Thanksgiving holiday is among us and we are forever grateful. With delicious foods, enjoying time with family and watching our favorite football team play. We tend to over stuff ourselves during this time of year; pretty typical. However, with certain foods such as stuffing it tends to add extra pounds on the scale and causes extreme bloating and anxiety. One key ways to avoid bloating during the holidays or in general is staying hydrated with H2O (Water). Yes water is essential to the body, but food such as stuffing is compacted with a lot of moisture ingredients with little and limited water. By staying hydrated it helps you by eating less portions and help supply your body with the needed fluids to help pass some of the foods through your digestive system. Smaller portions sizes and increasing water intake would be your best friend this Thanksgiving.
