Here are some common eating-related problems that can upset your digestive health:
- Eating too quickly. It can take 15-20 minutes for your stomach to tell your brain it’s full, so eating too fast means you’re likely to over eat and have more to digest.
- Gulping down food. When you gulp, you swallow air, which can lead to trapped wind and poor digestion.
- Eating big, heavy meals. These take longer to digest and make your system work harder.
- Eating late at night. Your digestive system is at its least efficient at the end of the day.
Foods & drinks
What might trigger diarrhoea for one person could be fine for another – everyone is different.
Remember, your symptoms might not be caused by the food you’ve just eaten, but by what you ate the day before. Or it may not be the food at all, but how quickly, how late or how much you ate.
How to spot your problem foods or eating habits
If you have diarrhoea that might be caused by eating a certain food (or eating in a certain way), you can try to identify the trigger food (or eating habit) by keeping a diary of what you eat every day (and when and how you eat it) and when you have the symptom.
