Top 10 Best Anti-Bloating Foods That You Can Eat!

Top 10 Best Anti-Bloating Foods That You Can Eat!

You had a quick snack bite, however, you feel like you had just eaten a bucket of chicken plus the fries and polished it with Diet (only Diet of course) Coke? Does this sound even a little bit familiar to you? If you aren’t a pregnant woman (pregnant women tend to experience this kind of discomfort rather frequently), you need to think about changing your diet.

The least you need to do, is to add the right kind of food in your diet, which will not only prevent the bloating, but will also bring a lot of positive aspects to how you feel in general.

There is a reason for everything, so let’s see what are the reasons we experienced this kind of very annoying discomfort. It is said that “we are, what we eat”, we can also say “what we eat affect how we feel”.

  • Over-eating – is certainly one of the reasons for feeling bloated. I understand sometimes the meal is so good that we feel the need to finish it all, or we are extremely hungry and start eating everything on a speed of light. Believe me I understand and I I’ve been there. Continue reading you will find out my suggestions on how to deal with “I can’t stop eating, it just too good”.
  • Eating too many fatty foods. It takes longer to digest and start creating discomfort in your stomach. We’ve all been through a time when we crave something and it is not healthy and we know it. Of course we end up eating it, because we can’t fight the craving , however, a few things can be done in this situations as well.
  • Eating too fast. Nowadays people have very high pace life’s. We are so busy that even a meal became fast, meaningless, and more importantly very unhealthy. Here’s the third reason for feeing like we ate an apple without chewing – eating was too fast.

Before we move on to the list of foods, which will help us to fight bloating discomfort, we need to mention a few good habits that can prevent us from bloating.

Good Habits That Help With Bloating.

Fractional eating is a good solution.

As mentioned about, overeating is a situation we’ve all been in and we know how it is hard to fight it. Hard, but not impossible. Fractional eating is a good solution, believe me, I’m talking through experience. Ordered a big meal during lunch break? Eat half of it and ask to put the rest in a “to-go” box.

Fight your craving with water.

Came back home super “hangry” and want to finish all the food in your fridge? Fight it, drink a glass of water, wait 10-15 minutes and then move on to eating, you’ll be surprised on how your appetite is altered.

Pick better choices.

What about these cravings we sometimes have? There are always ways to “adjust” a fatty meal. What a burger? Have it without sauce and French fries, order water instead of soda. Craving for chips? Choose the baked ones, they are just as good, but less fatty. Want something sweet to drink? Make homemade ice tea with fresh fruits and honey!

My point is that, if you want to eat something unhealthy, always ask yourself: “how can I make it healthier?”.

Here Are The Top 10 best anti-bloating foods That Can Help You.

1. Cucumber

    You know how all beauty blogs and magazines suggest us to put slices of cucumbers, if our eyes are puffy? Hint, hint. Cucumbers have inflammatory elements, so I do suggest, if you are experiencing bloating discomfort. try to slice it up and eat it or put it into your drinking water.

    2. Banana

      I love and respect bananas not only because they are super healthy, but for being super yummy as well. Bananas are rich in potassium, which prevents water retention by regulating sodium levels in your body, hence, it can reduce bloating which is caused by salt intake. It is high in soluble fiber and it is very good for our GI tract.

      3. Kefir

        I am Russian so this creamy, yogurt-like smoothy ( which actually originated in Turkey) is bound to be in the list, because for us (Russians) this drink is an irreplaceable solution for quite a few health-related issues, bloating being one of them. Kefir is packed with probiotics, bacteria which maintain the natural balance of organisms in the intestines, hence it makes you feel better literally in no time.

        4. Asparagus

          This is a superfood when it comes to bloating cure. It is also not the one people buy regularly, and these people should change their habit. It contains probiotics, and you know how good those are. And I’m sorry for more details, but it makes you pee a lot, which is very good, since this process flashes down all the toxins.

          5. Fennel

            Fennel has an element which relaxes GI spasms and helps to relieve bloating. Fennel tea can be a good solution when the bloating is so uncomfortable to the extent that it makes you feel nauseated, and the last thing you want it to eat. Just sip on a fennel tea, and feel relieved with every sip.

            6. Ginger

              We all heard about how useful ginger is when it comes to treating cold, cramps and nausea. Well good news – it can also help you to fight bloating, because it relaxes muscles and helps digestion. It can be used in whatever way you like: added to your tea, salad dressing or a smoothie. My advice though, just to put some fresh ginger in a hot cup of water , wait until it gets warm and drink it.

              7. Chamomile tea

                I think everyone should have a chamomile tea in their tea box, because it’s one of those that taste good, and brings awesome health benefits. The tea relaxes GI muscles and helps to diffuse the gas that causes your stomach to bloat. I also use chamomile tea bags to relax my eyes after a day that I spent in front of my computer and then I drink the tea.

                8. Mint leafs

                  This is useful for a modern person, and I will tell you why. You are in a restaurant/bar with your friends and having a good time and laughs, suddenly you start to experience a strong discomfort in your stomach. Timing can’t be worst. You think you should leave? Of course no, just ask for a hot water with a few mint leafs, and may be ask to add some ginger to it, sip on it and continue to enjoy your evening.

