YOU ARE JUST BLOATED

12 May 2020






It has been a while since my last blog, especially about fitness. 
To be honest, i kinda miss those days where i got so motivated, so passionate about blogging, shared everything, all my progress, thoughts and feeling in my blog. Sometimes, I miss being expressive and being active in blogging. 

(But most people don’t read anymore, everyone is into video) 
But i still enjoying blogging sometimes and i love reading back my own articles 

I started to workout since 2013, of course there is a time i feel demotivated and feel like giving up. 
I was never consistent, stopped working out of months/years and started back again. ON and OFF, ON and OFF, it was a long journey. But, i’m still doing it until now, i love staying active.

Of course, There is time when we worked out best but still look like shit. Same goes to me, there is time when i feel like shit, bloated, demotivated, don’t feel and look at my best but it is totally normal. Hey, No one is perfect, we are all human being. Just sharing this to letting you all know, you are not alone. We are in this together. 

If you want to look LEAN/TONED, there is 3 things you need to aware of.
1. BODY FAT
2. WATER RETENTION
3. MUSCLE MASS
4. BLOATING ISSUES

Today, i’m going to share some of my experience of bloating issues

Well, There is no “PERFECT DIET” that suits everybody, because every individual is different. 
Even our “BODY GOAL” can be different. There is no definition of a perfect body.
Don’t compare yourself with someone else, YOU ARE WHO YOU ARE
Most importantly, love what you are doing, enjoy your journey.

It is really important for you to KNOW YOUR BODY, keep research, testing and do your experiment  with your body to find the perfect diet for yourself. 

Here’s some of the info i would like to share :

WHAT CAUSES BLOATED ?

1. Bloating mostly caused by gas or other digestive issues ( Constipation )
2. Gut Sensitivity ( Gastric Problem )
3. Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO): Most healthy people have relatively few bacteria in the small intestine. People who have had intestinal surgery and/or IBS with diarrhea are more likely to have SIBO, which can cause bloating.

You can always consult a doctor and know your body condition better and know how to improve from there. 

Meanwhile, Here’s something that you should be aware of if you are bloated : 

1. If you have Lactose intolerance allergic like me, avoid diary products like milk etc.
2. Limit your sodium, avoid processed food. 
3. Instead of eating 3 meals, go for 4-5 meals but smaller portion 
4. Never starve yourself 
5. Exercise moderately to improve your bowels movement 
6. Avoid coffee, garlic, onions, carbonated drinks ( All my favourite T_T)


I’m not saying you can’t drink or eat your favourite food anymore, but you can avoid if you want to feel less bloated because it might be the reason you feel bloated. Also, there is also some food that helps to relieve your gas and make you feel better. 

WHAT SHOULD I EAT TO AVOID BLOATING?


For me, I personally love adding mint leaves or ginger to my tea/juice/water. It does helps to relieve my gas in my stomach . So try that!Also, remember to drink more water throughout the day to help your digestive system. 

Don’t force yourself to change your lifestyle because it won’t last long.

Meanwhile, aim for living a healthier life for yourself rather than blindly chasing a "body goal".
Be the healthier, stronger, happier version of yourself matter most.

Most importantly, enjoy what you are doing

ENJOY THE PROCESS <3
