Limit How Much Sodium You Eat
"One of the most common contributors to bloating is sodium," said registered dietitian Rachel Fine, MS, RD, CDN, owner of To the Pointe Nutrition. That's because it makes your body retain water. She suggested opting for minimally-processed packaged foods that are low in sodium (less than five percent of your daily value).
"I usually recommend about 2,300 milligrams of sodium daily but that is easily met in two tablespoons of soy sauce," added registered dietitian Amy Shapiro MS, RD, CDN of Daily Harvest. "Enjoy more whole foods and plants which are naturally lower in sodium and high in water and potassium to balance it out," Amy said. Rachel agreed and said that increasing your intake of fresh fruits and veggies will help to counteract the excess sodium levels.