                  Advertising

                  9. Parsley

                    Parsley is being used in cooking for centuries and it doesn’t only add great flavor to dishes, but also has health benefits. It helps to increase the loss of water and salt from the body and helps to make you feel light again. Just like chamomile, ginger and mint it can be put into a cup of hot water, and sipped when warm.

                    10. Cantaloupe

                      This sweet orange melon is packed with anti-bloating potassium and high in water content. It’s very low in calories too so you can cure your bloating discomfort with this fruit without worrying too much about the calories.

                      How About Some Breathing Exercise?

                      Anyone can be faced with a situation where there’s no food or water, and bloating makes it so uncomfortable to proceed whatever you are doing. There’s a solution here as well: 5 minutes of deep abdominal exercises. Sit up straight and really focus of your breathing, if it’s done correctly, it will help.

                      Bloating can create the type of discomfort, which makes you want to stop whatever you are doing. So start picking up good habits about the way you eat and what you eat, and use your precious time for useful, positive and productive activities.

                      10 Benefits of Sleeping Naked You Probably Didn’t Know

                      10 Benefits of Sleeping Naked You Probably Didn’t Know

                      Sleeping is one of the most important things we do every night.

                      Getting the right amount of sleep has an untold number of health benefits and not getting enough sleep is a serious problem in many countries around the world.

                      So you should have heard of the many benefits of getting adequate sleep, but did you know that you can get additional benefits by sleeping naked?

                      Here are some benefits of sleeping in the nude:

                      Video Summary

                      1. It is easier.

                      When you don’t have to worry about sleeping in clothes, things start to get easier. You don’t have to buy pajamas, which can save you money. You have less clothes to wash and less clothes to put away. You may have to clean your bed sheets more often, but not nearly as often as you’d have to wash your pajamas when you run out.

                      2. It forces you to be ready to go more often.

                      Some people get off of work, change into their pajamas, and use this as an excuse to stay home the rest of the evening. This can lead to a more sedentary lifestyle, which has been attributed to things like weight gain.[1] When you keep your regular clothes on, you tend to go out more often and that’s a good thing.

                      3. It can make you feel happier and more free.

                      Just imagine the feeling of laying in bed naked. You’re free of your pants and underwear. Women, you’re not wearing a constrictive bra. It’s just you sandwiched between two cool sheets. The feeling just makes you want to smile and it makes you feel more free. Everyone can use that kind of good feeling every now and then, and it may even help you be happier as a person.

                      4. Skin-on-skin contact is the best.

                      Advertising

                        If you’re married, or living with your significant other, sleeping naked gives a greater chance of skin-on-skin contact, especially when it comes to cuddling. This kind of contact can also lead to a more active sex life. All of this releases copious amounts of oxytocin, which is the neurotransmitter that helps you feel those good feelings about your significant other.[2]

                        5. It could lead to better sleep.

                        Let’s revisit the scenario I described above. There are no drawstrings or clothes getting tangled in sheets. You don’t have to worry about shirts getting twisted. All of these distractions go away when you sleep naked and it may help you get better, deeper sleep. You don’t need science to tell you that better, deeper sleep only helps you be healthier.

                        6. It can help your skin.

                        For once your body gets to breathe. Your private parts, armpits, and feet are generally restricted all day and are often covered by multiple layers, even in the summer time. Give those parts a chance to air out and breathe. This can lower the risk of skin diseases, like athlete’s foot, that result from wet, restricted skin.[3]

                        7. It helps you regulate your cortisol.

                        Cortisol is a very strange chemical in the body but it can do a lot of damage. When you sleep naked, it helps keep your body temperature at the optimal ranges so your body can better create cortisol. If you sleep overheated your cortisol levels tend to stay high, even after you wake up. This can lead to increased anxiety, cravings for bad food, weight gain, and more terrible things.[4] Sleep naked so you can keep your body temperature down and sleep well so your body can properly produce and regulate cortisol.

                        8. It balances your melatonin and growth hormone.

                        Continuing along that same vein, keeping your sleeping environment below 70 degrees (F) every night can help your body regulate its melatonin and growth hormone levels. These chemicals help the body do things like prevent aging and are essential to good health. When you sleep in clothes, your body heats up and prevents effective use of these hormones. In other words, sleeping with clothes on makes you grow old faster.

                        9. It can keep your sex organs happier.

                        For men, the cooler sleeping conditions allows your testes to remain at a cooler temperature. This helps keep your sperm healthy and your reproductive systems functioning as normal. For women, the cooler and more airy sleeping conditions can actually help prevent yeast infections. Yeast grows better in warm, moist conditions.[5] When it’s cooler and dryer, the growth of yeast is prevented.

                        10. Sleeping in the summer is more bearable.

                          Summertime is a tricky time to get good sleep. If you don’t have air conditioning, then you may find your bedroom a bit stuffy at night.

                          Shedding those bedtime clothes can help the bedroom feel more comfortable. You may even be able to turn the A/C off on those cooler nights, which can save you a few bucks on your electricity bill.

                          Don’t wake up drenched in sweat again because your thermostat is downstairs and the hot air expands up to your bedroom where the thermostat can’t read the warm temperatures.

                          Sleep well with your naked body!

                          With these tips in mind, it’s time to start taking off your clothes at night!

                          Of course, there are times where clothes are preferable. If you are ill or it’s cold outside, then you should sleep with clothes on to help you stay warm and prevent further illness. Otherwise, go commando!
