Do you have a bloaty belly from overindulging? Beat the bloat in a hurry with these easy tips!


Fill up with water: to prevent water retention caused by dehydration.

Eat fibre: to help flush everything through your digestive tract quicker.

Move: Exercise will help you beat constipation.

Eat and drink bloat-reducing foods and drinks: such as peppermint tea, ginger, pineapple, yoghurt, and parsley.

Limit salt: which also causes you to retain water.

Calm down with the chewing gum: It causes you to swallow air, which also adds to bloating.
