Avoid Eating These 6 Foods On Your First Date

Shadrack Olaka




Whether we admit it or not, everyone gets gas from time to time. Gas is always caused by swallowing air and the breaking down of food in your digestive tract. The consequences are usually feeling bloated, burping, or passing gas or farting to be precise.
Some people have more gas than others, which may be embarrassing or uncomfortable especially when around friends or other people.
If you’re going for your first date or even romantic evening, don’t dare eat any of the following foods otherwise you may live regretting or staying with the bad memories for a very long time.

1. Beans
These are probably at the top of the list without any doubt. Why..? They contain a lot of raffinose, which is a complex sugar that the body has trouble digesting.
Raffinose is broken down by bacteria in the large intestines producing hydrogen, carbon dioxide, and methane gas, which exits through the rectum.

2. Sodas

Sodas and other carbonated drinks can add significantly to the amount of air you swallow. When the air gets into your digestive tract, it has to pass through somehow. This causes burping and may also increase the amount of gas you pass.

3. Dairy products
Most dairy products contain this sugar called lactose. People who have a shortage of enzyme lactase have a difficulty digesting lactose which is known as lactose intolerance which also causes a lot of gas in the intestines.

4. Chewing gum
This seems an unlikely source of gas, but chewing gum can make you swallow air.
5. Hardy candy
Like carbonated drinks, sucking on hard candy can cause you to swallow extra air.
Many of these candies also use sortibol as a sweetener. These two factors can contribute to extra gas.

6. Processed foods
They contain a variety of ingredients including fructose and lactose. This combination can lead to increased gas.
