There is nothing more discomforting than a bloated stomach! The truth is, that most people think they are fat, when in fact they are actually just bloated. Here are 5 things that cause your stomach to bloat:

dehydration-1-2

5Insufficient water intake

Dehydration is a major cause of numerous health problems. Excessive consumption of coffee and alcohol only contributes to the problem. When was the last time you had 6-8 glasses of water during the day?

When the body lacks water, it uses the liquids from its tissues, which means that bloating may appear as a result of fluid retention. So, try to drink more water.

Constipation

4Constipation

Constipation is a rather unpleasant issue, and it indicates that you need more fiber-rich foods. The gasses that remain trapped behind the feces will not stand still for a long time, you know.

Eat your fiber gradually, otherwise you will only make the problem even worse. Buy whole grain bread, and stay away from white bread. Indulge in smoothies and berries. Sounds delicious, right?

3Chronic stress

Believe it or not, stress may cause bloating. When you are under stress, your digestive system fails to perform its function properly. Your bloating may be caused by constipation and stomach ache. So, try to free yourself from the negative emotions, and you will solve your problem for good.
