Fitness blogger’s honest ‘bloated stomach’ pics go viral

Fitness blogger Tiffany Brien has shared an image of her bloated stomach to prove that ‘we are not all what we seem on social media.’

The UK model took to Facebook, posting two images which were taken only 12 hours apart.

The first image show’s Tiffany with a bloated stomach just before bed and the second image shows Tiffany with a flat stomach the next morning once she wakes up.


“Reality check…. No I’m not 6 months pregnant. It’s just my food baby…These two photos are 12 hours apart, left before bed and right when I woke up…. I know right!” she wrote.

“We are not all what we seem on social media. I thought I would share a bad day with you to show you nobody is ‘perfect’ and it is ok to have an off day where your body just decides to not play ball.”

She the continues to reveal what she believes contributes to her bloating.

“Don’t worry girls, it happens to the best of us, all part and parcel of being a female! It is a delightful cocktail of lack of sleep, stress, hormones and food intolerances. A mixture for a whole lotta bloat.

“To make matters worse it seems to happen at incredibly inconvenient times… On a evening out for dinner in a lovely tight dress. I could be half way into my main course and I suddenly feel uncomfortable and now really unattractive with a big bloated belly!”

The post has since been shared more than 5,300 times and received thousands of comments from other women around the world, praising Tiffany for being so honest.
