pea, and beans 5.
