How to get rid of belly bloat

Have you ever experienced that uncomfortable feeling of your belly being bloated? It can make you feel super sluggish and even self-conscious. But there are ways to get rid of it and even prevent it from happening. 

Belly bloat can be caused by a variety of factors, including:

1. Stay Hydrated

It may seem counterintuitive, but staying hydrated can actually help reduce belly bloat. When you’re dehydrated, your body holds onto water, leading to bloating. Aim to drink at least 8 glasses of water a day to keep your digestive system running smoothly.

2. Eat Mindfully

Do you often find yourself eating on the go or while distracted? Take the time to sit down, chew your food thoroughly, and savor each bite. This help prevent bloating, improve your digestion, and help you to know when you are truly full! 

3. Avoid Trigger Foods

Some foods are notorious for causing belly bloat. Common culprits include beans, lentils, broccoli, cabbage, onions, and carbonated drinks. Pay attention to how your body reacts to different foods and try to avoid those that cause bloating.

4. Get Moving

Exercise is not only great for your overall health, but it can also help reduce belly bloat. Physical activity stimulates the muscles in your digestive tract, helping to move food through your system more efficiently. Aim to MOVE your body for at least 10 – 30 minutes a day!

5. Try Probiotics

Probiotics are beneficial bacteria that can help improve your gut health. They can help regulate digestion and reduce bloating. These include fermented foods like kombucha, yogurt, kefir, sauerkraut, kimchi, beets, and pickles.

6. Reduce Stress

Stress can wreak havoc on your digestive system, leading to bloating and other digestive issues. Find healthy ways to manage stress, such as yoga, meditation, deep breathing exercises, or using Miss Congeniality;)
