There is nothing that can make you more uncomfortable than feeling puffy. Thankfully there are some foods that can help you deflate naturally. 

Since bloating can be caused by several factors including water retention and digestive issues, it is very important to maintain a healthy , clean diet during those harsh days.

I highly recommend drinking apple cider vinegar and water first thing in the morning. Apple cider vinegar works as a detox and will help to break down fats, and improves bowel workings. It also slows the digestion of starch which is the cause in blood sugar spikes after meals.
