Bloat – AWAY!!

Below are few things that will help you get rid of the balloon in your stomach aka bloating.

  1. Drink plenty of water because it flushes out the excess sodium and also helps keep you regular.  Fruits and veggies that have high water content can also do the same as water so eat lots of watermelon, cucumber, pineapples and tomatoes.
  2. Yogurt has probiotics or good bacteria which helps get rid of gas and again helps keep you regular (constipation comes with its BFF bloating).
  3. Fiber can also get rid of bloating so try eating fruits and veggies with high fiber content like strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, apples, pears and veggies like peas and artichokes.
  4. Bananas, avocados, orange juice, quinoa and pistachios are high in potassium which regulates sodium level thus keeping your belly flat.
  5. Pineapple (again), grapefruit and papaya (I hate papayas so I’ll be eating the other two) have digestive enzymes that break down protein in our system which makes digestion easier.
  6. Salmon has omega-3 fatty acids with reduces inflammation in the body and can help reduce bloating associated with GI distress.
