10 Foods to Avoid in a New Relationship

Most people pass gas or belch more than 20 times a day - but that seems to be WAY exacerbated when in a new relationship, perhaps because you are hyper conscious and desperate to make a good appearance. No one wants to be that person. Fear not, we’ve got you covered. Here are the top 10 foods you should avoid in the throes of a new relationship.

Brussels Sprouts

brussels sprouts

Goes without saying - ALWAYS pass on the sprouts.



Lots of fruit contain a sugar called sorbitol that causes excessive gas. Peaches are one of the main culprits, also avoid apples and pears.

Also a starch. No romantic ‘Lady and the Tramp’ spaghetti sharing moment for you!

So there you have it folks, looks like the next few months of your life is going to be pretty bland, but being in a new couple should make up for it.
