HOW TO BEAT BLOATING
LET’S BE REAL… we have ALL been there: sometimes it’s a food baby, but sometimes we are screaming to the heaven’s “WHY ME????!” and it’s not our fault (maybe)! Let’s dive into this common question and DO SOMETHING about it…
DRINKING PLENTY OF WATER is key to maintaining your digestion, breaking down all the fats, carbs and proteins we are in-taking. Sometimes we’ve just gotten used to being dehydrated and yet still pushing through! It’s no problem though, my TOP TIP to make sure we get those 11 cups (2.7 L) of water in daily is to have a 2 L water bottle - simple, right? I swear I feel so proud walking around with mine, yeah it looks massive, but YEAH I drink at least 1 per day and have zero doubt that I’ve hit my target! It’s a great visual reminder! I’ll get you one of mine when we get you started on a plan: HERE
Do you take PROBIOTICS? I sure do! (you can DM me on Instagram if you would like to know my go-to brand). This can be intimidating for beginners, I know, because we’re talking thousands of gut bacteria in 1 scoop of this BUT very necessary especially to stimulate healthy digestion.
FIBER. Ah fiber. We in the US are actually very fiber deficient, studies show. Our target is 20-30 grams daily, and this depends on the individual - we’ll not get into the details here but YES as a client I’m gonna need to know how your digestive system is working! So whether it’s the fiber product I use (one scoop has 5 grams of fiber which I add to my shakes or to hot/cold water) or if you’re using the herbal aloe concentrate, everyone has preferences in how much they take daily to meet the target! Depends on what veg we’re eating around these supplements: we’re talking broccoli, leafy veg PLENTY which I’ve included below…..
