5 Tips To Beat The Bloat! | Health
Bloating can be a distressing condition. Sick of getting bloated every day?
According to Medicine Today ("a monthly, independent, peer-reviewed scientific journal of clinical medicine written and refereed by doctors for Australian general practitioners, specialists and other health professionals."), bloating should be treated according to individual needs and it typically begins with changes in the foods we eat.
With that said, here’s how to reduce that annoying bloat; and get to look trim and tight in the process.
1. Drink water with apple cider vinegar and lemon
Add 1-2 tablespoons of Apple cider vinegar into a big glass of water with a fresh lemon squeezed in.
2. Put the sugar and/or caffeine loaded drinks down!
Avoid sugary and caffeinated drinks, and that goes for coffee, too. These can sit heavy and the sugary drinks can cause you to hold fluid. Try swapping for some green tea instead!
- - has resveratrol, a super antioxidant popular for its anti-ageing properties.

- - It's also a fat burner because it helps promote thermogenesis.
- - It helps stimulate your metabolism and burn calories through increased energy expenditure.
- - And what's more, our Green Tea X50 is naturally sweetened.
3. Reduce gluten and dairy in your diet
Gluten and dairy are the two biggest culprits for bloating. Swap pasta for brown rice pasta, milk for unsweetened almond milk.
