Is your stomach feeling fat? Is it hard to get into that dress or those jeans? It can be embarrassing if you have a date or a party and your tummy is feeling bloated, larger than normal and uncomfortable.
Bloating is commonly due to gas buildup in the gastrointestinal tract, sometimes accompanied by burping. It can be related to physical issues, the type of foods you eat or lifestyle habits. In most cases, this problem can resolve on its own with some changes in habits or diets.
8. Digestive Issues Can Cause Bloating
If you have these symptoms after eating, it could be due to a food allergy or intolerance, such as to wheat, eggs, or lactose intolerance. Or it can be from eating high-fat foods and eating your food too fast.
Constipation can make your tummy feel fuller and tighter, and you may need to add fiber or more probiotics, the good bacteria to help the intestines work better.
7. Increase Your Activity and Exercise
Any form of exercise or movement of your abdominal muscles, like in yoga, encourages the release of gas or bloating and creates stronger muscles. Better posture and toning, even if just walking or stretching, can prevent the bloated feeling.
