Hi all

Does anyone else suffer with bloating in peri. I constantly feel like I need the loo and feel as if I have eaten loads when I haven't. I have a tyre of weight round my middle that never seems to go down. Any advice would be great and also if there are any supplements that can help.

    Hi Helen,

    yes I do and it drives me nuts! Even when I really think I must have gained 5kg I hop on the weighing scales and I haven't gained, but if feel like I cannot wear close fitting clothes and I really feel heavy and bloated, and can't seem to "suck it in" like I used to. It's depressing. 

    I have found although, that cutting way back on salt, red meat and also drinking a big glass of water every hour helps shift excess fluid, which I feel is the cause of this heavy bloated feeling around my waist. I also have started replacing my extra coffee intakes for tea. It does seem to help. 

    Good luck, let us know how you go!
