The surprising mealtime trick that tames bloat-triggering gas and GI upset: Eat your side salad after your entree. The raw vegetables supply fiber and digestion-enhancing enzymes that help your body break down the food in your stomach more efficiently. Also smart: dressing your salad with oil and vinegar. Research has shown olive oil boosts nutrient intake while vinegar helps break down protein and slow carb absorption. The result? No gas, pain, or belly bloat.
Wouldn’t it be great if something you enjoy daily could boost your health and melt fat? Good news: Sipping your morning coffee will do just that! The brew has gentle diuretic properties to flush water weight. Plus, it’s loaded with antioxidants and polyphenols, the most abundant of which is chlorogenic acid (CGA). CGA curbs appetite boosts metabolism by 50% and cuts blood-sugar fluctuations in half. So you stay slim and lower your risk of diabetes. Even better? Opt for medium or light roasted brews, which have more CGA.
