Swelling of the abdomen is unpleasant and spoils both the figure and self-esteem. The feeling of a swollen belly can even be painful in some cases. The reasons can be different, mostly related to a bad diet.
What can you do to relieve abdominal swelling and regain comfort?
When we eat fast, we don't chew the food well enough. In addition, the rapid absorption of food implies the absorption of a large amount of air, which has no place in the stomach. Therefore, chew food slowly and as long as possible before swallowing.
Frequent eating in small portions
Another easy way to reduce not only bloating but also your weight is to eat small portions 5-6 times a day. In this way, food is metabolized much easier and faster, transformed into energy, and not into fat sticking to unwanted places.
Cut out sugary and carbonated drinks
You don't have to drastically cut back on some of your favorite sweet treats. It is important not to overdo it, but it is more important to give up sugary and carbonated drinks forever. They cause the biggest and most unpleasant swelling in the abdomen. Drink more water and freshly squeezed fruit and vegetable juices.
Eat foods rich in probiotics and prebiotics
Foods rich in natural probiotics like yogurt and fermented foods are a wonderful way to get rid of bloating and gas.
Limit chewing gum, candy and drinking from a straw
Chewing gum, sucking on mints or candies, and drinking from a straw is a prerequisite for air to enter the abdominal cavity. He can stay there sometimes for up to 24 hours because his place is not there and there is no quick way out.
Eat more papaya and ginger
Papaya contains the enzyme papain, which stimulates the breakdown of sugars and accelerates metabolism. Ginger has the property of reducing nausea and discomfort in the abdominal area by reducing bloating as it stimulates bowel movement.
