For weight reduction you need to reduce total calorie intake per day. Maintain a dairy to calculate your daily calorie intake, need to take balanced diet. As you are taking food rich in fiber content it's good for health, do continue that. For your distension problem you need to fallow few healthy habits in your life style.
Avoid carbonated drinks in your diet, as they form gas inside.
Eat slowly.
Donot sleep immedietly after food.
For short term relief you can take antacids.
Hope this will help to solve your problem.
Get well soon, take care
