Low-carb di­ets, win­ter safety, high-fiber foods, and more

Give it time. While gas is nor­mal and a sign of a healthy gas­troin­testi­nal tract, up­ping fiber can cause changes to your mi­cro­biome and bowel move­ments, which may ( sigh) give you more gas. But those changes are usu­ally short-term. In gen­eral, peo­ple who reg­u­larly eat a high-fiber diet don’t have more gas than those who eat less. To re­duce GI side ef­fects, slowly in­crease how much fiber you eat each day. An­other tip: Cook beans at home. Many gas­caus­ing agents get caught in the cook­ing liq­uid, so ei­ther rinse canned beans or use fresh wa­ter to rinse and boil dried beans. Over-the-counter sup­ple­ments like Bean-o are OK op­tions too.
