Better Ways To Beat The Belly Bloat

There’s nothing to start off your day on the wrong foot like a bloated belly. You tried on your favorite jeans yesterday and they looked slammin’. You put them on today, and they look two sizes too small due to a serious case of muffin top and belly overhang. No, you didn’t gain five pounds in the last 24 hours, you’ve fallen victim to the dreaded belly bloat. Here are five ways to help beat the belly bloat and lose the muffin top!

Avoid Foods That Can Cause a Bloated Belly: These include salty foods, starches (like potatoes, pasta, and breads made with wheat) and carbonated drinks. Avoid raw veggies, and opt for lightly steamed vegetables instead. They will be easier for you to digest, meaning less bloat-producing gas in your GI tract.

Water, that is! It seems counter intuitive, but when you’re feeling bloated drinking plenty of water can help restore your body’s natural balance and reduce bloating. Nine glasses of water a day is the recommended amount for women. If you’re exercising or spending time in a hot environment, add more H2O to replenish fluids lost from sweating.
