This belly fat makes your life tough? Do not worry; you are certainly not the only one who suffers from bloating. And I suffered so much, believe me.
Ladies, let us think of all those times when you gave up a close-fitting dress, or a tight-fitting top, that embarrassment in a swimsuit. And you gentlemen, how many times have you swapped a classy shirt for a loose T-shirt?
How many times have you felt embarrassed about your belly protruding? Now, it is time to fight against this bloat. And I bring you heavy artillery.
Firstly, you have to learn to define your opponent. What is this bloating and what can cause it?
It’s quite simple, bloating means well-filled stomach. It is true, it is a distension of the stomach by different solids or liquids as a result of a good meal fat or rich in sugars. It may also be due to an exaggerated ingestion of gas.
To avoid bloating:
For the right strategy of attack, we will start, first of all, with food missteps to avoid bloating. To achieve this:
1. Avoid dairy products and dairy products:
Do not eat more than you need. If dairy products, baked or raw milk cheeses are your sweet catch; be aware that these products, especially for adults are really difficult to digest and take time to be treated.
They may ferment in your stomach and chub. In fact, a gas flow blocked in your digestive system creates a bloating.
2. Avoid soft drinks:
It is not rocket science. The more you consume this kind of drinks, the more you clog your digestive tract of gas. You should not be surprised to have a bloated belly. So escape them as much as you can.
3. Limit your fructose consumption:
This sacred fructose is a sugar that promotes the production of hydrogen gas. Do not consume more than enough. Fructose is in honey, jam, chocolate bars and in fruits. But do not forget that fruits are also a good dose of vitamins.
So the secret is to find the right combination and the right balance between the two: bloating and nutrition.
4. Stop the chewing gum:
It makes the digestive system operate as “empty”. In fact, the air accumulates in the digestive tract, which causes this bloating. In addition, it contains sweetener which is not digested but ferments in your digestive system.
So for your breath, opt for mints! The sweetener also must be to avoid. It is found in all products without added sugars and sweets without sugar.
To remedy the bloating:
Now that your diet is in line with your goal, your defence is strong enough. You are ready to fight back. Here are the reflexes and good habits to adopt with a list of natural remedies to get rid of your bloating:
1. Fennel: King of anti-gas remedies and bloating.
Those are the rules: chew a pinch of fennel seeds then chew a little more. After 2-5 minutes, you win. You’ll be able to quickly say goodbye to gas.
In addition, if you like black liquorice, it has about the same taste. It is not a torture. You can also drink herbal tea after infusing it for 3 minutes.
2. Coal: Enemy sworn bloat.
Vegetable coal or activated carbon has the power to absorb 100 times its gas volume. So, it’s easy to fight against bloating and find that flat stomach that you miss so much.
3. The mint:
Mint is also one of the most popular home remedies against bloating. A good glass of mint tea after your meal allows you to digest better. This is why the Maghreb communities perpetuate this tradition by taking it with the fattiest meals. You can also add a little chamomile.
Caraway as Fennel is quite effective. Just chew a pinch of caraway seed without anything more.
Use a tablespoon of turmeric with a little boiling water. Let this small mixture steep for 2 minutes, and enjoy your drink. It’s also a magic cure for stomach ache.
Just pour boiling water on 3 nail heads for infusion. Your miracle drink will be ready in three minutes. The taste is not good but it calms.
7. The ginger:
Whether infusion, piece or oil, it is just as effective. You can drink a cup of ginger tea or chew a piece of it. You can also add 5 drops of ginger essential oil to 2-3 tablespoons of a carrier oil and rub in your stomach. A good little massage is good for time to time.
8. Baking soda and lemon:
I propose you a little recipe quite acid but still quite famous for its achievements in the maintenance of your physical health. These two allies are happy in beauty, hygiene, and health. Just squeeze a lemon, add a little baking soda to lemon juice. And continue to add until it does not sparkle anymore.
Then you add a cup of water and dissolve all the baking soda. Then drink this drink slowly. The flat belly has magically appeared.
9. The essential oils: And the list goes on. Several essential oils can be used against bloating (fennel, ginger, tarragon, cumin, mint, coriander, anise). You can either consume them or use them for an abdominal massage.
10. The fibres:
Surprise! We all know how much fiber is good for our body. Well, it represents a good omen against your regular bloating. There are two classes of fibers; insoluble and soluble.
Insoluble fiber can stimulate intestinal transit to rid you of constipation and bloating, however, it should not consume in excess. These famous insoluble fibres are contained in whole grains, almonds, nuts, fruits, and vegetables…
It is remarkably effective against gas and bloating. A good infusion of chamomile after each meal is the reflex to adopt. The advantage is that it is gentle enough to even treat your children.
12. The catnip:
A little catnip with your infusions of fennel, that’s the key! This recipe works wonders and presents a fairly sweet solution for the consumption of the youngest as chamomile.
Even newborns can have a few tablespoons without any danger. So here is a long list of ingredients that can help you to fight your anxieties against this bloated belly that puts you off.
Let me now reveal to you a recipe for any age, which has the gift of instantly getting rid of stomachaches and bloating:
– Dried dill leaves,
– Crushed ginger peel (not to be used for babies and infants),
– Seeds of crushed fennel,
– Dried chamomile leaves.
Prepare a mixture of equal parts of the different ingredients that you infuse in boiling water for 10 minutes. Do not worry, if you do too much. Just pour the excess into ice cube trays and place it in the freezer. So you will be dressed in case of urgent need. And now, you know all that you need to get rid of your bloating.
A little advice: eat slowly and take the time to chew well. A meal should take you at least 20 minutes. Remember to reduce your stress level; this can affect your speed while eating.
If you do not chew your food properly, the work of digestion becomes more difficult and the risk of aerophagia greater. Now, ladies and gentlemen, I think I can let you fight alone against these damn gases with a clear conscience. Because I taught you everything I knew!
