How To feel Less Bloated
Morning: Drink Hot Water and Lemon

Morning: Go Dairy-Free

Mid-morning: Have a Vegan Smoothie
This Avocado Aloe Spinach Smoothie contains aloe vera juice, coconut water and toxin-flushing lemon juice to help banish bloat by breaking down protein and easing digestion.
All Day: Slow Down
Eating too quickly can cause air to be trapped in your system, so chew slowly to minimise bloating caused from getting too much air trapped in your system.
All Day: Don't Chew Gum
It's a secret of debloating brides — stop the gum chewing to feel less puffy. And it's not only because chewing gum causes you to swallow more air: many gums contain sugar alcohol, which also can make you feel bloated.
All Day: Drink More Water
Good old H2O helps flush out toxins and extra salt (which can be responsible for that puffy feeling) from your system, so remind yourself to drink more water throughout the day. Keeping a water bottle with you at all times is a great way to ensure you're always filling up.
Afternoon: Eat Quinoa
Quinoa's many nutrients include fibre and potassium, both of which are important if you'd like to feel less bloated. This superfood salad combines cabbage, quinoa, lemon for a delicious and filling lunch and happy digestion.
All Day: Check Portions
The reason you could be feeling full and bloated could be your portion sizes. If you find that you're constantly feeling stuffed after a meal, download and print our visual guide to portions that just uses your hands, here.
Afternoon: Have a Fibre-Rich Snack
Many women don't get enough fibre, which is the key to feeling full, energised, and bloat-free. You should aim to get 25 to 30 grams of fibre a day: get to the goal by snacking on fibre-rich foods like avocado, raspberries, chia seeds, and pears. Learn more aboutwhich foods are high in fibre here (remember to skip ones like beans and cruciferous vegetables that may cause stomach discomfort).
Dinner: Go for Asparagus
Asparagus encourages digestive health by stimulating the growth of good bacteria in your body. Eat a dinner that's heavy on the veggie and add a lean protein like chicken or fish for further debloating properties. This healthy asparagus recipe would go perfectly with your belly-slimming dinner.
Evening: Drink a Debloating Tea
Spices like cinnamon and ginger help clear out your system, so have a mug of debloating tea — like a ginger lemongrass tea — before you go to bed. Mint tea can also help soothe your stomach, so opt for that if you need a refreshing end to your dinner.
Night: Get to Sleep on Time
Sleep helps regulate your metabolism, so lack of sleep can make you feel sluggish in more ways than one. Keep your body working at its best by ensuring you get seven to nine hours of sleep at night.
