Woohoo! We were featured in the Daily Mail today in an article focused on beating the bloat. Two nutritionists, Lovissa Nilsson and Shona Wilkinson shared their pro tips and eating plans on how to reduce bloating and achieve a flatter stomach.
To summarise just a few of their expert tips, they recommended eating five times a day rather than three so that your digestive system is given smaller and easier meals to digest. Drinking six to eight glasses of water a day and chewing your food as much as possible, all with the aim of helping your digestion.
The nutritionists recommended incorporating easy to digest foods such as kale, egg whites, grapefruit and yoghurt, all of which also help speed up your metabolism.
Foods to avoid:
The nutritionists also said that the key to beating the bloat is just as much about what you should avoid eating too. They highlighted sugar, wheat, caffeine and alcohol as being particularly troublesome.
"By cutting these out, drinking more water and eating more lean proteins you'll also help balance your blood sugar levels, which means you'll have a steady amount of energy to help stop those cravings for unhealthy, fattening foods like crisps, sweets and chocolate."
Shona Wilkinson, in-house nutritionist at the NutriCentre, also recommend our 'One week flat' supplement as part of a longer-term method to a "flatter and slimmer tummy". Shona recommend our live cultures as part of a digestive support.
"Try a probiotic such as OptiBac 'One week flat' that may be especially helpful for those with bloating."
Thanks to Shona and the Daily Mail for the shout out. You can read the full article on the Mail Online website.
