    Snack up

    Bloating is the worst. What women do is that they rely too much on sugary drinks during those days while they should avoid them. Instead, just go for nuts, fruits, and some vegetables that you can have raw like carrots, beets etc. and whole grain cookies. If you wish to have something to drink, go for some chicken stalk.
