Is it normal to experience gas and bloating?
Bloating can be caused by high fiber content. On average, our diet plan 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 the Nutrisystem weight loss program. If your diet prior to joining the Nutrisystem® program 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.
