What’s Causing My Abdominal Bloating and Shortness of Breath

What’s causing my abdominal bloating and shortness of breath?

When you have a flat stomach, it causes your body to store fat instead of burning energy like normal. When you eat something heavy, such as meat or potatoes, your stomach expands. You may feel full immediately after eating these foods because your stomach has expanded so much. Your body will need to digest the food inside your body before it can burn off the stored calories from the food. If you don’t eat anything else for several hours, your body will start storing fat again.

Your body will not absorb all the nutrients in the food if it doesn’t have enough room to do so. So what happens is that your body stores some of the excess calories and burns them later as heat rather than using them to power up its metabolism. You might think that you are losing weight, but really you aren’t!

The only way to lose weight is to reduce your calorie intake. You can do this by cutting down on the amount of food you eat or increasing your activity level. Both methods will result in a loss of fat mass.

Can I get rid of my bloating?

You cannot eliminate bloating completely, but there are ways to manage it. One method is to drink plenty of water during meals and snacks. This will help make sure that you are not dehydrated. The more water you have in your body, the more likely your body is to flush out the byproducts of the digestive process. Some people drink cranberry juice to prevent bloating because it helps keep bacteria from adhering to the inside walls of the intestines.

Will drinking alcohol cause bloating?

Alcohol will not directly cause bloating. It’s true that alcohol contains a lot of empty calories.
