1. Eat Little, Eat Often
One of the keys to reducing stomach bloating is to keep your meals light yet frequent. Even the slimmest girl will end up with a bit of a belly after scoffing a huge meal. Instead, try eating smaller meals throughout the day. This will reduce the burden on your digestive system and ensure that your stomach looks sexy in that skin-tight dress. A good routine is preparing small portioned main meals (i.e. breakfast, lunch and dinner) and filling the gaps with healthy snacks such as fruit, nuts and wholegrain crackers.
2. Balance The Bacteria
Culprit number two when it comes to bloating? An imbalance of good and bad bacteria in your gut which can hinder digestion and leave you feeling puffy. One of the best ways to get back in balance is to include a healthy probiotic yogurt or dairy drink into your diet.
3. Don’t Overdo The Carbs
While we’re not going to say carbs are absolutely forbidden, if you’re after a flat stomach it does pay to watch your intake of refined products. Instead, switch to low GI, slower releasing carbs such grainy breads, whole-wheat pasta and rolled oats. Replacing some of your carbs with monounsaturated fats will also help battle the bloat (e.g. nuts and tahini rather than crisps and jam).
