5 Ways to Beat Bloating for Good

Struggling With Constant Bloating?

There is nothing fun about feeling bloated. I’ve been there, and I know how it can ruin your day. If you’re wondering what is causing your bloating this blog post is for you!

Here are five practical and simple strategies that have worked for me and my clients to beat bloating and feel better fast:

Rule Out Food Sensitivities

I battled with constant bloating and fatigue throughout my late teens and early 20’s. It wasn’t until I started studying nutrition that I became aware of the link between what I was eating and how it made me feel. Foods like gluten and dairy were wreaking havoc on my digestive system. Recent studies have shown that food sensitivities can lead to chronic inflammation and gastrointestinal distress, contributing to bloating and fatigue.

I offer two effective methods to identify food sensitivities: the ALCAT test, which analyzes your body’s reaction to over 450 substances, and my Food Sensitivity Elimination Protocol, a step-by-step approach to discovering problematic foods. These tests provide valuable insights and a clear action plan. Schedule a free consultation with me to determine which method suits you best.

Stay Hydrated

I used to forget to drink water and would end up feeling sluggish and bloated. One of my clients, Sarah, faced similar issues. She started carrying a reusable water bottle and set reminders on her phone. Proper hydration is essential for maintaining optimal digestive function and overall energy levels. Recent research indicates that dehydration can impair digestion and lead to bloating. Herbal teas and water-rich foods like cucumbers and watermelon also helped keep her hydrated. Now, she adds a slice of lemon or a few mint leaves to her water for a refreshing twist, which has made staying hydrated much more enjoyable.

I recommend drinking 1/2 of your body weight in ounces of pure water daily. I promise it’s one of the main things you can do to beat bloating, get your digestion moving, boost your metabolism, and increase energy.

Eat Smaller, More Frequent Meals

Large meals always left me feeling stuffed and tired. I remember a client, Mark, who had the same problem. We switched him to smaller, balanced meals and snacks throughout the day. Studies support that smaller, frequent meals can stabilize blood sugar levels and improve digestive efficiency. It keeps your energy levels steady and your digestive system happy.

Snack ideas include a handful of almonds, a piece of fruit, or hummus with veggies. For meals, think about plant-based recipes like quinoa salad, tempeh stir-fry, or a hearty vegetable soup.

Incorporate Probiotics and Digestive Enzymes

Probiotics and digestive enzymes have been game-changers for my digestion. One client, Maria, suffered from severe bloating until she started incorporating probiotic-rich foods like yogurt, kefir, sauerkraut, and kimchi into her diet. Probiotics help balance gut bacteria, which can reduce bloating and improve digestion.

Digestive enzymes assist in breaking down food more efficiently, reducing the risk of bloating and discomfort. You can also take high-quality probiotics and digestive enzyme supplements. Look for probiotics with multiple strains and a high CFU count, and digestive enzymes tailored to your specific needs.

Move Your Body Daily:

A simple walk or yoga session can do wonders. I had a client, John, who struggled with fatigue and bloating until he started incorporating daily walks and yoga into his routine. Physical activity promotes regular bowel movements and enhances overall digestive function. Aim for at least 30 minutes of moderate exercise most days of the week.
