    Maybe drink some more water and keep drinking the tea it will help and if you can stomach it perhaps some fenel tea or some chamomile tea(i know they both kinda taste like socks but very good for you)

    Also check how much salt your having and try and reduce and that will help beat the bloat as it were

    I look pregnant on reds! Mind you, only day 1 back on track so think it might have been my week off plan that's the cause!

    Anyway, peppermint is lush, what about trying some free soups?!

    And thanks for the star day reminder guys - or I would have forgotten!! x

    Are you eating alot of red meat? I can't eat too much as I end up feeling really bloated. If so you might be better trying more variety of fish etc

    It could be the butternut squash - it really bloats me when i eat it. It's very high in fibre.

    Hi there dehydration can cause bloating! Not many of us realise this, drink lots of water, herbal tea etc and should really help!

    Couldn't agree more! I've been having major bloating/water retention problems lately (time of life ;)) and so on recommendation from this forum, I've upped my water intake this week and its really helped! Also, a better weight loss for me too so it does work......
