Mehmet Oz, MD, Cardiology, answeredStarches are carbohydrates that are sometimes difficult for the stomach to digest and can cause bloating. Heavy starches such as bread, potatoes and pasta can cause water retention. Any food products made from flour, especially whole-wheat flour, form gas when broken down in the large intestine. Beware of eating these types of food before bedtime to avoid feeling inflated in the morning.
