So you have a big event coming up and you need to find easy ways to debloat.

Trust me, I have been there.

As a dedicated foodie, I have come to realise that making a couple of simple lifestyle changes can knock a couple of inches off my waist and hips before a big event.3

My tactics are simple, so here are easy ways to debloat before an event.

1. Ditch the Sodium

Okay, so it is near impossible to ditch sodium altogether.

However, many of us inadvertently add a truck load more than is necessary to our diets.

This results in our bodies clinging to water, which makes us bloated.

So pay attention to your salt intake and modify accordingly.

This is probably one of the more challenging easy ways to debloat before an event (conflicting info there, I know), as it involves checking packets before eating stuff.

2. Drink Lots of Water

I am terrible when it comes to drinking water.

I do drink all day, but it is mainly caffeine, soda, etc.

Your body clings onto water when your osmoreceptors detect that you aren't getting enough.2

This then makes you look bloated!

Drink loads, pee loads, and then feel the lovely de-bloatedness that comes with the process.

3. Kiss Goodbye to Carbonates

This always makes me sad.

I am like a diet coke addict, so kissing goodbye to carbonated drinks 24-48 hours before an event makes me feel a little lost.

However, it is a necessary debloating process.

With less gas, you are less bloated around your midriff, and you feel and look thinner.

Switch up your fizzy drinks for herbal teas instead.

4. Cut down Portions

Many of us overeat, myself included.

I've been a lot better with my portion control lately, but it took me a few attempts at reading motivational healthy eating books to realise I am not actually hungry half the time--I am bored.

Start cutting down portions by eating a quarter less than usual.

Every time you want to eat, consider whether it is a craving or hunger.

Eat slowly, and you should feel full faster.

This is all common sense, but so easy to overlook at the same time.
