1. Fried food
Experts suggest skipping fried foods because they cause heartburn and bloating or swelling.

2. Beans
We all know they cause gas, so save yourself the embarrassment.

3. Garlic
It not only lingers on your breath but in your body odour and seeps out of your pores.

4. Broccoli
Same with other cruciferous vegetables like cauliflower and cabbage: they all cause gas.

5. Red meat
Skip a burger to avoid digestive issues and body odour while it stagnates in your digestive tract.

6. Spicy food
Anything spicy can cause an upset stomach and bladder irritation.

7. Apples
They aren't easy to digest and can make you gassy.
