Belly bloat is the worst. It's particularly annoying if you watch what you eat and exercise. Luckily, it can be temporary and you can get rid of it.
Here are some tips we follow:
Drink plenty of water – try drinking 1.5 liters per day throughout the day to help flush out the sodium
Stay away from salty foods – that are high in salt and give your body a chance to let go of all of that excess water
Drink Peppermint tea (or Ginger) – will help ease the feeling of fullness around your middle alleviating the bloat
Choose your fruits and veggies wisely – foods like asparagus are natural diuretic that counteract all the salt you may have consumed. Eat more wisely throughout day by choosing greens and lean protein
