THE BLOAT


 

 There is nothing sexy about a little bloated tummy, or your skinny jeans not covering your pooch.

That’s why I wanted to talk about it. How to avoid it and what to do when it creeps in.

 

Why we get bloated

 

Well, if it’s that time of the month (PMS time), then let it go, let It go! Somethings are out of our control.

But some bloating is absolutely caused by choices we make, like the food we’re eating or the amount of physical activity we’re giving our bodies.

 

Soda and carbonated drinks, eating foods rich in salts and fats, naturally gassy food and even just eating too fast can all leave us with that dreaded belly bloat.

 

Fat, salt, dairy, and artificial sugars all cause us to look like little food baby mommies.
