How To Get Rid Of Bloated Stomach

There is nothing attractive about a bloated belly that resembles a huge balloon that is about to explode, not to mention all the gases and discomfort. Bloating is common after heavy meals, but for some people it is a normal part of their everyday life.
What causes your belly to bloat?
Insufficient water intake
 Dehydration is a major cause of numerous health problems. Excessive consumption of coffee and alcohol only contributes to the problem. When was the last time you had 6-8 glasses of water during the day?
When the body lacks water, it uses the liquids from its tissues, which means that bloating may appear as a result of fluid retention. So, try to drink more water.
Constipation
 Constipation is a rather unpleasant issue, and it indicates that you need more fiber-rich foods. The gasses that remain trapped behind the feces will not stand still for a long time, you know.
 
Eat your fiber gradually, otherwise you will only make the problem even worse. Buy whole grain bread, and stay away from white bread. Indulge in smoothies and berries. Sounds delicious, right?
Chronic stress
 Believe it or not, stress may cause bloating. When you are under stress, your digestive system fails to perform its function properly. Your bloating may be caused by constipation and stomach ache. So, try to free yourself from the negative emotions, and you will solve your problem for good.
Eating too fast
 Partially chewed food is slowly digested, and you get bloated. Simple as that. So, take small bites, and chew them well.
Carbohydrates
 Excessive consumption of carbs may contribute to your bloated belly. Consider eating low-carb foods, and cut off your sugar intake and alcohol. Eat more fresh fruits and veggies.
