Summer is here, and you know what that means: swimsuit season. But who wants to go to the beach if you’re feeling bloated. It not only looks bad, but it can be really uncomfortable.
Here are some ways to fight the bloat!
1. Munch of ginger
When food gets trapped in your stomach, bloating gets worse. Ginger soothes the digestive tract and helps move things alone.
2. Eat a variety of fiber
Eating a variety of different high-fiber foods has been shown to reduce bloating because the right mix of soluble and insoluble fiber improves digestion.. Careful, though, because eating too much of the same high-fiber foods can actually cause bloating due to constipation.

3. Say no to soda and gum!
Swallowed air is another cause of bloating. We swallow air when we chew gum or drink carbonated beverages like soda or beer.
4. Hit the gym more regularly
Regular exercise helps those gas bubbles move through your digestive tract more quickly, preventing bloating or at least helping it disappear faster.
5. Pass the probiotics
Probiotics, found in yogurt or taken in supplement form, contain live bacteria and yeast that have a positive influence on our digestive health. Daily probiotic intake has been linked to a relief of abdominal bloating.
