There could be a number of triggers or reasons for indigestion, bloating, etc., and this varies greatly depending on the person. One of the most common triggers could be intolerance to a specific food, which again could be different for each individual, so one great way to help identify the trigger is keeping a food journal. This is basically writing down what you eat and what time, and then writing down when you're symptoms appear, what they are, and what time. There could be many other triggers for digestive issues, just some of which are: lack of digestive enzymes, lack of healthy gut bacteria, IBS, celiac disease, water and sodium intake, etc.). So if keeping a food and symptom journal doesn't help, the best advice would be to work with a health professional such as dietitian to help understand and troubleshoot what the issue might be (also, keeping a food journal before seeing a health professional such as a dietitian is always a good idea).
