The Bloat

It's less than 50 days until Christmas and I'm sure all of you are already busy preparing for gifts and a lot of parties. But during this holiday season, we tend to gulp down a lot of food and the sodium levels in many dishes can cause our bodies to retain water.

A great way to avoid the bloat is to go beyond your usual 8 glasses of water and aim for 10 daily. More water helps the liver and kidneys flush out the toxins that can come from a high-fat diet. You can also banish bloat by eating more slowly. According to nutritionists, speed eating can cause you to swallow more air which can lead to bloating. Digesting the food well can also make you feel fuller longer. Try to chew at least 20 times per bite.

GREAT post! My husband suffers from what he thinks is extreme gas. He has even had his gall bladder out, but was not the problem. This is SO him! Bing former Marine they teach you to eat in like 2 minutes! He is always bloated, causing gas, always eating after dinner. hhmm I'm seeing a treand here. He is normally done eating before I have dished up mine and my son's plate and I sit down. He's done. I read your post to him. Thanks again!
