To get to the root of the problem, you will need to rule out these causes by making some easy changes.
Cut down on foods known to cause wind and bloating, such as beans, onions, broccoli, cabbage, sprouts and cauliflower.
Make sure you get enough fibre in your diet and your five a day in order to prevent constipation which can lead to bloating.
On top of that, you need to drink lots of water and exercise regularly.
If you talk and eat at the same time, or eat standing up or slumped on a sofa, you could swallow too much air and become bloated.
Fizzy drinks and chewing gum could have the same effect, so stop consuming tor chewing these to see if that makes a difference.
Food intolerance can lead to bloating when the reaction to the food causes too much gas to be produced and it gets trapped.
You will have heard of wheat, gluten or dairy intolerances, and these could be affecting you.
Keep a food diary for a couple of weeks, noting down what triggers your bloating.
