Did you gain weight, or are you just experiencing some bloating?

Sometimes the scale reflects and upward motion, but is it really fat gain?

Bloating - aka water retention - happens for a variety of reasons:

- Too much sodium

- Hormone fluctuations

- Dehydration

- Food sensitivity

Bloating happens to everyone - not just to women and due to hormones.

If you ate late at night and went to sleep, your body spent the night digesting instead of fully resting, so you may wake up with a little pooch.

This is not actual fat gain - it's just bloating - so do not go restricting or over-exercising. Instead, stay hydrated and move as you normally would.

Beat the bloat! Here are a few things you can do if you're feeling bloated:

Fennel Tea

Herbal Tea

Carom seed water

Warm water with lemon

Water + apple cider vinegar + lemon juice + baking soda
