BLOATING anyone?? I've SO been there!
Abdominal bloating happens when your stomach area feels full and tight. Often, you will notice some swelling in your abdomen. Common causes include overeating, PMS, irritable bowel syndrome, constipation and lactose intolerance. Along with dietary changes, EXERCISES can help relieve bloating symptoms. If symptoms of bloating persist, you should see your doctor.
Some helpful tips:
CARDIO exercises may help relieve abdominal bloating. Exercising helps gas pass through the digestive system. Engaging in a form of cardio exercise for a minimum of 10 minutes can bring relief. You can try walking (your dog will love this, if you have one - my fur-ball forces me to get my butt moving every day!), cycling, swimming, jogging, stair-climbing or step aerobics, or my personal favourite - hiking! Aim to increase the time of your cardio workouts until you are exercising for 25 to 30 minutes three to five times per week.
