How do you prevent food babies?

i have a great stomach, before i eat anything. i can't eat anything substantial without getting a food baby. it sucks because i can't wear tight shirts out to dinner because i'll look pregnant when we leave. It's really bad with Asian food. i just ate an egg, one egg and my flat tummy bloated. i hate this. what's wrong with me. i love food but it's my enemy if i don't wanna wear baggy cloths

  • im familiar with the term food babies however i only get them when i overeat.. like if we order chinese food or something lol i will definitely get a food baby. i would be a little concerned if a small meal such as an egg made me bloat out though, you should discuss this with your doctor for sure.

  • Sounds like digestive issues due to sensitivities to certain foods.

  • i don't feel bad or sick or anything and it's everything i eat that makes me bloat. my best friend and i are exactly the same, we don't have food allergies. idk if it has to do with the fact that we're both really skinny. i hope not

  • It actually is a digestive issue. I eat the live culture yogurt daily.... that usually works for me!
