How to eat more fiber while preventing gassiness

“The key is to drink more water to prevent gassiness…If there is not enough water in your system, too much fiber can cause slower movement through the digestive system, which in turn leads to bloating and gassiness. Be sure to drink lots of room temperature water in between (rather than during) meals so it’s there to be used by your digestive system when you need it to process all that fiber. Drinking too much water at meals can dilute digestive enzymes and slow down digestion, also contributing to bloating.”  —Radical Beauty: How to Transform Yourself from the Inside Out, Deepak Chopra & Kimberly Snyder, 2016: 39
