There are various factors that contribute to you stepping out dressed to the 9’s or staying home in your piggy slippers. Here are some confidence-boosting bites:

De-Puff

Herbal Tea: Never fart on a first date. Well, aside from that, being gassy can make you feel and look bloated. Herbs like Chamomile, spearmint and peppermint can reduce gas in the body.

Chicken

Garlic

Cucumbers

Apples
