3 Foods to Avoid if You Have Digestive Problems



People with a propensity toward digestive problems should refrain from eating “trigger” foods – foods that can cause a digestive response ranging from heartburn, to indigestion, abdominal pain and cramping, constipation or diarrhea. While each individual can come up with their own list of foods to avoid, there are three foods that are on most people’s lists:




While eating milk and dairy products is a great way to get calcium, it can also cause diarrhea, gas, cramps and abdominal pain for those that are lactose intolerant. Lactose intolerant happens when the body doesn’t produce enough of the enzyme lactase – the enzyme needed to break down the milk sugar lactose. People with Crohn’s disease, celiac disease or have undergone chemotherapy may become lactose intolerant due to damage caused in the intestines.


Most lactose intolerant can still eat yogurt and hard cheeses because these two dairy products do not contain lactose. And of course there is always lactose-free milk.


Spicy Foods


People with a sensitive stomach, irritable bowel syndrome or susceptible to chronic heartburn, should avoid spicy food. A digestive response from the capsaicin in peppers can range from indigestion to nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.


High Fat Foods


High fat foods include red meats, butter, creamy sauces, full-fat ice cream and fried foods. Because fat takes the longest to digest of all the macro-nutrients, it tends to stay in the digestive tract longer thus giving it more time to ferment and cause gas and bloating. People with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) especially need to limit their intake of high fat/fatty foods.


High Fiber


While fiber is good for a digestive tract, too much of it too soon can cause digestive problems of its own… in the form of gas and bloating. The right amount of fiber is 25 to 30 grams per day; people eating considerably less than this amount should slowly up the amount they are eating, giving their body time to adjust between each increase.


Sometimes digestive problems can occur if the good bacteria in the digestive tract get overridden by the bad. To keep the “good guys” in control:

  • Avoid detoxes as they usually get rid of the good bacteria.
  • Don’t use antibiotics unless necessary as they kill off good bacteria.
  • Eat foods with probiotics like yogurts and soy milks as they help promote good bacteria.


By avoiding foods that are known to cause digestive problems and doing things to promote the growth of healthy bacteria, digestive issues should be avoided for the most part. Listen to your digestive tract and learn how it reacts to certain types of foods. Then set up your own list of things to avoid eating.



Test: Mercedes G-Class against Range Rover P400e – Auto & Mobil — Archy news nety

On paper, the Range Rover P400e is all that the Mercedes G-Class is not: modern and economical. But the test shows: In reality, the hybrid SUV is just as a gas guzzler. Edgy, archaic, those are the first terms that come to mind when you see the Mercedes G-Class in the parking garage enthroned. A…

Are You Using Publishing Industry Standards?

How To Ebook

“The greatest enemy of knowledge is not ignorance, it is the illusion of knowledge.”~Stephen Hawking

Standards. Every industry is governed by standards. These are a set of criteria within an industry that defines the standard functioning and carrying out of operations.

The publishing industry has standards. Anyone involved in publishing and selling books should be aware of these standards.

Sadly, many independent authors don’t take the time to educate themselves on publishing industry standards. This lack of knowledge often becomes apparent when these authors interact with others in the industry. Then, these authors’ ignorance reflects poorly on themselves and their books.

“Everything she Forgot” by Lisa Ballantyne


“Margaret Holloway, deputy head teacher, mother, wife, did not know what had happened to her when she was a little girl, and she was terrified to find out”.

Everything she forgot” was also published under the title “Redemption Road“.

Blurb:They’re calling it the worst pile-up in London history. Driving home, Margaret Holloway has her mind elsewhere—on a troubled student, her daughter’s acting class, the next day’s meeting—when she’s rear-ended and trapped in the wreckage. Just as she begins to panic, a disfigured stranger pulls her from the car just seconds before it’s engulfed in flames. Then he simply disappears.
Though she escapes with minor injuries, Margaret feels that something’s wrong. She’s having trouble concentrating. Her emotions are running wild. More than that, flashbacks to the crash are also dredging up lost associations from her childhood, fragments of events that were wiped from her memory. Whatever…

Live Action Reviews! by Crystal Connor: El Pacto


When Monica learns that her daughter is dying she does anything she can to save her…

Master Imaginationist and Instagram photographer Crystal Connor is the Chief Imagineer working for the Department of Sleep Prevention’s Nightmare Division. A Washington State native she loves anything to do with monsters, bad guys (as in evil-geniuses & super-villains.  Not ‘those’ kind her mother warned her about), rogue scientific experiments, jewelry, sky-high high-heeled shoes & unreasonably priced handbags.

When she’s not terrorizing her fans and racking up frequent flyers miles by gallivanting all over the country attending fan conventions and writer’s conferences she reviews indie horror and science fiction films for both her personal blog and HorrorAddicts.net

She is also considering changing her professional title to dramatization specialist because it so much more theatrical than being a mere drama queen.
