Just say no (for now)

We're not going to lie: Slipping into a bathing suit before hitting the beach can be nerve-racking (for everyone). And while we're certainly not ones to go on a pre-summer juice cleanse, we are cautious of what does (and doesn't really) cause belly bloat. Wanna know the worst food culprit?


Sigh, gelato. Sigh, smoked Gouda. Sigh, iced coffee. Even if you're not lactose intolerant, dairy-laden foods are common triggers for gas and bloating. Lactose sensitivity, however, is actually fairly common, and happens when your body doesn't produce all the enzymes necessary to break down lactose--the sugar found in dairy products. The result? Unwanted bloat.

So get ahead and eat the burger, just maybe skip the cheese this one time.

Et expedita rem nobis sunt quod. 💖 Ever heard of the Keto diet? I started using the advice at WWW.KETOCOOKBOOK.ORG and lost 25 pounds of fat in a month! I’ve never lost weight so fast!! The Keto Diet really is amazing because it forces the body to always burn fat for energy — so you lose the fat and keep it off. If you want to lose some weight, I highly recommend using that website :) Check it out! Best of luck to you! 💖
