6 Natural Ways to Beat the Bloat

—  found in  Well-being  —

Alongside constipation, bloating is the one of the most common complaints others share with me through social media and my YouTube channel. Four years ago I did a 5-part series: “Get a flat belly and improve your digestion” on my YouTube channel. It was a very popular series but since it’s a little outdated I thought it was high time I posted about it again. 

This video is a summary of the best ways to beat the bloat. Plus, check out my latest smoothie recipe: Chocolate Date Protein Smoothie below.

The most common causes of bloating are food sensitivities, bad bacteria and swallowing air.

I know the last cause of bloating sounds rather odd, but I explain in this video what I mean.

Many people start their day out bloated because they eat the wrong breakfast, here is a bloat-free, energizing and super yummy smoothie that I am personally sipping on right now! This smoothie made enough for Walker and I. I added Chocolate Chia Granola topper to mine.

  • 3 tbsp whole chia seeds
  • 3-4 medjool dates, pitted

  1. Place all ingredients into a blender and give a whirl! Blend until creamy and smoothe.

And before I go, I must remind you that my all-time favourite anti-bloat remedy is lemon and water.

Hi there, I'm getting married in 1 week in Jamaica. I have been doing the grain free detox for 3 weeks and feel great. Any advice for the two days leading up to the wedding to have to flattest belly? Specific things I should avoid? Thanks, Valerie

I am a little confused on the protein powder and Greens. Since it's processed and not raw, why do you promote it so highly? Wouldn't it be bad for our body since it under went processed to become what it is when you buy it?

Hi! Where can I buy the fermented vegan proteins+ and greens+ Flavors mentioned above? I live in the US and am having a hard time finding it? Or, is there an alternative product you would recommend? By the way, I love your blog! It is so informative, and I just bought your book the other day!
