We’ve all been there: You’re sitting peacefully, minding your own business, when your stomach suddenly decides to belt out the song of its people. Surely there’s got to be some way to prevent those embarrassing gut grumbles, right?
As a matter of fact, there are several ways to minimize the noises coming from your stomach, according to a panel of experts on The Doctors. First up: Steer clear of foods that don’t agree with your gut. If you’re lactose-intolerant, for instance, stay away from milk, ice cream, and cheese lest you want all sorts of tummy trouble.
Secondly, avoid foods that create gas during digestion. (Carbonated drinks and artificial sweeteners are two big culprits here, according to Dr. Sonia Batra.)
You’d also be wise to avoid heavy meals, especially those containing foods that upset your stomach.
It’s worth mentioning that as embarrassing or distracting as your stomach’s grumbles can be at times, they’re actually good to hear: A lack of noise can indicate a number of problems, from a bowel obstruction to poor intestinal health, said Dr. Andrew Ordon. If you’re concerned about anything your stomach is doing, whether it’s making too many noises or too few, be sure to talk to your doctor ASAP.
