U.S. News & World Report: Foods That Cause Bloating

9 of 10

Bulky Meals

Perhaps it's not surprising that chowing down on a large quantity of food in one short sitting can trigger GI problems. When your stomach is fully expanded, it can hold about six cups of food – think six tennis balls, Sass says. High-volume meals can cause a bloated look. "That includes salads, so focus on portion sizes," Middleberg says. "It's especially important at restaurants, where you have less control." Aim to leave at least a quarter of your food on your plate, or if you're opting for a salad, ask the chef to remove half the lettuce.
