5. Eat slower
You may not think this matters, but when you eat food at a fast pace this can cause air to be trapped in your system, resulting in bloating.
To reduce this risk, chew your food slowly and take your time to finish your meals. This is also a great way to reduce the risk of overeating.
6. Stop chewing gum
Although gum is a great way to keep your breath minty fresh, it is also sadly a great way for you to swallow even more air.
Many gums also contain sugar alcohol which is also a contributor to bloating, so cut gum out for the day and see if it reduces your inflammation.
7. Stay away from fizzy drinks
Fizzy drinks are a big cause of bloating as they can cause gas to get trapped in your body. To prevent this, stick to water for the day.
I feel like I’m constantly telling people to drink more water, but that’s only because it really is essential, not just for weight loss, but for general bodily function.
Water can also help to reduce bloating though as it flushes out toxins, so increase your intake of water for the day and watch that puffy stomach shrink.
8. Eat more fibre
Increasing your intake of fibre could help to banish bloating as fibre reduces inflammation because it helps your digestive system to run smoothly. If your digestive system is functioning to its full potential then you are less likely to experience bloating or constipation
Remember to avoid certain fibre-rich foods such as beans and cruciferous vegetables though as these could actually make your bloating worse!
