Bloating, Dr Kiran says, is because of there is a lot of salt that we consume while eating out regularly. Flight food can especially cause bloating, since it has a lot of sodium in it. To avoid bloating when you are travelling, you can either avoid salt on your flight, or you can opt for not consuming salt after 8 pm. You can opt for fruits or chia seeds soaked in almond milk and some fruits after 8 pm in case you feel hungry. This will help you feel fresh and healthy the next day.
Dr Kiran signs off from her post by giving an interesting hack which can help in preventing digestive issues while travelling. For people who want to de-bloat fast, they can take asparagus in the form of tea. Asparagus is a natural diuretic. Make asparagus your dinner if you want to avoid bloating.
