Do you want to banish your bloating? We’ve got you covered!
Bloating is super common but is a total nuisance to deal with. It can make you feel lethargic, self-conscious and can totally dull your mood.
The good news is, there are things you can do to reduce bloating fast! Here are our top tips and tricks to help you say goodbye to your bloating.
#1 Allow at least 3 hours between meals
Did you know that food stays in the stomach for approximately 3 hours before moving through the rest of your digestive system? This is exactly the reason why you should allow at least 3 hours between meals or snacks!
Those who are prone to bloating generally have quite a sensitive digestive system that can easily be overloaded by eating too much, or too frequently. If you are already bloated, or easily prone to it, it’s best to leave adequate time between meals and snacks so your body can process the food and digest it more effectively.
#2 Eat more debloating foods
Yes, there are foods you can eat to help beat the bloat!
Certain foods have a diuretic effect, which means it helps excrete excess fluid from the body to reduce bloating. Other foods contain digestive enzymes that naturally help break down food for easy digestion.
What do these foods have in common? They are all delicious fruits and vegetables!
#3 Drink peppermint tea
Peppermint tea does wonders for your digestive system. In fact, research shows that it has the ability to relax the digestive system which may help reduce bloating.
It also has the ability to decrease abdominal cramps and pain that is associated with bloating. So next time your stomach feels a little upset, sip on some peppermint tea!
#4 Incorporate mindful eating
Did you know that digestion actually begins in the brain? The brain is what signals your body to produce digestive enzymes and juices that help break down food once you start eating.
Unfortunately, eating mindlessly impairs this process. That means eating too quickly, eating in front of TV, your laptop, your phone, or even eating whilst in a stressful situation negatively affects digestion and increases bloating.
So what should you do instead? Be fully in the moment when you eat. Eliminate all distractions, spend at least 20 minutes eating your main meals, and pay attention to the taste, smell and textures of your food to increase your digestive ability.
#5 Fix your gut health
If bloating is a recurring concern for you, it is time to look at improving your gut health for good.
