What You Can Do Right Now to Banish Belly Bloat



If you want to fight belly fat, burning calories and fat through cardio — especially interval training — is your best bet. Bloating, on the other hand, is its own beast, and you can't feel like you're rocking your bathing suit if your belly is super puffy. Luckily, there are easy ways to reduce bloating so that you can show off that tummy you've been working so hard to get.

Put this down: Not only is too much sodium bad for your heart, but it will also cause you to retain water — and not just in your belly — so stop yourself the next time you reach for the salt shaker. Extra sprinkles aren't the only way we consume too much sodium. Limit high-sodium foods such as hot dogs, cottage cheese, bacon, soy sauce, and chips.

Sip this: When you're belly is bloated, filling up on water seems like the last thing you want to do, but it helps prevent bloat in two ways. When you're not drinking enough fluids, your body retains water to prevent dehydration. So sipping nature's beverage can actually reduce water retention. Drinking water also prevents constipation, which is another cause of a bloated belly. Also include foods with high water content such as watermelon, celery, grapefruit, and cucumbers.
