How To Stop Farting

Author: Adam MacDougall   Date Posted:8 August 2018 

Who doesn't enjoy a good joke about flatulence? 

A well placed Fart can be comedy gold that can bring the whole house down in more ways than one.

But what happens when your farts are so regular or so violent that they stop being funny? You know you are starting to have a problem when you poison the cat with your toxic bottom.

Did you know that most people pass wind between 14 and 23 times per day? Yes, even ladies pass wind. However, most farts are silent and not violent (no smell).

So what causes Farting?
One way is that you are swallowing air while you eat or drink. Smaller, slower sips and bites will reduce the amount of air you gulp, then combined with chewing your food more thoroughly should help reduce the gas.

Foods that will increase gas are protein, milk, carbohydrates and seeds pretty much all the healthy stuff in life.

How to reduce the Farts

Movement 
Get off your gassy ass and get moving and exercising!  

Reduce or limit these foods  
Beans, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cheese, cauliflower, gum, and onions.

Increase these in your diet 
Garlic, cinnamon, ginger, peppermint, cumin, and dill. Sprinkle these into your food, Man Shake, or have it as a tea. 

Increase your Fibre 
Fibre helps digest protein, and the Man Shake has 7.5 grams. However, a grown man needs 30 to 38 grams a day, so you may need to look at what else your eating and increase it. 

Food high in fibre
Vegetables such as broccoli, carrots and sweetcorn. Peas, beans and pulses.

Fruit such as berries, pears, melon and oranges.

Probiotics
The new formulation for the Man Shake contains a Probiotic but if you are looking for a little extra Plain Greek Yogurt is a great natural way to get some. Also tastes pretty good in a Man Shake blended up with some ice and frozen berries. 

Time 
Your body is probably not used to eating so healthy it is normal for any change in diet that it can take time for your body to adjust and regulate.   Ensure that you are drinking plenty of water, the recommended amount is around 2-3 litres per day.
