Good morning and welcome to my TIP OF THE DAY. 

From time to time, do you suffer from a bloated, puffy, protruding tummy that is as hard as nails, feels uncomfortable …. I did and I thought I had an intolerance to gluten but I don't so I had to become a food detective and work out what was making me bloated. The reason I know I am not intolerant to gluten is because I had a food sensitivity test done and they found I had an intolerance to eggs (not good on KSFL) plus I LOVE eggs, garlic and avocado.  I started to eliminate foods out of my diet, first to go pasta then bread, fruit and cows milk. Back in the day I ate a lot of these foods but now they are treats as these type of foods make me bloated.

Below are tips to minimise your bloating.
Have a lovely day.

5 Top Tips to Minimise Your Bloating

1: Ditch the Gluten.

Humans find it extremely difficult to digest gluten. Foods containing gluten such as bread, cakes, pastries, pasta are all common causes of bloating.

Ditch them for a week & watch your bloating minimise.

2: Ditch the Dairy

Cows milk is another common culprit so switch to Almond or Coconut Milk or go without for a week and see what happens

3: Eat smaller portions SLOWLY

I know this is such a dull one but it WORKS.

Take your time when you eat & stop gobbling down your food as fast as possible.

REALLY and I mean REALLY concentrate on the food you are chewing.

Stop looking at the TV or your phone & enjoy the food, ensuring you are not overeating.

Eating a huge amount in record time is another sure fire way to set your bloating going.

4: FRUIT contains SUGAR so Beware.

Do you “think” eating lots of fruit is healthy?

Fruit contains sugar & will create a big spike in cortisol & insulin secretion (fat storing hormones).  Often eating fruit will cause the stomach to swell.  Personally, I eat very little fruit concentrating on eating a wide variety of veggies. I have switched this around as I love fruit so I did find this very hard at first but my bloaty tummy disappeared.  Go easy on the fruit & consume more veggies.

5:Cut the Caffeine Down or Out

Have you ever enjoyed your Grande Cafe Latte only to look & feel 6 months pregnant
5 minutes later?  The milk & coffee is the perfect mix  to gain a rock solid bloated belly, so if YOU really can’t let go of the caffeine fix go for a black Espresso.

Give these tips a go for 7 days & monitor how your bloating feels.
If you are not sure about KSFL this is a great programme to start with as it is only 5 days.  Maybe you have given up sugar and now want to sort out your diet and nutrition in more detail then this is a great “mini”plan. The 5 day cleanse includes a daily 10 minute workout plus positive affirmations, meal planners & recipes plus motivation.  It’s all online & you can start at any time. There is no set start date you work through the 5 days whenever you are ready. Once you sign up and create a log in you get full access to the daily instructions. As a bonus I will add you to my Facebook Support Group and I will check in with you daily to see how you are doing with the NO SUGAR initiative.
