7 Tips To DeBloat Your Belly Tonight
1) Slow Down
Eating too quickly can cause air to be trapped in your
system, so chew slowly to minimize bloating caused from getting too much air
trapped in your system.
2) Drink More Water
Good old H2O helps flush out toxins and extra salt (which
can be responsible for that puffy feeling) from your system, so remind yourself
to drink more water throughout the day. Keeping a water bottle with you at all
times is a great way to ensure you're always filling up.
3) Check Portions
The reason you're feeling full and bloated could be your
portion sizes. If you find that you're constantly feeling stuffed after a meal, this may be the reason for the bloat too! If portion control is a factor for you, try a program like the FIX.
4) Skip Happy Hour
Whether it's a glass of wine with dinner or a cocktail at
happy hour, that drink can make you feel bloated for many reasons. Not only can
the alcohol cause digestion issues, but all that sugar in your fruity drink can
make you feel sluggish as well. Not only that, those drinks can lead to
deep-fried decisions when dinnertime rolls around. Keep temptations away by
skipping out on happy hour or sticking to noncarbonated water with lemon.
5) Skip the Dessert
Fatty, sugary foods can cause bloating, as can foods high in
artificial sweeteners. Skip the carb-heavy, sugary desserts, and go for fresh
fruit, which is high in fiber and water, to help you debloat.
6) Drink a Debloating Tea
Spices like cinnamon and ginger help clear out your system,
so have a mug of debloating tea before you
go to bed. Mint tea can also help soothe your stomach, so opt for that if you
need a refreshing end to your dinner.
7) Get to Sleep on Time
Sleep helps regulate your metabolism, so lack of sleep can
make you feel sluggish in more ways than one. Keep your body working at its
best by ensuring you get seven to nine hours of sleep at night.
