De-Bloat your life !
Ever go to bed feeling good about your body only to wake up and feel like you gained weight overnight ? I have days like that too but I am going to give you some tips that can help de-bloat you and make you wake up feeling like your ready to conquer the day !
-Eat your daily fiber !!!
Fiber found in fruits, veggies, and whole grains will help with the digestive processes and reduce bloat. These foods are essential to your daily caloric values and a well balanced diet !!!
It may seem counter productive but I promise you that if you start to drink more water you will feel less bloated. NOT drinking water causes you to retain that water along with sodium causing water retention! if you’re body feels dehydrated it will retain water, so you wake up feeling bloated. Make sure to get 8-10 glasses to feel fully hydrated.
-Get your body moving !!
Move your body and exercise !! The sweat helps to release toxins from your body and it will help with weight gain by reducing your caloric intake !!
-Lower your sodium intake !
Salt will make you retain water, and is the number one culprit when it comes to bloating in general. Sodium is sneaky so make sure your checking out all those condiments and dreaded "box diety meals" which will really cause bloating !
-Avoid late night snacks!!
I say this not because of calorie content but because YOUR BORED Eat a balanced dinner to combat those late night cravings.
A happy and positive mindset can work absolute wonders, giving you motivation and energy to achieve your goals and go to bed happy. Stress and cortisol will cause lower belly bloat and may increase fat retention in that area !! Try to be stress free and mediate daily !
-No more soda !!!!
The carbonation and sugar make more than the beverage bubble up, cut out the soda to cut out the belly bloat. Plus its loaded with TONS of extra calories that will increase caloric intake without even thinking about it !!
Try some of these tips and incorporate them into your lifestyle !!!
