If you're looking for bloat I guess you mean large packages that are
worth removing. Try this (all one line):

$ rpm -qa --qf '%{SIZE} %{NAME}-%{VERSION}-%{RELEASE}\n' | sort -rn >

The resulting file bloat.txt will be a list of all of your RPM packages,
sorted by the amount of disk space they use, biggest at the top. Look
down that list for packages you don't use and "rpm -e" them. If you're
not sure what a package is, try "rpm -qi packagename" to find out. If
another package has a dependency on the one you're trying to remove, rpm
will tell you about it.
