Ever wonder why certain foods or too much of a good thing can cause excessive bloating and the dreaded flabby belly syndrome! This is not science but what I do to feel whole again.
Eat whole fresh foods. Remember, purity is the key here:
- Steamed veggies
They are good over raw because they are easy in the digestive system while offering all the benefits. Just remember to lightly steam so they are more on the raw side than cooked.
- Fresh fruits: I made a delicious fruit salad with 1 plum, 1 apple, 6 large strawberries and half a papaya
- Lots of water: hot or room temperature. You can also have some herbal tea for flavor.
- Try to stay away from salt for a little while because it will retain water. Finally, when you feel unbloated, try to have sea salt which is less processed.
