14 Ways to Feel Seriously Lighter By The End of The Day

March 13, 2015 3 min read

Slimming down takes time and dedication, but a few quick tricks can help you feel a little bit lighter in just one day. Read on to feel less bloated and puffy—and get a flatter belly—by the end of today! In The Morning... Drink Hot Water and Lemon A mug of hot lemon water in the morning wakes up your digestive system and helps get things moving. You can drink green tea with lemon if you don't like the taste of warm lemon water on its own. Go Dairy-Free Many people experience belly discomfort and bloating after eating dairy. If you can relate, avoid cream and yogurt at breakfast. Detox With Yoga Yoga twists can support digestion to help rid your body of toxins. Click here to check out a free Yoga flow video. Have a Tropical Snack Both pineapple and papaya contain enzymes—bromelain and papain, respectively—that help banish bloat by breaking down protein and easing digestion. All Day Long... Slow Down Eating too quickly can cause air to be trapped in your system, so chew slowly to minimize bloating. Don't Chew Gum It's a secret of de-bloating brides—stop the gum chewing to feel less puffy. And it's not only because chewing gum causes you to swallow more air; many gums contain sugar alcohol, which also can make you feel bloated. Drink More Water Good old H2O helps flush your system of toxins and extra salt, which can be responsible for that puffy feeling. Keep a water bottle with you at all times to remind yourself to drink more water throughout the day and ensure you're always filling up. Afternoon: Eat Quinoa Quinoa's many nutrients include fiber and potassium, both of which are important if you'd like to feel less bloated. All Day: Check Portions The reason you're feeling full and bloated could be your portion sizes. If you find that you're constantly feeling stuffed after a meal check out this portion control guide: Screen Shot 2015-03-13 at 12.48.39 PM Screen Shot 2015-03-13 at 12.48.49 PM Have a fibre rich snack: Many women don't get enough fiber, which is the key to feeling full, energized, and bloat-free. You should aim to get 25 to 30 grams of fiber a day; reach that goal by snacking on fiber-rich foods like avocado, raspberries, chia seeds, and pears. Skip Happy Hour: Whether it's a glass of wine with dinner or a cocktail at happy hour, that drink can make you feel bloated for many reasons. Not only can the alcohol cause digestion issues, but all that sugar in your fruity drink can make you feel sluggish as well. Not only that, those drinks can lead to deep-fried decisions when dinnertime rolls around. Keep temptations away by skipping out on happy hour or sticking to noncarbonated water with lemon. Go For Asparagus Asparagus encourages digestive health by stimulating the growth of good bacteria in your body. Eat a dinner that's heavy on the veggies, and add a lean protein like chicken or fish for further debloating properties. Skip the Dessert Fatty, sugary foods can cause bloating, as can foods high in artificial sweeteners. Skip the carb-heavy, sugary desserts, and go for fresh fruit, which is high in fiber and water, to help you debloat. Get to Sleep on Time Sleep helps regulate your metabolism, so lack of sleep can make you feel sluggish in more ways than one. Keep your body working at its best by ensuring you get seven to nine hours of sleep at night. H/T: WomensHealth
