how to: get rid of the extra belly bloat

Dehydration leads to water retention which leaves you with headaches, an irritable mood, stress, anxiety, dry skin, breakouts, and probably the most noticeable on women? A bloated belly. Dehydration = water retention and the only way to get rid of it is to simply drink more water.

Assuming you’re eating relatively well, exercising a few times a week and keep your sodium intakes in check, the belly bloat will disappear fast once you up your water. Add in some fresh squeezed lemon and you’ll help speed up the process even faster.

Aim for drinking enough water so that your urine is clear. For most this is at least 2 liters a day – especially over the holidays while we’re indulging a little more than usual. Start upping your water intake now and you should notice a major improvement in your belly by new year!
