Don’t sweat, I’ve got five easy ways to get rid of belly bloat fast. Let’s check them out.
#1: Get away from salt
So much of the time, bloating really comes down to water retention. Does that mean you should scale back on how much water you’re drinking? Absolutely not!! In fact, too little water can freak your body out, making it hold onto water instead of processing it like it should. Drink up!
So what makes your body retain water? Too much sodium is usually the culprit. This doesn’t just mean skipping the table salt. A ton of packaged foods contain a ton of sodium. Watch out!
Scaling back your sodium intake is one of the best ways to get rid of belly bloat fast.
#2: Get more fiber
Another bloat culprit? Constipation.
Usually, this happens from a mix of not eating enough fiber, not drinking enough water, and not getting enough physical activity. If you’ve been feeling a little backed up, work some high-fiber foods into your meal plan. Those include:
#3: Get your sweat on
Want to get rid of belly bloat fast? Blast through your workout. Exercise stimulates your digestion, which can help you slim down that belly.
If I’m really trying to beat bloat, I’ll usually do a workout that targets my core and involves some twisting. Getting that area moving physically helps to get your digestion moving so you can get your flattest stomach possible — plus more toned abs!
#4: Eat slower and more mindfully
I know how easy it is to plop down in front of the TV at dinnertime or to knock out some work while you eat lunch. But scarfing down a meal means two things. First, you’ll probably eat more than you need. Second, you’re probably not chewing enough and you’re probably swallowing more air than you need.
Slow it down. Chew each bite and enjoy it! As you’re working toward your slimmest stomach, eating with intention can go a long way.
#5: Down a shot
My last tip to get rid of belly bloat fast isn’t the tastiest, but give it a shot and I bet you’ll agree the results are worth it. In the morning, mix the juice from half a lemon with one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar and a pinch of cayenne. You can dilute it with water if the taste is too intense.
This drink helps to stimulate your digestion so you can enjoy your flattest stomach. Make it a part of your morning routine and watch that bloat melt away.
