Beat the Post Holiday Bloat
People aren’t perfect, your diet shouldn’t be either. Don’t feel guilty about the occasional happy hour or ice cream run, it’s all about that 80/20 balance. But after beer and pizza, we typically feel the consequences and end up with a bloated belly. While cutting back on refined carbs, sodium and booze can help, try incorporating detoxifying superfoods into your diet, stay hydrated and get your probiotics to beat the post-holiday bloat.
In your gut there are thousands of little microbes that have a huge impact on everything from how you digest your nutrients to how you handle stress. Probiotics can have a profound impact on bloating by helping your body digest foods efficiently.
Probiotics can be found in fermented foods like kombucha, unpasteurized sauerkraut and yogurt. Supplements can be a foolproof way to ensure you’re getting enough of these little guys, but look for a high quality one with multiple strains instead of just one or two.
