Best and Worst Foods for Bloating

An apple a day may save you a trip to the doctor’s office, but it does not keep the bloat away. High in fiber, apples also contain fructose and sorbitol, sugars found in fruits that many people can’t tolerate, Sass says. The result? You guessed it: gas and the inevitable puffy feeling.

Apples are a great snack, however: One fruit provides an average of 4.5 grams of protein and around 10% of your daily vitamin C requirement, so don’t give up on them altogether. “Eating apples specifically has been linked to a lower risk of heart disease and respiratory problems, including asthma, bronchitis, and emphysema,” Sass says. Eat them in moderation and separately from meals, and time your eating right: “If you’ll be wearing a form-fitting outfit or bathing suit, you might not want to reach for an apple,” Sass says. Other fruits that bloat: pear, peaches, and prunes.
