You know the signs — an uncomfortably tight waistband, abdominal pain, excess gas — being bloated isn’t pleasant. After a decadent Thanksgiving meal, you might be all too familiar with that feeling (if you overdid it, don’t worry — here’s how to get back on track). This overly-full sensation can happen for many reasons, even if you haven’t eaten too much.
Health conditions, including irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) or constipation, and the foods you eat can all contribute to bloating.1 Besides consuming smaller amounts of foods that may cause discomfort, including carbonated water, beans, milk and apples,1 eating certain foods may help to naturally reduce your symptoms.
These seven holiday bloat-battling foods may be added to menus from Jenny Craig in moderation and most can be found on the Fresh & Free Additions list.
If you are on the Jenny Craig program, check with your consultant before making any swaps or changes to your plan to ensure you stay on track!
