GET REAL GUIDE to Bloating

When I see an article with “anti-bloat” foods, I’m like, girl, please. Drinking cucumber water is not going to make my stomach look any flatter.

I don’t know about you, but I’m so sick of reading the same article about water, exercise and fiber as the anti-bloat cure. Sure, for occasional bloating in someone with no other issues that advice could work. But how about advice for women who, despite doing everything “right”, look 3 months pregnant on the regular.

Let’s get real, you’re bloated! 😥 

It’s so tricky to offer a “one size fits all” solution for chronic bloating because it’s a common symptom for many different health challenges.

To get that flat tummy I know you want, you need to address the cause (or causes) of why you’re bloated in the first place.

The diagram below shows what I would ask a client who reports chronic bloating:

You might find you answer yes to a couple (or all) or the questions below. I’m not surprised. Nutrition based health challenges are so often a combination of issues.

Each “problem” outlined in the black boxes has a manageable (and even easy!) solution, so don’t sweat it if this sounds like you.

So now that you have a general idea of what could be going on, I’m sure you’re ready to feel better ASAP. For example, you might suspect you have a food sensitivity but have no clue what do next.

I got you, girl.

For FREE you can click to download my Bloating Get Real Guide Supplemental PDF, where I outline what next steps you should take in each of the above situations (black boxes).

Usually, this kind of exchange of information would take 3-4 sessions with a client ($300-400). But I get that 1. You’re busy and 2. You don’t have a lot of extra cash lying around.

While part of me can’t believe I’m giving away this information for free, the other part is like, no one deserves to be bloated! Plus, I’m feeling generous since it was my birthday on Sunday.

If you found this guide helpful, please share. Because let’s get real, you never which of your fabulous (& bloated) friends needs some advice 😎

    This is great advice! Thanks so much for sharing. I used to have so much trouble with bloating… I have a lot of food intolerances (gluten dairy and soy) and an incredibly sensative tummy… so the bottom of my tummy swells up and I look pregnant if I eat something that my stomach doesn’t like :( Also, I can’t chew gum either. Great tips!! Thanks girl!

      I’m so happy you’re feeling better, Cailee! So interesting how many people I meet who have food sensitivities who also can’t do sugar alcohols (gum). Thanks for sharing!

    I love these “Get-Real” segments, so much good info! Maybe the reason I get bloated sometimes is because I eat too fast! Good to know!
