Let’s face it. We all get bloated. And although no one should feel ashamed of sporting a tummy when they are having a bloated day, being bloated, in general, totally sucks. It’s uncomfortable, distracting and a whole host of other words that describe yucky feels.
Thankfully, there are plethora things a person can do to help their body quickly get rid of unwanted bloat.
Have a drink with one of the following things
First, consider making a beverage that’s full of spices that promote the de-bloating process the morning before you go on cam. (These remedies also could help in a pinch when you’re on cam or in-between takes.)
Spices such as cayenne, turmeric and black pepper are ideal. Here’s why:
Cayenne: Cayenne pepper can help stimulate digestion, ease gas and relieve pressure and cramping, reported Byrdie. Apparently, ingesting a teaspoon of the spice in a drink — such as plain water — can quickly relieve bloating symptoms.
Turmeric: This spice is known for its ability to detoxify. “Turmeric is highly anti-inflammatory and can help mediate the immune system,” Caitlin Sullivan, co-founder of Honey Hi, told Byrdie. Another suggestion is adding a teaspoon of it to water, tea, juice or a smoothie.
Ginger: Ginger can help de-bloat your gut. Consider combining it with turmeric and lemon in a smoothie.
Next, try one of my favorite health tonics and de-bloating remedies: apple cider vinegar.
Apple cider vinegar helps increase stomach acid, which improves digestion, and “aids your body’s absorption of key nutrients from food,” reported Byrdie.
“This supertonic balances healthy bacteria in the gut, promoting better digestion, balancing pH levels in the body, and killing any viruses and unwanted bacteria,” Nicole Granato, a women’s health specialist, added (per Byrdie).
To enjoy the benefits of apple cider vinegar, simply add a teaspoon to eight ounces of water. Byrdie suggested added some cinnamon or Stevia for taste. I prefer a bit of lemon juice.
💥 BLOATING 💥 . Follow @yavar_power for daily muscle building, fat losing and nutrition tips 💯🍉🍕 . - - . . 🍦I was chatting to one of my online coaching clients the other day about her feeling bloated and why this may be. Now bloating is normally a temporary thing that will go away. It certainly doesn’t mean you’re getting fat 🙄 There are many reasons for feeling bloated; food related and non-food related. In this post I’m going to look at certain foods that MIGHT (you see that? Might!) make you feel bloated . . 🍪It’s quite common to see foods, such as, dairy, refined sugars and refined grains (like gluten) be top of the list. Artificial sweeteners can also have a bloating effect. The reason why I put a picture of a protein bar is because, despite being considered a ‘healthy’ snack, these are often full of sweeteners, sugar alcohols and poor quality protein (usually soy) . . 🥦Interesting is that some vegetables high in sulfur, like broccoli, cabbage and cauliflower can cause bloating and gas in some people. Carbonated drinks sounds obvious too, especially when combined with artificial sweeteners. Undigested protein (or poor quality protein) can also play havoc in the gut, despite having loads of benefits. Eat slower! . . 🤔So how can you tell what is causing you to bloat? It’s difficult, I get it. Be aware of what you’re eating and write down how you feel after each meal. If there’s a particular meal that caused an issue, look at the individual components of said meal. Next time remove 1 or 2 and see how you feel. Basically, it’s a lot of trial and error and being in tune with your body 👍 . . ❓Any questions please comment below and feel free to share this information 🍔 . . - 📷 @sam_xceedfit . #bloated #onlinetrainerdubai #onlinecoach
Think before you eat
If you have a tendency to eat while binging Netflix, reading news on your phone, tweeting about said news, etc., you may experience poor digestion, which could lead to bloating.
Next time you’re eating before going on cam, try to slowly enjoy the food you prepared. Chew the food slowly, eat with intention and try to eat without distractions.
Also, fermented food, such as sauerkraut or kimchi, can keep bloating under control. Zesty!
“Fermentation allows us to preserve foods safely and effectively, oftentimes making those foods exponentially more nutritious than in their freshest state,” Sullivan added.
“You can add sauerkraut or kimchi to a meal to easily add a lot more vegetables and a wide variety of nutrients. The relationship between your brain and your gut is very real and the naturally occurring probiotics in fermented foods are an easy way to add probiotics to your diet without expensive supplementation.”
If you haven’t added exercise to your daily pre-cam routine, consider it! According to a study in the American Journal of Gastroenterology, exercise can actually help ease gas retention.
Thankfully, it’s pretty easy to eat, drink and move your way to a less bloated body. Interested in other ways that promote less bloat? Visit the original Byrdie article for more information.

If you are looking for a natural weight loss solution. 🍓 Visit link on my bio @howto.countcalories . . . @syattfitness – 💥HOW TO STOP BLOATING💥 – 🐿I'm certainly not the greatest wizard to ever live but I do like to think I've learned, at least, a thing or two in my time as a coach. And one of those things is how to reduce (or stop) bloating. – 🌮Worth noting, there are mannnyyyyyyyyyyyy possible reasons for why you may be getting bloated. And it's impossible for me to tell you what, exactly, is causing it. And for that reason, if you find yourself chronically bloated, you 100% should speak to your doctor (and I encourage you to ask them about IBS and to check for any food intolerances because those are common culprits). – 🍪Anyhoodle, visit to Madam Pomfrey aside, first thing I'd say is quit eating raw veggies and start cooking them. Along those lines, it's smart to reduce (or eliminate) cruciferous veggies because, if you're prone to bloating, they can wreak havoc on your stomach. If you don't know what "cruciferous vegetables" are, you can type those 2 words right into the Google machine and it will tell you, literally, everything you could ever want to know. – 🏓 Sipping hot water and/or tea is another of my favorite charms that works *really* well. I'm not 100% sure why but, if I had to guess, it makes it easier for the food to be broken down and digested without getting "stuck" and sitting there. – 🥁As for the rest, eating smaller/more frequent meals can help with digestion. Probiotics & digestive enzymes get solid reviews but don't work for everyone or everything. Sugar alcohols affect everyone differently but, for what it's worth, I've seen them cause a metric eff ton of bloating in *a lot* of people so just be aware. And when in doubt, going on a light walk or bike or doing any low intensity cardio can work wonders in reducing the bloat. – #bloatedbelly #bloated #bloating #pms #tea #water #hottea #hotwater #probiotics #digestion #enzymes #walk #walking #cardio #liss #steadystate #bodybuilding #bodybuildingcom #healthy #healthylifestyle #healthyliving #healthynutrition #fitnesstips #alwaysoptimal
