15 Bloating Remedies That'll Finally Get Rid of That Puffy Stomach Feeling
There's nothing more annoying than slipping on a pair of jeans for date night only to realize that your stomach's so swollen, you can barely zip the pair shut. The good news? While bloating is a common symptom with many causes, there are just as many ways to get rid of it. So next time your clothes are feeling a little too snug, try one of these bloating remedies and get some relief.
This mineral works alongside sodium to help regulate the fluid balance in your body, keeping bloat at bay, says Abbey Sharp, R.D., blogger at Abbey's Kitchen. High-potassium foods include bananas, oranges, tomatoes, watermelon, and asparagus.That last one alsocontains an amino acid called asparagine that — bonus! — to flush excess liquid out of your system.
Beware of habits that cause you to swallow excess air, like chewing gum, as that can cause bloat, says Patricia Raymond, M.D., a gastroenterologist in Chesapeake, Virginia. If you're a regular gum chewer, cut back by sucking on a piece of mint instead, Sharp suggests.
Tossing lemon slices into your water does more than provide flavor. Having a glass right when you wake up, as well as after each meal, can also help you say goodbye to bloat. "Bitter foods like lemon help stimulate your body's GI juices and aid the start of the digestion process," says Frank Lipman, M.D., founder of Eleven Eleven Wellness Center in New York City. "When digestion is robust, your body breaks down food better and absorbs more of its nutrients, both of which help you maintain a healthy weight and flat belly."
To helpget rid of gas, Raymond says to try massaging your abdomen in the direction of your GI tract: Press your fingers near your right hip; slide up toward the ribs, then across and down near your colon in a circular motion. Sounds weird, but she swears it works!
Drinking a soothing peppermint brew is a great way to relieve bloating symptoms on the fly. "Peppermint works to decrease and relax your digestive muscles," saysMcKel Hill,registered dietitian and the blogger behind Nutrition Stripped. Sharp agrees, noting that peppermint leaves have been used as a mild diuretic and digestion aid, while tea can contribute to fluid levels that help battle bloat.
Produce like celery, cucumbers, watermelon, and eggplant are all jam-packed with water, which Sharp says helps your body flush out any excess sodium and get rid of a puffy stomach.
