In brief: Candida

Great question about sugary foods and bloating.
One possibility is that you have an overgrowth of yeast in your intestines, called candida. Candida makes us crave sugary foods but also we get very bloated when we eat them. Have you ever used a probiotic? This helps control the overgrowth of yeast in our system and helps a lot with bloating and nausea.
