Have you ever tried to fit into those skinny jeans during that time near your periods or after eating baked beans? Stomach bloating must have prevented you from being able to zip your jeans. Stomach bloating is a common problem especially in menstruating women. There are many ways you can get rid of stomach bloating.
1. If you feel bloated, try and massage your abdomen in the direction of your GI tract. Eat lots of yogurt too. Probiotics found in yogurt can keep you regular and bloat free.
2. Watch what you eat. Soda, beans and other gas forming vegetables can make you bloated. Eat potassium rich foods because they help regulate the fluid balance in your body and prevent bloating. Make sure you consult your doctor before you eat high potassium foods especially if you have kidney and heart disease.
Other habits such as chewing gum and drinking through a straw can make you swallow excess air which can make you bloated.
3. Being active can enable you to get rid off excess bloating. Walk everyday for at least 15 to 20 minutes a day to keep food moving through the digestive tract
