Help! I lost weight but I’m so bloated

First For Women - - Nutrition -


I’ve dropped 15 pounds in the past month and was ex­cited to show off my weight loss at hol­i­day par­ties—but I’m so bloated that you can barely tell! What can I do?


To quickly flush ex­cess wa­ter weight and get your belly back to flat, we sug­gest sipping two to three cups of white tea daily. Re­searchers at the East­ern Vir­ginia Med­i­cal School in Nor­folk found that the unique com­bi­na­tion of wa­ter, caf­feine and polyphe­nols in this flo­ral and fruity brew sig­nal the hy­po­thal­a­mus to tamp down the pro­duc­tion of va­so­pressin—a hor­mone that pro­motes fluid re­ten­tion. As a re­sult, the kid­neys in­crease urine pro­duc­tion to quickly ex­pel body-wide puffi­ness. The ef­fect is so pow­er­ful that many women say sipping white tea helps them shed up to 4 pounds of “false fat” in as lit­tle as 48 hours.

An­other smart rea­son to sip the brew: White tea con­tains pow­er­ful an­tiox­i­dants shown to block the for­ma­tion and growth of new fat cells to help stave off weight gain.
