Why am I sooooOOooo bloated all the time?! I know I’m not the only one that has asked this questioned on too many times to count. The truth of the matter is, bloating can be caused by many different factors. From it simply being that time of the month, to eating too much or eating foods that may cause excessive gas. But don’t you worry your pretty little head. We’re here to help. I’m going to let you in on a secret…. It’s kind of our specialty.

 First things first, what exactly is belly bloating?  According to Health Line, “Abdominal bloating occurs when the gastrointestinal (GI) tract is filled with liquid, air or gas.”  When it comes to bloating, most people described bloating as feeling full, tight, or swollen in the abdomen. Which can result in experiencing discomfort and pain. Ouch!

Now, let’s tackle what may be causing the bloating in the first place.

  

Unhealthy Tings and Treats

I know you probably don’t want to hear this, but all those delicious snacks you like to chow down on could be causing some serious belly bloating. Unnatural fatty and processed foods often take your body a lot longer to digest. Its best to eat foods that are natural and high in protein. Such as nuts, avocado, fruits and veggies. I’m not saying you can’t indulge in some chocolate cake every now and then but avoiding processed foods will not only help with keeping your health in check but will also make you feel better. But most importantly, it’ll help to cut down on the belly bloating.

Certain Veggies

I know… I know… I just said to eat more veggies lol but you need to know that certain vegetables can actually cause bloating. Certain veggies naturally have more sugars and starches in them which may cause extra gas to build up in the digestive tract. You don’t have to avoid them all together, but you should take it a bit easy. Ladies this also includes beans or legumes. Just to name a few. 

  • Cabbage
  • Cauliflower
  • Broccoli
  • Brussel Sprouts
  • Beans
  • Peas
  • Lentils

 

That Time of the Month

OMG!!!! “Period bloating”….. The worst kind of bloating if you ask me… Interesting fact. Did you know that bloating before and during your period is the result from changes in levels of the sex hormones progesterone and estrogen? Gotta love Mother Nature lol But don’t worry, this is normal.

Here are some ways we suggest reducing period bloating:

  1. Follow a low-sodium diet, including fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean protein.
  2. Drink LOTS of water.
  3. Try skipping caffeine and alcohol before your cycle is due to start.
  4. Limit the amount of processed foods you intake.
  5. Exercise regularly.
  6. Double up on your Celebrity Detox Tea. Drink the a.m and p.m blend every day for a least a week before Aunt Flow stops by for a visit.

 

Portion Size


Lastly, if you suffer from belly bloating a lot, you may want to consider cutting your portions sizes during mealtime. It may be a good idea for you to eat smaller meals throughout the day.  SooooOoo…. Instead of eating 3 large meals, cut your meals in half and eat 5-6 meals a day. This may sound like a lot, but trust me, this could be a major factor to your bloating. Plus eating smaller portions helps your body digest faster and better.

 

Belly bloating will more than likely happen at some point in time, but it doesn’t mean you have to suffer through it. Take these tips and use them to avoid the BLOAT. Now you know exactly what to do whenever it does sneak up on ya!
