Control The Salt
Excessive intake of salt can cause your body to retain water and thus bloat it. So, for a couple of days, avoid salt in your meals as and when you go. Use other spices like pepper to season your food instead, and completely avoid processed food as they are high in salt content.
Go On A Detox
But before you do, remember a detox doesn't mean you starve yourself. If you are on a fruit and vegetable juice detox , make sure you have plenty of it through the day to make up for your calorie intake. And again, no packaged juices. The detox will work only if you have freshly pressed juices without added sugar.

Get Some Rest
Getting rest might seem impossible since you are back at work; but try. Make sure to hit the bed early for a few days, for all the running around during the festivities has surely got your body all tired and weary. Give your body the rest it needs.
Probiotics Are Good
You could also be bloated because the erratic eating habits during Diwali have left you with indigestion. To tackle this, take help from natural probiotics like yoghurt that help to increase the enzymes in your gut and aid with proper digestion.
Caffeine Is Not Good
Caffeinated drinks like coffee or flavoured sodas can actually worsen your Diwali bloating, not to mention the copious amounts of sugar sodas contain. If you need to drink something, then try sipping on unsweetened or lightly sweetened lemon water or green tea instead.
Have Plenty Of Water
Most importantly, have plenty of water without fail. Not having enough water makes your body retain water and bloats you up. So, have plenty of the wonder liquid and flush out all toxins from your body along with the nasty bloating.
Follow these effective steps to get rid all that Diwali bloating you hate so much and get back to your normal body in just a few days!
