Do you ever have one of those days where you feel so bloated that you are convinced that you had all of a sudden put on 10 extra pounds? According to Dr Oz you need not panic, because that bloating could be just that—bloat, rather than belly fat.

“It’s your most common complaint―bloating. But today there’s a brand new book that’s going to change everything that you thought you knew about bloat and how to flush it out,” says Dr. Oz as he introduces special guest Robynne Chutka a gastroenterologist, founder of the Digestive Center for Women and author of the a belly bloat book titled “Gutbliss―A 10-Day Plan to Ban Bloat, Flush Toxins, and Dump Your Digestive Baggage.”

The Jeans Test: Is it bloating or is it fat?

One test for whether you are experiencing belly bloat or have just gained some extra belly fat is through a simple “jeans test.” To take the jeans test, just note whether or not you can fit into a specific pair of jeans in the morning each day when you wake up. Put the jeans away for the day and then later take that same pair of jeans and put it on 12 hours later. If you suffer from belly bloat, the jeans will be significantly tighter at night than they were in the morning. By the next morning the jeans should fit again; however, if not—then its fat gained.

I need to lose ten lbs in a week for my husbands bday!!! Help!! What can i do??
I have suffered many of years with gas issues and a lot of it. So bad that I had to be taken to the emergency room twice for it. I have almost passed out many times from it. I never passed out but I have collapsed, shaking in all parts of my body, sweating, and dizziness. The hospital told me the same thing the two times I went that I was consumed with gas. It's not bad like that no more but I still have issues with gas. I have issues with constipation as well, I get relief with coffee. I drink water but it doesn't always work unless I drink it constantly all day everyday. Gas is more of an issue than constipation. Gas issues have been going on for over 8 years. Any advice to help, would greatly appreciate it!
