Avoid These Foods
Being overweight or having weak abs isn't the only issue causing your pudgy tummy. If you're having digestive issues, a bloated belly can also make you look plumper than you are. It helps to avoid foods that are known to cause bloating like dairy products and high-fat and high-sodium items. Skip chewing gum since it causes you to swallow air, and you'll also want to turn away carbonated beverages such as seltzer and beer since they release carbon dioxide, which can translate to bloat. For instant relief from bloating, try this yoga sequence.
