If festive meals lead to acidity, bloating, or constipation, include digestive teas to your diet post meals. Do not skip meals, Nmami warned. She also said that one must enjoy traditional delicacies on Diwali and prepare them at home with healthy ingredients. She also advised starting the day with a power-packed breakfast.
Some time ago, Nmami Agarwal had shared some tips to address the issue of bloating among women. According to her, it happens due to excess gas production or disturbance in the movement of muscles in the digestive system. The easiest way to keep bloating at bay is to avoid overeating. In fact, one of the best ways to avoid overeating is to divide your meals. Eating in long gaps leads to overeating. She suggested chewing food properly so that it gets digested easily. Include prebiotics in your diet like yogurt. Constipation may lead to bloating, she added. Eating fibre-rich food items and drinking plenty of water is advisable. Read more about it here.
