6 Surprising Causes of Bloating and the Drink Recipe You Need to Help Flatten Your Belly
Written by: Lindsay Sibson
You know what feeling I just can’t get enough of?
When you wake up “empty,” your stomach is relatively flat and you think to yourself “WOW, today is a neeeeeew day!”
Then the inevitable happens.
And ya bloat. Ugh.
What Causes Bloating?
|Not Drinking Enough Water
- When your body detects that you aren’t drinking enough water, it will do its best to retain, which will make you look and feel bloated.
|Eating Too Much Salt
- When you consume too much salt, it causes your body to cling to water, which leads you to feeling bloated.
- If you aren’t passing your bowels at least once a day, it can lead to a buildup of waste in your digestive tract.
|Eating TOO Much
- Watch your portions. Pay attention while you are eating. Eat slowly, chew your food and eat until you are satisfied (not until you are full).
- If you experience indigestion, excessive gas and bloating frequently, it would be wise to pay attention to what foods are causing these symptoms. The easiest way to discover if you have food sensitivities or intolerances is to do an elimination diet.
- Alcohol is dehydrating and can wreak havoc on your digestive system, which can lead to indigestion and bloating.
