Feeling down about that bulge in your belly? If you’ve been eating healthy and exercising regularly but still have a little gut, you may just be experiencing a little belly bloat. Here’s a few suggestions to help deflate your midsection and feel like yourself again:

1. Drink some peppermint tea.

Peppermint is great for soothing churning stomachs and easing gas pains. Its essential oil contains menthol, which has an antispasmodic effect of the smooth muscle of the digestive track.

2. Go ahead and “pass the gas.”

Yep, sounds gross, but holding in gas will only make your stomach swell more. Just be considerate where and when you decide to “let loose.”
