How to Decrease Bloating Tips

It happens- we (especially women) often feel bloated. It's uncomfortable. You don't feel like yourself. It sometimes is painful. So- what can you do? I have compiled my list of staples to avoid regular bloating

1: Avoid / limit dairy. Dairy, especially over processed dairy such as milk, cheese, and butter, can severely bloat you. Additionally, low quality whey based protein powders can also bloat you (that usually comes from the filler ingredients and not the whey itself, but rather the overall poor quality of the product in its entirety)
High quality whey
Dairy free protein

2: Drink a gallon of water (at least) a day. It seems counterintuitive that you should drink more to become less bloated but your body HOLDS on to water if you aren't drinking enough (hello- survival mode). Don't give it a reason to hold onto water. We are almost 70% water. Treat your body as such

3: Get 14g of fiber for every 1,000 calories you are eating. We are launching our fiber product in about a month (yippee)! Most people are bloated because they aren't going to the bathroom enough- gross but true. Don't hoard your poop. Get fiber.

4: Take a high quality digestive enzyme before larger meals. Make sure to take one that has papaya extract. Click here for the brand we use and trust

5: Limit carbonated drinks

6: Take 1-2 probiotic pills a day. If you are really bloated, I recommend taking 3 a day for 2 days, 2 pills for 2 days, and then 1 a day following that. You can order ours here

7: Take your greens- micro nutrients will help your gut immensely

8- 4 colon cleanse pills per day until you feel back to normal, highly recommend reading my blog about them

I hope these tips help! If you are still feeling bloated, you might want to seek the help of an allergen specialist to determine if you are allergic to certain foods that are causing you to become bloated
