These 10 bloating remedies will give you bloating relief quickly and naturally!

Bloating remedies are something you might just be in need of after Thanksgiving.  I know for us, we eat TWO full meals so its pretty much standard that a little de-bloating is needed.  Anytime I go on vacation or overindulge on a holiday, these 10 steps help to get me back in the swing of things and kill the bloat within a few days!

10 Ways to beat Post-Holiday Bloat

Tip 1:  Increase veggies and proteins! 

This is kind of obvious, but when you are going from eating one too many holiday desserts to eating healthier it can be hard!  Focus on getting enough servings of veggies and proteins during the day.  This will help you to make healthier food choices throughout the day.

Tip 2:  No eating after dinner! 

Avoiding bedtime snacks can help to eliminate bloat and weight gain.

Tip 3:  Ditch the alcohol! 

With all of the sneaky sugar and calories in alcoholic drinks, skipping these will speed up your de-bloating process.

Tip 4:  Skip processed foods! 

Processed foods can be full of additives, sugars, and chemicals that hinder our progress.

Tip 5:  Drink more water!

Water helps our bodies to flush out the toxins of our less than stellar food choices.

Tip 6:  Choose whole grains! 

Grains can be a trigger food for bloating. But if you are going to incorporate grains, opt for whole-grain or even gluten-free grains like quinoa!

Tip 7: Avoid sugar! 

If you can reduce your sugar intake, the effect of making healthier food choices is amazing!  By lowering your sugar just a bit you will be able to lessen junk food cravings and help to make better food choices.

Tip 8:  Exercise! 

Exercising for 30 minutes per day does wonders for bloating.  When you pair exercise with healthy eating you are more likely to stick to your new routine.  Why put in all of that effort, just to undo it with poor food choices?

Tip 9:  Find an accountability partner.

Sometimes getting into a healthier routine is easier when you have someone doing it with you!  Ask a friend or relative to be your accountability partner.  Knowing you have someone relying on you to show up makes it easier for you to stay consistent.

Patience is key!

Tip 10:  Be patient! – the bloat will go down! 

Following these few healthy tips will help you to lose some holiday bloat in just a few days.

Making clean eating choices more often than not will help with weight loss!  I like to shop at Aldi and Walmart to find organic and clean eating foods that help to support my health & fitness journey.  By eating clean, I’ve been able to keep off 50 pounds since having my youngest daughter 4 years ago!  Clean eating is definitely a long-term solution for health and weight loss.

    I needed this post. I will be going to Israel right after Christmas, which means a lot of pictures. Bloating in pictures to memorialize being in another place is not my idea of cute pictures. This post will definitely come in handy. I eat the most around Christmas, even more than Thanksgiving.

      I feel the same way because the Christmas season lasts longer! more treats to indulge in 🙂 Israel sounds amazing, have a great time!

    Avoiding sugar is my biggest trick – but hard to do around the holidays!! Sugar seriously takes a toll on my gut though.

    I hate feeling bloated! I especially become bloated after eating carbs so I will definitely look into getting some whole grains!

    1. mommafitpgh@gmail.com

      November 29, 2017 at 8:34 am

      yes! carbs do it for me too! I try to avoid them (the processed kind) unless its a splurge!

    Isn’t it funny how all these tips are so basic and common sense, and yet so many of us forget to do them (or choose not to because that bowl of ice cream after the kids go to bed is better than therapy)? Thanks for the reminder!

      November 29, 2017 at 8:33 am

      hahaha well ice cream is cheaper than therapy LOL!

    Great tips! Ive got a few of them down pat, like drinking water! Its those pesky winter treats that are causing the bloat!

      November 29, 2017 at 8:08 am

    These are great tips! I am one person who used to bloat really badly. So bad that I can look pregnant when I am actually not… But ever since I cut down carbs, sugar and increase my water intake and exercised regularly, it has improved significantly. I used to think that drinking so much water is just gonna bloat my belly even more but it is so important to do so and let your body flush out the toxins…

    1. mommafitpgh@gmail.com

      November 29, 2017 at 8:08 am

      it sounds like you have a really great plan already! but you are right about water, its so important to flush out the toxins!

    Thanks for writing this because I had no idea that eating certain grains could cause bloating. I experience this a lot. Most women do. But these are great tips to help alleviate something that’s so uncomfortable.
