How can you get rid of bloating after meals?
Many women can feel exceptionally bloated after meals of any size, particularly when they are pretty handsome helpings.
Indeed, for some ladies the horrible bloated feeling (and appearance) is enough to put them off going for a fancy meal with their friends or significant other.
There's no need to avoid going out for dinner altogether, however.
In fact, according to Anna Mason, founder of Distance Dieters, there is a way to cut out the bloating after eating by simply making a few healthy living changes.
A great idea is to order a glass of water with your meal, as well as have ample amounts of the old H20 in the day.
"Drink plenty of water - 1.5 to two litres each day. This will help to flush out the system and if you are dehydrated will hydrate you. People who do not drink enough can also suffer from bloat," Ms Mason recommended.
Overall, it is advisable to have about six glasses of water per day. Not only will this get rid of the bloat, it will help flush out toxins in your body leaving your skin soft, supple and youthful.
"The easy way to consume your water is to have a large glass with each meal and snack you eat," she explained.
If you're drinking alcohol with your meal (which can make you extra bloated), be sure to have even more water, as alcohol does dehydrate you.
Cut out processed foods
According to Ms Mason, processed foods are full of bloat-inducing ingredients.
If you're prone to bloating, she recommends removing processed foods from the diet completely, instead opting for natural and fresh products.
"Flour and wheat-based products will promote bloating and a feeling of discomfort, [and] they will also promote headaches and insomnia," she also explained.
Some fresh foods can make you feel bloated, as well. Typical culprits include beans, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, sprouts, onions and garlic.
If you have exhausted all other avenues, there is a chance that you could have a food intolerance if your stomach is never flat after meals.
Food intolerances, such as wheat or dairy allergies, can cause fluid retention which often resorts in bloating.

- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you Emiliano for your comment. In this blog we are referring more to oils, more so than butters and while we agree with you Shea is an excellent emollient for hair, it's consistency is more buttery and it is used more as a leave-in remedy to smooth hair texture. We have suggested Coconut oil as it helps slow down hair loss by penetrating deep into your hair shaft to prevent protein loss, which in turn prevents breakage. When applied to your scalp, it simultaneously moisturises and removes build-up around your hair follicles to encourage hair growth and is one of base oils always used in Ayurveda for hair treatments. As this post is more focused for hair and not for skin, the comedogenic scale applies to skin/pores and not hair follicles. Thank you again for your feedback.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Hello Zu, yes hair loss can be very stressful and this in turn amplifies the cause almost.. Perhaps with Covid, your system may have been depleted of nutrients and fighting the virus can take its toll on your immune system, so sometimes our hair and skin suffer when we have been ill. We really believe in oils for scalp massage as the best way to revive the growth and help regenerate the follicles. It may be also worth at looking at internal supplements and making sure you are getting enough of omega oils, perhaps plant based such as nuts and seeds in your diet. For external oil treatment, would recommend the Really Good Hair oil which we create with Brahmi, this herb is known to help bring the scalp back to health and improve growth. Biotin is also a good vitamin to take as a supplement to help with hair growth so do look into that. So hope these tips will be helpful for you.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?I, am very surprised that your article did not include Organic Shea Butter and that coconut oil, is your number one choice for hair growth and thickness. According to the comedogenic scale, coconut oil, has a rating of (4), on a scale from (0), to (5), on clogging your pores. Why would anyone put coconut oil, on their hair or skin knowing the pores will get clogged up. Shea Butter, on the other hand has a (0), rating on the comedogenic scale, which is great for dry hair and skin and won't clog up your pores.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you for your very informative article. I suffered COVID in December, 2020, and in February I started experience extreme hair loss and all my hair jus falls like a person who is under going Chemo therapy. It's very depressing. Had to cut off all my hair and even the little that is left is falling off daily not sure what to do. Please suggest something.
- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) You can use carrot oil only in small drops on your skin in the morning/during the day since it is highly potent. Carrot oil is rich in vitamins and is a very effective moisturiser. You can also mix a few drops of Carrot Oil with your favorite face cream. You can do that at least twice a week or include it in your daily skincare routine. Hope this helps.
- Carrot Oil for Face Can I use the carrot oil in the day time? Because I am using Vitamin c serum in the night. Please advise. Thanks
