Don’t Fear The Christmas Bloat – Instagram Fitness Model Shows Why A Festive Belly Is Nothing To Be Ashamed Of

  • Christmas is coming and man of you may be fearing the post festive dinner bloating, after gorging on your Muscle Food Christmas Hamper!

  • But you really shouldn’t. We all love to indulge at Christmas, and you should not feel bad for doing so.

  • Fitness blogger and owner of incredible abs Kelsey Wells proved this with a bloated picture, inspiring people to know that this is completely normal and nothing to be ashamed about.

Christmas day is fast approaching – the time to indulge your taste buds with a mouth-watering festive meal, open some presents and fall asleep in front of the telly.

But there is one thing that many fitness-focussed people will fear, and that is the post-dinner bloat. Consuming calories by the bucket-full can lead to a bit of a belly, but you really have nothing to be ashamed about!

Don’t ever feel bad for it. Be proud of the bloat – it means you loved your dinner, as Kelsey Wells proved with her Instagram post.

Inspiring body confidence, she shows two side-by-side photos – one normal and one after a few extra treats”.

As the full caption goes:

“Remember those extra treats I mentioned?😂 I try to indulge in moderation, but let's be honest I'm human and I love food and that doesn't always happen.😬 // I wanted to post this because I have received more than a few questions lately such as "how do you never look bloated?", "how do you never get zits?", and "how do you not have stretch marks?", ect. First, I definitely do get bloated (☝🏼), I definitely have occasional breakouts (hello hormones), and I actually do have stretch marks (though they have faded). I could give you tips and tricks on how to fight bloating and zits and stretch marks, but I think it's more important for everyone to realize that these things are totally normal! And nothing to be ashamed of or embarrassed about. Instagram is often a highlight reel of sorts, and there is nothing wrong with focusing on the positive! But it's so important to keep it real and remember that most the images you see while scrolling (including mine) are people's "best foot forward". Of course I want to take photos in good lighting and show my best angles, but I never want that to be misconstrued as saying I don't have bad ones or never look bloated. EVERYONE is human. Everyone is beautiful. The key is to spend less time picking ourselves apart and more time seeing how beautiful, amazing, and miraculous our bodies are -- bloating, zits, stretch marks, and all.”
