7 of the Best Foods to Reduce Bloating

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!

High-Intensity Workouts: Tips for Beginners and the Benefits for Weight Loss

New workouts can be intimidating, and that’s especially true for HIIT. The name itself might sound a little scary. But it’s not nearly as daunting as you might imagine, and the benefits — muscle definition, improved cardiovascular health,1 and potentially even weight loss2 — make the workout well worth the effort.

 

The acronym, HIIT, stands for “high-intensity interval training,” and it’s used to describe workouts that rely on short blasts of all-out energy (these are the intervals) followed by brief periods of rest (where you catch your breath for the next round). 

 

For decades, athletes have used interval training for weight loss and performance gains. HIIT just formalizes the strategy into an everyday workout. If you’re following a weight loss program or have hit a weight loss plateau — interval training can be a powerful way to boost your efforts.
