Are You Feeling Excessively Bloated At The Moment

Bloating is so uncomfortable and can even feel so bad that it actually hurts.  You know that feeling when you have overeaten on a really special occasion like Christmas or maybe it’s just because it is a Saturday night!  It makes your stomach look so much bigger and feels so uncomfortable.   This blog will give you 3 simple things you can do right now to reduce that feeling and get you back on track, these 3 simple but very effective things that will help you to feel better as well as improving your immunity and health.


Stop talking!

At difficult times we all #emotionaleat,  in fact, emotional eating is one of nurturing and loving ourselves.  Eating with care and really enjoying what you are eating will hit the dopamine receptors in the brain and make you feel good.  The other benefit of taking your time is that you can taste the flavours of the food.  You will feel more satiated.

Don’t miss Improve your immunity

Slow eating and not talking whilst eating, be fully involved with what you are enjoying has a psychological effect, and a physiological one.  Eating with discernment and awareness will stimulate your digestive system as well as increasing the surface area of your food, which means it can then be broken down more easily. Food that isn’t broken down properly will cause gas and discomfort.

Chewing your food better will reduce the amount of air you swallow when eating and which is another cause of bloating.   Therefore in a mouthful, stop talking whilst enjoying your food  and enjoy tasting what you are eating.


Drink more water

Ensure that you are adequately hydrated so that your digestive juices can flow more readily.  If your stomach acid and digestive enzymes are working well you will break down your food more effectively and feel less full and bloated.  Have you joined my water challenge?

You’ve noticed I am sure that when you are highly stressed you forget to eat, it isn’t a priority.  A client called it the “Divorce Diet”

Stress produces the hormone cortisol in your body and produces adrenalin both of these hormones stop you from digesting your food, in case you need it to run away from a scary predator.  It is often called ‘cortisol belly’ or stress belly, have you heard of that one?

In addition, when you are highly stressed you are not getting the nutrients from your food.   Because in order to get the most nutrients and really digest your food, you need to be in ‘rest and digest’ mode and not ‘fight or flight’. If you’re stressed, anxious, or concentrating hard on something else your body will not think of digestion as a priority.  Your body needs you to consciously work alongside it.

Are you a stress bunny?  Are you suffering from overwhelm and overwrought with thoughts that keep going round in your mind, perhaps you are aware that this is affecting your health?  Then talking to someone you trust is an effective tool for mastering your thoughts, improving your confidence.   Knowing you are not on your own helps enormously.  Sometimes it is your bestie and other times it can be a stranger.

Reach out has never been easier.  I have been an advocate of online coaching for years.  The anonymity of not knowing your everyday life with the added benefit of feeling more relaxed because you are in your own surroundings makes online coaching one of the fastest-growing industry, going online is the new proactive life experience that will enhance and benefit your mental and physical health. Not sure if you are eating energy-zapping food, great, then  Book some time for you x

What brought you on board with Get Gorgeous? What inspired you to connect with me and come on board Get Gorgeous

“I was was missing something in my life.  I was not confident and  I just felt really empty. I followed you on your Pilates, I followed some of your blogs, and it’s just literally an email came in one day and said, why don’t we have a chat? And I just reached out, and from that very first conversation, I felt comfortable talking to you.”

So, from that position that you were in, what was it, was it seven, eight months ago, how are you feeling now, what is the transformation that you’ve seen in yourself?

“Everything’s changed. My life has completely changed,  I have just found the person that I want to be, and it’s not about creating myself, it’s just about being confident to be the person you want to be. I used to think everybody was judging me.

And now, you’re comfortable being yourself?

“I love being myself. I love the fact I can look in a mirror, and like, like myself. You have no idea, how powerful that has been.  The whole of my adult life, there are a handful of photographs of me, because I would not let anyone take my photograph, I didn’t like my looks, I was very detrimental about myself, and now, I will go out without makeup, I will have my hair into tousled, because it doesn’t need to be perfect. Because I’m not perfect, I’m so grateful for how I look, but I’m more grateful for how I feel”

You stepped into yourself and you are confident. And how has that affected your business?

“Oh my God, my business is flying. Flying. I have gone from being, that little girl behind the desk, who was too scared to come out from the desk, who was quite happy to shout and demand and push, because, that’s how you run a business, of course that’s how you run a business, isn’t it?

And the reality of it is, no, you don’t. You open yourself up. Opening yourself up and  sometimes, people look and don’t quite like you, I actually don’t worry about that any more, because, that’s about them, that’s not about me, I love how I can connect, especially how I can connect with other women. Never had that in my life. Never, always surrounded myself with masculinity, I now crave female contact. I am networking, something that I have never done.

And you’re speaking, as well. You’re speaking onstage, aren’t you?



“I am and that is so out of my comfort zone, I love the fact that I push myself out of that comfort zone, and I do that, and what I get back from it, is also my true self and I speak from the heart, because that is massive, I love that, and I love how it makes me feel.”

Good, that’s superb, am I right in thinking that you had a background with Slimming World and you were a leader, is that right?

Well,I’ve done Slimming World for two years, I’ve lost four stone, which was the start. 

But it didn’t help me with not liking myself very much and then I got to a point where I was thinking to myself: How can you tell yourself, you can have 15 sins a day? What is that  you’re saying to yourself? 15 sins, sins, the word sins.

I didn’t understand any nutrition, and it was the fact that I really wanted to understand more about how my body worked, what I ate, fuelled it, being told, yeah, you can eat endless low-fat things, and all of those things, and of course, now it’s coming out, isn’t it all those sugar in low fat things. It’s an absolute eye-opener, starting this journey. Opening my mind to learning about nutrition and just educating, educating myself.

I understand what it all does, it’s not about restriction, it’s about education.

Excellent. Brilliant. Inspiring words. Thank you so much, Sandra.

“No, thank you. As you know, my famous words are, everybody needs Adele in their live, So grateful you came into my life, so thank you.”
