Chew To Avoid Bloating
I used to suffer from excess bloating last year, and it was horrendous. After practically every meal, my stomach would bulge and I’d feel as heavy as a very heavy thing for at least an hour after swallowing my last bit of food.
During my mission to get a flat stomach, I was told that failing to chew food properly is what causes excess bloating. Digestion, after all, starts in the mouth. And if you don’t chew your food properly, you could easily end up with food that is poorly-digested. This, in turn, can cause bloating.
From now on, chew everything until it’s like minced meat in your mouth. Only then should you swallow.
Swap Coffee And Alcohol For Water
I know, I know. Swapping your vices for water of all things is boring. But it’s gotta be done.
Both caffeine and alcohol are diuretics, which means they cause your body to store more fluids in your abdomen in a bid to keep you hydrated. Over time, this creates the so-called “beer belly.”
Water keeps you properly hydrated without the need for fluid retention in your gut.
Avoid Table Salt
Many of us have table salt in our rooms, and it’s often a key part of our diet. Salt gives food flavour, and if you’re like I was last year, you probably can’t help being overly generous with it. After all, salt isn’t as bad as a sugar, right?
If you liberally sprinkle salt over your meals, it could be the number one reason for your swollen tummy. From now on, consider swapping salt for healthier alternatives, such as fresh tomato salsa, or even pepper. You could also get away with natural sea salt, but you should also avoid soy sauce.
Eat More Probiotics
Probiotics are known as the good guys in the world of bacteria. Yes, they’re a form of bacteria, but they enhance your digestive system when it comes to breaking down your food. They can help to ward of gastrointestinal issues associated with belly fat.
