If you are a skinny person by nature, but you just can't seem to shake that belly off, then no worries, you're not the only one.
Many women are struggling with their belly, even though every other part of their body seems to be skinny. But this is not due to obesity or fat. The belly can be due to so many things that you might not even know you're doing wrong.
Here are some of the reasons you might have a bloated belly:
1. Belly Caused By Alcohol
If you drink too much alcohol, don't wonder why you have a belly. Many alcohol drinkers are skinny because the alcohol raises your blood flow, but they do have a belly because alcohol also bloats.
The best thing in this scenario would be to just stop drinking alcohol altogether, or, worst-case scenario, drink less.
2. Belly Caused By Pregnancy
This belly is important in the life of every mother because she bore her child there, but it can be really stubborn to remove. This can only be done with proper exercises, yoga, but try consulting your doctor before you go and do one of these things because your baby's health is what matters most after all.
3. Belly Caused By Stress
Stress makes a wreck of your body, emotionally and physically. Your mind is not the only one suffering from stress. Stress can lead to overeating, sometimes even unconsciously. Now you realize where your belly might be coming from? You need to include at least some kind of exercise into your daily routine and cut out all the junk and oily food that we tend to subject our bodies to.
4. Belly Caused By Hormones
Sometimes having a belly is really not because you're doing something wrong. Maybe your body is doing something wrong and you have a hormonal imbalance. Either way, what you should do if your belly is really persistent and you're sure it's nothing else - go see a doctor and check your hormones.
5. Belly Caused By Gas
Having a bloated belly by gas is uncomfortable and also really bad for your health as it can lead to ulcers or even stomach cancer. The best way to avoid this is to not eat foods that make you gassy. Some of them include unhealthy and oily food (fast food) and stick to healthier options.
