If your high-fibre diet is coupled with protein-rich diet, it may lead to more bloating as compared to high-fibre diet paired with carb-rich diet.
High-fibre diets are said to cause a little bloating by stimulating some fibre-digesting gut bacteria species, which produce gas as a by-product. Fibre is an important nutrient that should be consumed regularly, but its excessive consumption may not be good for you if you are watching your waistline. And, if your high-fibre diet is coupled with protein-rich diet, it may further lead to even more bloating. However, if high-fibre diet is paired with carb-rich diet, it may not escalate the problem that much. The study was conducted by researchers at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.
The findings of the study that were published in the journal Clinical and Translational Gastroenterology, also suggest a role for "macronutrients" such as carbs and proteins in modifying the gut bacteria population - the microbiome.
