I feel bloated right after having coffee. Also it wrecks up my gut so bad I get small pimples on my forehead the next day. Any reason why this is happening? And does that mean I can't have coffee ever?
Hi Pooja! Coffee does slow down your gastric emptying also it increases gastric acid production. Hence the bloating & gut issues. Also if your coffee is high on sugar & milk the symptoms can be worse, or if you're taking coffee on an empty stomach. About the acne, that can be related to the heightened stress response from the caffeine. You definitely don't need to stop having coffee, just make sure not to overindulge & have light coffees. Decaffeinated varieties can work too.

Hi ...Pooja, try taking a glass of water before your cup of coffee. This may lower the gastric impact. As rightly suggested, choose a sugarless & decaffeinated option and see if that works better !!
Thanks for the information. I'll surely try and let you know
