Bloating Culprit's Worst Vegetables For Weight Loss

1. Broccoli

Broccoli is loaded with beneficial nutrients, such as dietary fiber, potassium, and vitamin E.


Fantastic vegetable to consume to maintain your weight loss goals. 


However, it is also a member of the cruciferous vegetable family and contains raffinose, a carbohydrate also found in legumes, cabbage, and asparagus.

2. Cauliflower

Similar to broccoli, cauliflower contains raffinose, a non-digestible carbohydrate that requires an enzyme that humans do not have. 


Due to the absence of this enzyme, raffinose is transported directly to the colon, where it is identified by intestinal bacteria and fermented into gas.

3. Brussel Sprouts

Great news for those with irregular bowel movements, and also beneficial for weight loss, as you can be certain that it aids in the elimination of impurities.

Brussel Sprouts

All of this gas buildup in the colon, however, contributes to both accidental gas discharge (never pleasant at an event) and stomach bloating.

Brussel Sprouts

Which is also found in Brussels sprouts, functions as a stool softener in the large intestine, which is excellent news. 

4. Onions

All varieties of onions, including leeks in soups and red onions in salads, contain fructan, a form of carbohydrate.


The body absorbs fructan poorly, which causes water retention in the intestine, which causes — you guessed it — gastric bloating.
