The Flat-Belly Foods to Eat All Day Long
Dealing with bloat can be a year-round issue, even when you're not donning on a bikini. For those days when you feel sluggish, every little bit helps. Make every bite count by opting for foods that help flatten your stomach and make you feel lighter on your feet. Registered dietitian and Women's Health Contributing Editor Keri Glassman recommends eating whole, unprocessed foods in order to reset your intentions and your diet. "When you're eating whole real foods, the types of foods you should be eating on a regular basis, your body is doing a good job of cleansing itself," she explains. "For example, if you're eating lots of fruits and vegetables and you're getting a lot of fiber, your body is working to cleanse itself — your GI tract, your liver, your kidneys clean your body out."
Fresh produce tops Keri's list of foods that help you cleanse, but she recommends the following as excellent flat-belly foods for their high-fiber content and digestion-relieving properties. Read on for the list, as well as ways to incorporate them into your diet.
