Holidays and eating pretty much go hand in hand. Whether you’re snacking on Christmas cookies or indulging in leftover turkey and pumpkin pie — you’re probably going to experience a little bloating. Worry not! There are things you can do to alleviate that pain and help keep you regular.
Here are 11 tips that’ll help keep your digestive tract moving so you can avoid holiday bloating:
Drink A Lot Of Water
How much water do you typically drink during the day? Whatever the number is, you’re going to want to double it during the holidays — maybe even triple. Dehydration is one of the main causes of belly bloating.
It’s important you allow the toxins in your body to flow through you. Increasing your water intake will do that. Sure, you might have to run to the bathroom a little more than usual but that’s better than being uncomfortable and feeling heavy, right?
