Food, postures, massages No more bloated belly!

Malnourished by hormonal and digestive fluctuations, quick to gain volume, it is often the part we like the least of our body. Here's how to take care of it.

Limit irritants
Moderately reduce your intake of high-energy drinks, chewing gum, fatty foods, strong spices, as-purine, but also alcohol and tobacco. If you still feel bloated after meals, you can occasionally take charcoal or absorb a drop of essential oil (peppermint, tarragon or basil) in a little honey. If problems persist despite your precautions, talk to your doctor.
Take protein in the morning
Proteins are the linchpin of the muscle tissue, so also the abdominal strap. Eating ham, chicken, fish, an egg or tofu for breakfast, it also helps to avoid the traditional trio bread, butter, jam which is often a bit too rich, even if it does not always keep us going until the following meal without any cravings!

Make the right choices

Always make sure you consume reasonable portions, if necessary by splitting your meals: do not get out of the "full" stomach. Eat vegetables every day, preferably cooked. In cooking, use fresh aromatic herbs (mint, tarragon, basil) and spices (coriander, cumin, fennel, bey-dine, ginger, etc.) to improve digestion and prevent inflammatory phenomena.

Adopt these reflexes

Eat slowly, in a quiet environment, chewing each mouthful about thirty times. The food we swallow should be systematically reduced to puree. Drink moderately during meals, but at will outside. Repeat
food that you bloat (sign of irritation) and limit them: gluten or cow's milk for some rice or chickpeas for others ... N do not forget that your stomach does not have the same tastes as your palate!

Good habits everyday

Good posture, good breathing

The belly should not be swollen, return, just held in slight suspension towards the diaphragm. When the belly is relaxed, the abdominal strap is distended and the organs come out of their natural place, the pelvis. Consequence: viscera gorges more blood, and their weight is stretching more and more this strap. Thus, not only is the digestion slowed down, but, moreover, the fat invades the rest of the available volume. This is why we have often been told to "get in" the belly. An improper term that suggests contracting it, which would result in narrow breathing in the upper body. In reality, during breathing, the air we breathe fills the lungs, the diaphragm (the main muscle of the breathing) is lowered and puts pressure on the belly which, by resisting this thrust, comes to massage all the organs, but still remaining supple.

Sit down without squeezing it

At the office or by car, every time you sit, make sure you have your buttocks slightly behind, so as to maintain a small lumbar hollow. This position allows to lengthen the belly and to leave him more space. Try to imagine that you are being photographed: the bust straightens up and you stretch your belly upwards. In this position, the fluids circulate better, the belly is less compressed, it lodges naturally in the basin instead of making the fame use "body trucker". In addition, lower back pain is avoided.

Deep Muscle
The generation of today's Aquinas has long been a time of tedious exercise of the abdominal muscles. An error according to the physiotherapists who point out their negative results: harmful downward pushing of the organs and masculation in a ball that makes the belly stand out instead. At the moment, it is rather the movements of Pilates, yoga or soft gym, in which one must stick his belly button on the spine before any effort, which are recommended. This is the best way to get muscled in-depth, by protecting yourself from organ descents and other urinary leakage concerns.
Here are three exercises to do each day for 10 minutes. On all fours on the knees, arms and thighs in the vertical (like a table), flat back, head in the extension of the body and look towards the ground. Inhale while releasing the belly and blow by making it disappear under your ribs, navel pressed against the spine. Repeat. Lie on your back, take the right knee in your hands, the left leg is stretched to the ground (if possible). When exhaling, push the right knee, which will lift your head and shoulders, keep the belly button firmly in your spine. Hold, release, then resume. Then change your leg. Leaning on the forearms and toes, look in your hands, your body forms a board. Hold this position for a few seconds to a minute, with the belly and per-contracted, but without blocking your breath. Repeat.

Moving to burn fat
At the time of menopause, the hormonal changes cause a different distribution of fats ... and they particularly appreciate the ab-demon! To remedy this, practice for at least 30 minutes, three times a week, an activity of your choice: brisk walking, exercise bike, training, exercises.
