Food to avoid for a happy tummy

For people who want to lose weight fast have to look out for the below listed food for the sack of your tummy! With the help of some Weight Loss Tips and by avoiding the below foods, I'm sure you will be able to have a fast weight loss.
  • Dairy - can be hard to digest mainly because of the naturally occurring sugar it contains - lactose.
  • Spicy food - something you want to avoid if you’re experiencing vomiting and diarrhea. They have no effect on some people, but cause problems for others.
  • Tomato sauce and citrus fruits - such as lemons, limes, oranges, and grapefruits, are acidic and can cause digestive problems. Even carbonated beverages are acidic.
  • Avoid high-fat foods - like butter, ice cream, and cheese should already be limited in your diet and will otherwise slow down your weight loss.
  • Deep fried foods - can either lead to diarrhea or causing you to feel full and bloated.
  • Processed foods - should be avoided if you are feeling constipated because they lack fiber, which helps regulate bowel movements. Often contain preservatives and artificial coloring, and people with allergies or sensitivities to these additives will feel their effects during digestive problems.
  • Artificial sweeteners - may upset your tummy.
  • Alcoholic drinks - nutritionally speaking, alcohol itself has no nutrients and will also give you extra “unwanted” calories and slow down your weight loss. Alcohol is toxic to the stomach and drinking too much can cause a variety of health problems.
  • Caffeine - is making contents move more quickly through your system, and excessive amounts can give anyone diarrhea. Remember that tea, soda, and chocolate are other sources of caffeine, and should be put on hold until tummy troubles go away.
  • Sweet or salty foods - can be hard to digest - small amounts can be included in a healthy diet. Chocolate, a sweet-tooth favorite, can cause digestive problems including heartburn.
