Help Clients Beat Bloat and Get a Trimmer Tummy

Abdomen pressure from bloating is a source of high discomfort for people of all ages and circumstances, and it can lead to low energy and reluctance to exercise or stay on track with a diet. Therefore, it’s important to help your clients beat bloating to really obtain the results they want and an overall healthier, happier life.

To start, it’s good to identify whether the ailment is bloating or another related issue. Ask these questions to identify the condition:

    1. Do symptoms include constipation, diarrhea, and/or gas? If so, your client may have Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). It’s estimated that 15% of Americans suffer from this ailment which affects the large intestine. Medical professionals have ways to treat the symptoms, but you can also suggest a food approach to eliminate symptoms before they begin. Some carbs are poorly digested in the small intestine and people with IBS are sensitive to them. Foods to suggest your client to avoid include: wheat crackers, beans, asparagus, honey, cottage cheese, milk, cashews, and cauliflower.
    2. Do you also experience abdominal pains or tenderness, fever, chills, loss of appetite, and/or nausea? In this case, it could be a case of Diverticulosis which stems from eating too much processed foods and not enough fiber. As many as 1 in 10 Americans over age 40 and approximately half over age 60 have Diverticulosis. A licensed doctor should be sought for medical recommendations.
    3. Does your stomach simply feel tight, hard, or extended? This feeling derives from general bloating and individuals can fix the problem with a diet of high-protein and potassium-rich picks. High protein items act as a natural diuretic to release excess water from the body. Potassium options (like spinach and avocado) flush out sodium, a key culprit in retaining too much water. A few foods to avoid in the fight against bloating include: salty foods (especially dressings and sauces), alcohol, items containing sorbitol (in sugar-free and sugarless foods/gum), processed meat, and carbonated beverages.

It’s possible that clients who are trying hard to lose weight are being held back by abdominal comfort due to bloating. Help educate them, both to keep them comfortable and to establish authority in the field. You might also recommend products that include SuperCitriMax® to increase the success of their weight loss goals.
