Beat the Bloat, Blah and Discoloration: 10 Foods and Drinks to Avoid Pre-Wedding


10
Beans

Beans are packed full of protein and are an excellent source of dietary fiber, but they're also synonymous with something else that's less than desirable: flatulence. Beans contain soluble fiber and raffinose, a sugar that isn't digestible. As the food enters the large intestine, bacteria attempts to break it down, often resulting in gas and a great deal of discomfort. To avoid bloating and belly pain before your wedding, swap beans for other foods high in protein, like poultry and fish.
