These tips can help you debloat and feel better for summer.

Add Lemon to Your Water: A simple way to feel less bloated is to add some lemon to your water. Drinking water on its own helps relieve bloating because it helps keep the intestinal tract running smoothly. Combining water and lemon creates a refreshing and hydrating beverage that can help you stay slimmer.

Eat More of the Right Vegetables: Vegetables are always an excellent choice. Stick to vegetables that contain a lot of water, such as celery and cucumbers. Add cooked cruciferous vegetables to your diet.

Avoid Sugar and Salts: Sugar is a major cause of bloating for many people. A lot of foods that contain sugar—even fruit—can make people feel gassy and uncomfortable. Artificial sweeteners can also be difficult or impossible to digest, leading to bloating and discomfort. Salt is another culprit when it comes to bloating.

Exercise: Staying active can be beneficial for every system in your body, including your digestive system. When you exercise regularly, you help your digestive system run smoothly and avoid bloating. Various exercises can help strengthen your stomach muscles, which can also help gas move through your system so you don’t end up feeling bloated.
