BLOATING

Okay, I know the culprits of bloat, sodium, pms, etc. BUT how do you get rid of it fast???????

And what can I do to prevent it in the future? Waking up bloated is the most uncomfortable thing and honestly, it ruins my mornings sometimes.

Anyone else battle bloat???

I don't really understand bloating. I mean, some days my jeans will be a little tighter for no particular reason, but it's never been so much that it ruins my day. Do people really get that much bigger? How much bigger?

I sometimes get so bloated that pants that are loose on me don't fit. I can gain 5-7 pounds overnight. Mine is due to a medical thing I have but also salt affects me badly.

A good natural way to lose it is to eat foods that are naturally a diuretic...examples are parsley, lemon, asparagus.

Another really good way to get rid of bloat (in addition to trying to cut down on sodium) is to temporary reduce your carbohydrate intake. Carbs molecules hold onto water (thus their name -- carboHYDRATE). That's why a lot of people on low carb diets lose a lot of weight in the first week or so... much of it is water (although there are metabolic advantages to getting more of your calories from lean protein than simple carbs, but that's not the point of this string). Anyway, if you cut down on or cut out bread, sweets, etc. altogether for a few days, you could notice a dramatic difference.

I agree with the above poster. I went on a low carb diet for the last week, nothing but veggies, salads, a little fruit, and poultry and fish. no milk. no grains. I could not believe the way I felt - no intestinal bloat at all! In fact, in almost felt as "clean" as after I did the intestinal cleansing prior to a colonoscopy. My jeans fit so much better. But I was a bit constipated, so ate a bowl of high fiber cereal. oh the pain of the return of the bloat. try cutting out wheat products and breads and cereals.

I suffer with bloating every month! I usually gain 3-6 lbs. the week before my period. I try to remember to lay off the salt, drink lots of water, and tea, and keep up my workouts. This usually keeps the bloating down.

To the above poster: I gain about a size in my jeans and bra for a week each month!

I feel bloated every month, it's annoying. IF you stop the white carbs during the time it's sooooooo much easier. Oh, and stay away from mexican food chips.

bloating

Hi, I can wake up looking like I'm 9 months pregnant. On morning when I don't wake up bloated, I look just overweight, not pregnant. I mean, my entire stomach area is so distended, I've had doctors ask if I was due in the next week or so. I was working as a CNA in a hospital a couple years ago when it started.

I have gerd, have been dieting and find when my stomach gets irritated from the gerd or my hiatal hernia, my stomach swells. I know it is from inflammation and once it gets soothed it goes down. I also notice that while loosing weight, my stomach is still bouncy. Is this the visceral fat?

If you go grain free, eat lots of nuts. They have lots of fibre. Specific Carbohydrate Diet recipes have nut bread recipes that aren't entirely 'bread' like, but work great in a grain free diet for crunchy things or sandwhich/burger holders.

I've done short grain free stints and have never had a problem with constipation, but I've always eaten a lot of nuts while doing it.

Many people find eliminating wheat eliminates bloat. I know that's the case for myself.
