Dizziness, stomach bloating, eating healthier, no weight gain. Negative pregnancy test. Causes for symptoms?

Im 20 years old, recently I have been experiencing a lot of dizziness when I get up and also extreme bloating . Its been about 8 days since my bloating began I just woke up one morning and had this humongous stomach, I thought maybe I was pregnant (the last time I had sex was with my boyfriend about 6-7 weeks ago, Im no longer on birth control we did use protection) but I took a test and it came out negative. The bloating is in my lower pelvic area, and it s really hard. I work out about 5 days a week i try to eat as healthy as possible so I m just really worried as to why I have this crazy belly right now, I had an almost flat stomach and a 4 pack coming in and all of a sudden this bloating occurred and it s not from eating more or gaining weight because I ve actually been eating healthier and eating less than before.

Sometimes bloating can occur as a part of premenstrual syndrome as well. This can last for upto 2 weeks. To be able to say that this is the definitive cause in your case, I would need to know when was your last menstrual period and how long are your cycles.
Till then, I would suggest the following:
a. Have plenty of water
b. Steer clear of beans, lentils, cabbage, brussel sprouts, onions, carrots, apricots, and prunes
c. Reduce sugar and salt intake. This is especially useful for bloating and swelling of the hands and feet, breast tenderness, and dizziness. Increase foods rich in potassium, such as fish, beans, and broccoli.
d. Eat small, frequent meals to help stabilize blood sugar.
e. Eliminate caffeine and alcohol
f. Increase intake of fruits, vegetables, beans, nuts, seeds, and fish.
g. Decrease intake of fatty foods and red meat

Hope this helps.
Awaiting your reply.
