Banish The Bloat

belly bloat 1It’s summer. How’d that commitment to your spring diet go? Still battling the bulging belly? Sometimes people go to some extremes dieting and actually do everything that could in fact inhibit the ultimate goal, having a flat belly. Sometimes it’s not just what you eat but how to manage stress and rest that’s out of whack. Many people aren’t just adding fat to their body but basic bloat. What is bloating? Well it’s not fat it’s toxicity in your connective tissue or extra cellular matrix (AKA: Fluid stability system outside of your cells). Here’s some simple things to consider and evaluate before you decide you have to eat rice cakes and celery to lean out your belly.belly bloat 2

  1. Do your workout first thing in the morning. A recent British study revealed you can burn an additional 20% of calories doing your workout in the morning before you breakfast. Don’t kill it. A 30-45 minute cardio/interval workout is plenty to increase the burn.
  2. Turn your ipods, ipads, computers, and LED screen objects off up to one hour before you go to bed. It alters your melatonin production and can increase how much time it takes for you to finally get to sleep.
  3. Sleep in a pitch black room. Although waking up to sunlight sounds like a wonderful idea, unless you are getting up at 5am, the sun is coming through your windows before you are ready to get up. This can make serotonin production begin too quickly and again, decrease melatonin. This can mess up your hormonal balance and increase issues that are related to aging.
  4. Your body mirrors your lifestyle. If you are dealing with high stress levels, constantly checking your texts and emails, and worrying about everyone and thing around you, except you, your belly will appear bloated because your stress levels aren’t managed well. You have to help your body’s natural regulators of stress, repair, and digestion go back to balance. It’s easy to do.
