The dreaded belly. It’s bloated. Maybe it feels sore. Maybe it’s puffy. You’ve worked your butt off to try get rid of it, you’ve tried eating less, but somehow it’s still there. Maybe you’ve resigned yourself to the fact that it will always be there. Or maybe you’re still in the gym or paving the pavement trying to burn enough calories to get rid of it?


I’m here to tell you that things don’t need to be this way. 

A bloated belly is your body’s way of telling you that something is up. And most often it’s related to stress, lifestyle or something that you’re eating that’s upsetting it. Or a combination of all 3!

Exercising more is not going to get rid of it. In fact, it may make things worse because exercise is a form of stress and when you're under chronic stress, your body holds onto weight around your belly.

This is how we were designed to survive through stressful times! Your belly is also your emotional brain and is therefore a direct reflection of how you feel within.

If you’re fueling yourself with negative self talk, beating yourself up for not exercising or feeling guilty for what you’ve eaten, your belly will express that.

I know because I've been there

I spent years feeling frustrated and upset because of my bloated belly. I was running up to 70km (43 miles) per week and doing high intensity workouts as well as hundreds of abs every day but nothing worked. I tried eating less and counting calories, cutting out whole food groups, not eating any fat but my belly kept getting bloated no matter how hard I tried.


But now things are different

I exercise considerably less but I focus on low impact workouts that create strength & length without stressing out the body. I exercise because I want to & I find it easy to be consistent with my workouts because they’re fun & make me feel great! I also know what triggers my bloating and have adapted my diet & lifestyle accordingly.
