How to lose the holiday-bloat:
The goal is to be able to enjoy ourselves throughout the holidays, without letting all of the hard work from the year go to waste.
2) Try green tea! Iced green tea. Hot green tea. Any green tea. And instead of sugar, try it plain or with agave.
3) Bragg’s Apple cider vinegar in your water first thing in the morning helps to reduce your belly fat!My next tip is to stay active. We end up working out a lot less or not at all during the holidays. So the goal is to continue your workout regimen or to get right back on track when the holidays are over. We don’t want to get caught up with a big, fancy, resolution. Just take it day by day so it becomes your habit and lifestyle.
Yogurts that contains bifidobacteria can help with bloating. Two brands that have this ingredient are Fage Total Greek Yogurt and Activia, both of these contain bifido. If dairy isn’t your thing (if you are lactose intolerant, dairy will leave you bloated), a probiotic supplement, like Align, contains bifidobacteria as well which has the same effect as yogurt.
When potassium is low, the body retains extra sodium and holds on to water. Make sure you eat foods rich in potassium like bananas, tomatoes, mushrooms and spinach.
Digestive problems and bloating are often linked to insufficient stomach acidity,and poor eating habits. Fresh-squeezed orange juice can help increase the acidity within your stomach and promote better digestion, but it should be consumed prior to eating and not combined with most foods. Drinking Trop50 for example could help, not to mention it has 50% less sugar than other options. So you will feel better and not put on those extra calories.
