We all try our best to avoid bloating but with regular diet or stress, it always seems to creep up on us. Not only do we feel uncomfortable internally, but it makes us self conscious of the way others see us.
Honestly, it’s completely out of control. The constant hard and bloated stomach and the discomfort of bubbling digestive gases is so annoying and inconvenient. And it is completely fixable with food. With your diet you can tell your body to detoxify itself and release the inflammatory agents that are causing not only belly bloat, but overall water retention as well.
Instead of letting it ruin your fun, here is a list of 7 tricks that can debloat in a flash and restore your peace and confidence.
Ginger is almost a ‘cure-all’ spice and here is no exception. Ginger has been hailed for thousands of years as a great aid to the health of the entire digestive system. It possesses nutrients that help the intestines to absorb more from food, and most importantly reduce waste in the body. Ginger is also fantastic for, inflammation, something that can occurs in the intestines when unhealthy foods are put into the body regularly. By aiding in the intestines efficiency in extracting nutrients and eliminating waste, the body can debloat and shed extra baggage easily.
DIY Detox Waters
This is a great get-two-birds-with-one-stone type of deal. Not only do you hydrate with water, but you get to infuse some of the nutrients from fruit or veggies in it also. Some people argue about the taste bring strange, but there are some good recipes out there!
You can find three of them here.
|Grapefruit Cucumber||Cucumber Strawberry||Citrus Aloe|
|Grapefruit Cucumber Ginger Mint Honey||Cucumber Strawberries Apple Raspberries Mint||Oranges Lemon Juice Aloe Vera Juice/Gel Mint Leaves|
The best thing about these is you can have them in a pitcher in your fridge for only at home, or you can take them to work in portable bottles. Also, it’s a little more fun for some people instead of always drinking water.
Water will hydrate the body and help send the body a message that it can let go of some of the bloating from water weight. Hydrating with WATER specifically is probably the most important portion of this because carbonated drinks especially are known to mess with the intestines and interfere with good natural digestion bacteria. Also water consistently counteracts bloating from high amounts of salt from foods, and very high carb intake.
Regulate the Fiber
Fiber is the lifeblood of the digestive system! Figuratively of course. It is powerful, but it should be understood and used comprehensively. Sometimes when you crash-course fiber when starting a new rigorous diet or lifestyle change, it can accidently bloat its user unsuspectedly. Fibrous foods are great for you, but sometimes in overly high, very high, concentrations they can in fact lead to a little bloating if ambushed all at once. Over time this dissipates however so don’t lower your fiber intake forever, just take it nice and slow. *cue R&B music*

Also it can debloat you through pulling excess water out of your body everywhere, not just your stomach. This makes it perfect for bikini beach dates, or sleek slink evening wear. *cue wink*. When doing this, a great cherry on top is dropping essential oils in the water; the aromatherapy will also work you relax the body throughout, enhancing the effectiveness of the entire process.
