7 Tips for Reducing Post-Party Bloat
Even though Bravo TV star Bethenny Frankel is all about eating healthy, she has experienced a bad food hangover — that haze the morning after an elaborate dinner party or a night with friends spent indulging in too many favorite foods. In her Health.com Ask Bethenny column, the former Real Housewife suggests whipping up a big pot of vegetable soup to help slim down.
From two too many margaritas and chips with guacamole to eating too much steak with béarnaise, party favorites like these often cause not-so-fun bloat the next day. Once called "The Body," supermodel Heidi Klum knows how to take care of her frame — she de-bloats with an Epsom salt-rich bath.
But don't let a food hangover stop you from throwing a good party. Follow our helpful (and effective) tips to help you de-puff and feel better. (And luckily our guide doesn’t involve cutting out the margaritas or fries.) Some advice you may already be taking is grabbing that Venti iced coffee — a cup of joe will not only perk you up, but it also acts as a diuretic, helping to flush out excess fluids from your tissues. Remember that there's nothing wrong with indulging now and then, just make like Britney Spears and put down the soda; pick up some water instead.
