Bloated? Do These Moves to Ease the Discomfort

No one likes the discomfort that comes with a bloated belly, and while there are no quick-fix solutions for a flatter stomach, there are things you can do to feel better.

We all know that what you eat and drink can help prevent a bad stomach. Skip salt, dairy, wheat, processed foods as well as soda and opt for a high-fiber diet with plenty of water. Eating slowly always helps. Not chewing food properly causes you to swallow air; make sure you also eat smaller meals more often (versus three big meals), since bloating often comes with large meals and smaller meals help control blood sugar, while managing hunger. But beyond what you dine on, how you move can also affect your stomach. We turned to Lyons Den Power Yoga instructor Brooke Easton to find out what workout moves are particularly effective in easing the pains associated with bloating. Start that stretching!
