Is it normal to experience gas and bloating?

Bloating can be caused by high fiber content. On average, our diet provides 25-35 grams of fiber a day. Although this quantity aligns with the Daily Recommended Intake for fiber, many people do not consume this amount prior to joining Nutrisystem. If your diet prior to Nutrisystem® was lower in fiber, the increase could be a cause of bloating.

You can make minor adjustments while your body gets accustomed to the fiber intake. You can switch to 100% fruit juice and use only cooked vegetables. Transitioning into higher fiber options slowly will help your body adjust. As always, drinking plenty of water can be helpful as well.
