“I wish my butt bloated like my stomach does”One big thing many of us struggle with is stomach bloating. There are a number of factors that can cause or contribute to this but I have some great tips for you to try.
Please note: This is coming from the QUEEN of bloating. I must thank Dairy for acting as a main contributor to this!
I have spent years going through the struggle of bloating + IBS, to which I wouldn’t wish upon anyone as these issues can certainly play a huge impact on your life mentally, physically and socially.
To think it took me 6 months working in promotion for a yogurt company to realise I was lactose intolerant certainly wasn’t one of my brightest moments in my health journey.

EAT MORE PROTEIN..
As you’ve probably noticed, I am a big advocates of protein and all its benefits. Protein surprises your apiece, making you feel fuller for longer + keeps you satisfied making you less inclined to snack on other foods.
We recommend including some form of protein in every meal as a simple and effective tip for a flat tummy! You should be aiming to hit your protein goal EVERYDAY. 

LIMIT ADDED SUGAR + PROCESSED FOOD..
Even if you are within your healthy calorie range, these foods encourage bloating and increased fat around the mid-section. Processed food and added sugars feed bad bacteria in the gut, which can cause bloating and abdominal discomfort.

WATER INTAKE.. 
Drinking up to 3L of water will help to flush the digestive system and reduce bloating. It also has numerous other benefits such as helping to clear acne and making you feel fuller for longer. 
Water is the best way to rid your body of unwanted toxins and fat.

RESISTANCE TRAINING..
The ‘GO-TO’ training when it comes to FAT LOSS! Building muscle helps to burn fat. 
Gone are the days people are scared of weights making them bigger – it will greatly assist with overall fat loss and tighten your mid-section in no time (as long as you’re eating in a calorie deficit).

EAT WHOLE FRESH FOODS..
Fresh fruit, veggies and lean protein will ensure your body is working at it’s best resulting in a faster metabolism, increased fat loss and a healthier gut.

MANAGE STRESS LEVELS
Stress is not only bad for us mentally and emotionally, it also has detrimental effects on our weight and body. Stress triggers the release of cortisol, which can increase appetite and fat storage.

QUALITY OF SLEEP
Yep, that’s right! Sleep helps with bloating too!
Studies have repeatedly linked inadequate sleep to weight gain.
