Overeating and fatty foods can cause bloated belly. And this is an issue among women, especially when they want to wear a nice dress.
However, there is a list of things you can do or avoid in order not to have bloated belly:

- Drink 8 glasses of water each day – it will help waste flush out of your body. Coffee can also help. It adds bonus of contracting your colon and will help you to go.
- Drink peppermint tea – it alleviates gas by relaxing the digestive tract and boosting normal peristalsis.
