I am sure most of us are not strangers to bloating due to overeating post festive celebration. Here are some useful tips to reduce your bloating. Staying hydrated and drinking enough water Do you notice yourself bloating after eating sodium-rich food even when you do not overeat? The reason is because our kidneys retain water due to the excess of sodium in our diet, making us feel bloated everywhere. Hence, drinking more water will help flush out some of that sodium and water, which will make it feel less distended. Avoid salty foods Besides keeping ourselves hydrated, we should also avoid having salty foods. We recommend preparing food at home instead of dining out, to control the amount of salt used to cook our meals. Light exercises A 15-minute brisk walk and staying active increase the motility of our colon, which reduces the amount of time Continue Reading
