Here’s an all natural trick for getting rid of bloating during your TOM. Squeeze half of a lemon into a boiling mug of water then throw the half of lemon right into it. Let your drink sit until it's still hot, but comfortable to drink. Drink your hot lemon water and the extra water you are carrying will be flushed out of you.
I hated feeling very hungry, gobbling up my food and then still feeling hungry and unsatisfied when finished. I read an article about chewing food properly and decided to try it. I eat a spoonful of food and set down my fork/spoon until I am done eating that portion. Then I go on to the next one. Our saliva has various enzymes that break down our food making it easier for our digestive system to process that food. (Don't forget your water).
