This can be alleviated with reducing the foods that produce gas, increasing
physical activity, and maintaining a healthy diet.
1. Avoid the following foods, as they tend to produce gas: onions,
soda, beans, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, and broccoli. Dairy
products should be eliminated.
2. Increase physical activity by taking a twenty-minute walk after
meals. The last meal should be eaten no later than 7 PM. Do not smoke or
drink coffee; green tea is a good substitute.

the orange peel and drink after meals.
