The worst feeling ever is that of being bloated. Whether you're about to hit the beach, go on a hot date, or are just feeling a little extra puffy around the waistline, sometimes you just want to get a little relief. Today on the blog, we've got a list of foods that will help you banish that bloat... check them out right here!
Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple Cider Vinegar can do practically everything. Because it helps to balance levels of stomach acid, it can help to reduce bloating as well. Try taking a shot of ACV the morning before you have to fit into a tight dress. We know... eek! ACV shots?...but your tummy will thank you!
The polyphenols in lemons help to reduce bloating by reducing inflammation in your digestive tract. Try squirting some lemon on your salad, or infusing a glass of cold water or hot tea with some lemon next time you need to reach for a drink.
The potassium in carrots helps ward off bloating. It produces a slight diuretic effect, allowing your body to flush itself out. That means your body will be looking (and feeling), its best for your next important occasion!
Staying hydrated is an important way to fend off belly bloat, but green tea especially helps to reduce inflammation in the digestive track and elsewhere. This will help you to look and feel less bloated.
Eggs taste as great as they are for you. And they have the added benefit of preventing bloat as well! Their high protein content will make sure that your body isn't ballooning like it would when you consume carbs or dairy.
Olive oil is full of omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants that are anti-inflammatory, which will help your stomach look its flattest. The best way to consume olive oil? Drizzled on top of eggs, another bloat-busting food!
Oatmeal has a prebiotic effect on our stomach, which allows healthy gut bacteria to thrive. When there are ideal levels of stomach bacteria, your belly bloat won't appear as it would if you are having bacterial problems in your digestive tract.
