If you are suffering from sensitive stomach and have cramps when you eat food, then it is an alarming sign that you are not eating the right thing. Switch over to the fruit diet for some time till things get better. Eating fibre rich food will help you ease your stomach problems. Be it flatulence, constipation, vomiting or other bowel problems.

Oranges, bananas, starch filled vegetables such as potatoes, melons, mash melon etc can be consumed to add more fibre to your diet. This will further facilitate your digestive system and help promote good gut health. But do not mix up melon with cantaloupe for the same time. You can eat melon separately which boosts digestion but not with cantaloupe.

Cooked vegetables are also good for stomach problems. Potatoes are good as they have starch in them and they add bulk to your stomach. Do not chew gum or eat any thing that has artificial sweetners in them, these are not good for your stomach. Avoid it when you have stomach problems and do not aggravate its symptoms.

Do not combine protein and sugar together. These may reduce your metabolism rate. You can add yoghurt to your diet and ease the symptoms of digestion problems. If you like to change the flavour, you can add some yoghurt to the fruits you eat. This will appease your taste buds as well as ease your digestive problems.

Avoid spicy food and fried chips as they aggravate the symptoms of stomach problems. Flatulence, heart burning sensation and diarrhea may get severe with this. Do not forget to consume those fruits which have digestive enzymes in them such as papain and bromelain. Papaya contains papain and pine apple contains bromelain which are good for bringing about bowel movement.

Do not have both vegetables and fruits in the same meal. You can have them separately in different meals but not at the same time.

Consuming too much food at one sitting burdens the stomach; its digestive juices get diluted making them function less efficiently. Thus, you may taste the stomach acid and feel pain.

Any food with any flavour at all irritates your stomach. You must avoid soda also as they are not good for your body. Any thing else of acid content such as pickled food, tomatoes, standard table pepper, soft drinks & colas, lemon etc. Spicy chicken, fried fish etc must be avoided.
