Your belly can be bloated for many different reasons. They include food intolerance (such as an inability to digest gluten or lactose), a bacterial imbalance in your gut, and other digestive issues. To get rid of bloating, try to eliminate suspect foods from your diet temporarily to see if one of them is causing bloating; start eating more foods rich in fiber and fermented foods, drink more water, and consider taking a probiotic supplement.
5. Hormone belly
As we mentioned above, high cortisol causes you to gain unwanted pounds. Abdominal weight gain can also be caused by an underactive thyroid. Low levels of estrogen in women and testosterone in men can also make the belly grow. To get rid of hormone belly, have your levels of hormones checked if your doctor recommends it, eat foods that help keep your hormone levels stable, and exercise regularly.
