By the way I find white bread very bloating, some bakers bread worse than others and I do still enjoy a slice of white bread toasted, however its not just white bread I've noticed it can be where bakers use the commercial white flour to bake scones, cakes pastry etc.

I think its ok to have some of these food items but I find if I have too much I get bloating, it makes so much difference to how you feel not having a bloated tummy. Sometimes I can get a bloat if I have wholemeal bread which I find lays heavy on my tummy.

I find malted granary bread non bloating, light on the tummy and is good fresh and toasted. :)

What is thi Avril?

I do qigong, tai chi type moves which I find very relaxing and calming, its like meditation to movement and if you can get your chi flowing smoothly it is of course good for health.  I attend a class once a week and do medical qigong workshops occasionally, I start with doing the shortly video practises on you tube, you can try it for 10 mins 7 mins, 15 mins, 20 mins etc.  the names I would recommend on you tube, are Don Fiore and Lee Holden, they are very good at explaining, Don Fiore is a more risk free instructor, Lee Holden is a bit more challenging and in any case, its always best to check with your doc first of course if you haven't done any exercise for some time.

Just listening to relaxing music can de stress or one of your tube videos with music, there are some reall good ones, I particularly like Nature by Numbers video by Crystobal Vila with music by Wim Mertens, Often a Bird.

Not sure if video links such as these are permitted,  will try one and if you want the others and its ok can post or send you pm with links.
