We’ve all had those days when we just can’t seem to banish the bloat in our stomach areas…here are a few culprits that may be causing your bloated belly…follow these tips and see how you feel. Many of my clients swear they instantly feel better within a few days after tweaking a few of their daily rituals.
Forgo the Gum
When we chew gum, we swallow air, which can be trapped in our GI tracts and result in an uncomfortable bloated belly.
Ditch the Salt Shaker
High sodium foods such as processed, packaged goods, condiments and many restaurant meals can leave you bloated and uncomfortable, especially if they ‘slip’ MSG in the ingredient list.
We all know broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage are sure gas creators, therefore steer clear of these gas guzzlers and your intestinal tract will thank you.
Reach for Potassium
Foods rich in potassium such as strawberries and bananas counterbalance the sodium in your system and will leave you feeling less bloated and ‘puffy’.
