Bloating is an unfortunate health situation we cannot avoid, it just happens. It also comes at the most inconvenient times. Thus, to avoid embarrassment, here’s five effortless ways to get rid of bloating.

Wake up on the right side:

A glass of warm water with lemon in the morning ignites your digestive system and helps start the day on the right note. Go the extra mile by sprinkling some cinnamon or cayenne pepper for extra anti-inflammatory power.

Stick to water:

No matter what you do, stick to water throughout the day. Water inhibits usual causes of bloating like constipation and dehydration and doesn’t have any stomach-expanding ingredients like sweeteners and carbonation that are available in other drinks like soda.

No diary:

Lactose sensitivity is very important, no matter how mild. Many people see negative side effects after having milk, cheese or yogurt. You don’t need to cut them out entirely but don’t do dairy before major events, since you never really know how your body is going to react.

Avoid salt play

Steer clear of salt:

You may have heard this before and it’s true.  Salt makes the body retain water, instead stick to pepper when you want to feel slimmer.

Chew slower play
