What causes bloated stomach?

I m dieting. I ate an apple on an empty stomach at 6:00 AM, and everything was fine. At 8:30 AM I ate 2 ounces of Jenno s turkey breast. Within 10 minutes, my stomach became bloated and cramped. Did the apple NOT digest before I ate the turkey? I was told to eat fruit on an empty stomach, wait 2 hours and eat again.

Your symptoms seem to be related to bloating.

It can be related to your diet.

I suggest you to use simethicone medication daily to relieve the bloating.

Limit your intake of carbonated drinks.

Avoid foods that cause gas, such as vegetables in the cabbage family, dried beans, and lentils.

Eat slowly and avoid drinking through a straw.

Use lactose-free dairy products.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
