As we start aging, our body starts losing its ability to move excess fluid from the body. Reducing salt intake helps in decreasing this bloating. Thus, its important to stay away from prepackaged meals, fried snacks, breads, soups which are high in sodium.
Substitute With Healthy Foods
Start substituting what you eat everyday and make healthy choices. You can start your day with a bowl of oatmeal with low fat milk. This can be a better choice than sandwiches, artificial fruit juices and even cakes. Instead of munching on your regular deep fried snacks, you can substitute them with sweet potato fries. It is also a good option to substitute your milk chocolate bar with healthy nuts bars.
