Avoiding Foods That Make You Look & Feel Fat for Every Life Occasion – drcal.net
When planning for a fun get-together with friends everything goes through your mind, from your wardrobe to jewelry and make-up. What many of us don’t plan for, however, is our meals. Eating the wrong foods before an event can sabotage your beauty plan. Certain foods can give your gut an instant bloat that looks and feels awful. However, there is a solution to this dilemma. Instead of skipping dinner to squeeze into your LBD or grabbing bagels for a quick morning bite, there are belly bloat busters. Here are some suggestions for how to avoid the bloat for your big night out, courtesy of Dr. Christopher Calapai, D.O. is an Osteopathic Physician board certified in family medicine and anti-aging medicine.
Tips for How to Beat the Belly Bloat:
For a girl’s night out: Don’t be afraid to have a large meal beforehand (large meaning more than just a PB&J). If you are planning for an active night, whether dancing, bowling or party hopping, you will need the fuel. Dr. Calapai has created the perfect meal for this situation:
– Protein – 4 oz (I love grilled tofu seasoned with garlic salt and curry)
– 1/2 cup cooked brown rice and lentils
– 1 cup steamed string beans
This combo will fill you up without weighing you down, and will give you the energy you need to dance the night away!
