6 tips to stop bloating. I feel fairly confident when I say that most of us have experienced that uncomfortable bloated feeling at some point in our lives. You know, when suddenly your pants are tighter than usual and you feel uncomfortable and unattractive and just plain icky. The first step is to ensure that you aren’t experiencing any food allergies, so talk to a specialist if you’re not certain. Now that swimsuit season is upon us, you might be tempted to crash diet or dehydrate yourself to get rid of the bloat, but before you take drastic measures try these tips first. Warning, this isn’t a pretty subject, but it’s very real and we need to tackle these topics every now and then. Read more: 6 TIPS TO STOP BLOATING
