Don't drink through a straw, and avoid carbonated beverages. You will look and feel less bloated. I am used to drinking from a straw all day, but when I read this tip, I stopped, and I feel so much better.
Carbonated drinks (even water) makes you feel full, but also fills you with air!
Water-soluble fiber keeps Dieters and Diabetics Full
Water-soluble fiber is found in oats, Psyllium, nuts beans, lentils, barley and most fruits and vegetables. This type of fiber absorbs water in the digestive tract, which is what helps you feel full and slows your digestion. Keeps blood sugar level b y slowing the absorption carbs in the blood. I take a Equate fiber pill daily which I buy at Walmart...helps keep my blood sugar level. Add a fiber supplement to your diet and see the difference.
