I am currently on Zoladex and Letrozole for almost 2 and a half years. I have the bloated belly look and have been excercise go and dieting but I still have a very bloated looking belly. Is there any supplements or something any of you ladies have tried that has helped with this?

I have the same issue and also gained an enormous amount of weight for the first time in my life. I have always been a very healthy and conscientious eater - so this has nothing to do with that.. One diet I am following right now is to eat only within the same shortened time period every day (I am doing 8AM to 6PM). I recently read an article about this method. This has already started helping, and I hope to keep it up and get some relief from the bloating. It is really helping so far.
