After an unbelievable Christmas full of fun and good times I have to admit I’m feel a little be bloated and sluggish this week.
While I don’t feel one bit guilty any of it, I feel it’s time to start getting things back on track.
If you’re feeling similar here are my top 7 tips for reducing bloating.
Check your portion sizes/ Take your time when eating
Our portions sizes may of been a little bigger over the last few weeks so reducing your portion sizes would be the first thing to look at.
Check out Precision Nutrition's "Ultimate Portion Control Guide" below. This image shows the different portion sizes between men(two hands) and women(one hand).
Replace fizzy drinks with peppermint or green tea.
Both peppermint and green tea are great for helping settle down bloating.
Reduce your alcohol intake/take a break for a few days.
With New Year's just around the corner a few days off the booze will help reduce bloating. It will also give your liver time to repair!!
Replace the sugar snacks and treats
Replacement snacks like nut, fruit or even our mint choc protein bar below.
Increase your water intake
This will help flush out the toxins in your body and ensure you are properly hydrated.
