20 Foods That Banish Bloat Once and for All

If you’re looking for foods to get rid of bloating and gas, there is a variety of natural remedies that awaits you in the grocery store. To help keep your belly bloat at bay, nutritionists recommends the following 20 foods:

 

CELERY

Since it's packed with water, celery helps your body flush out extra liquids, which makes your stomach appear flatter.

 

TOMATOES

These super low-calorie fruits are rich in potassium, which helps your body dismiss belly-bloating sodium. 

 

Ginger 

Ginger has anti-inflammatory properties and has been proven to help with "gastric emptying." Meaning, it moves things along so you don't stay ultra-constipated...and bloated.

 

EAT FRUITS WITH THE SKIN

Fresh berries and fruits that have a skin (apples, pears, etc.) are great for banishing bloat where the largest amount of fiber resides.

 

ARTICHOKES

A medium-size one has 7 grams of fiber — almost 30 percent of your recommended daily allowance — to help your digestive system chug along properly.

 

CANTALOUPE

This orange melon is full of anti-bloating potassium, low in calories, and has a high water content, so you can get away with eating a lot of it.

 

EAT MORE AVOCADO

Spread it on toast, or add it to your salad.
No matter how you choose to eat avocado, you'll be getting a healthy dose of monounsaturated fat.

 

REPLACE WHITE RICE FOR BROWN

Because it's a complex carb, brown rice takes longer to digest, which means that it'll keep you full and won't make your stomach stick out.

EAT MORE OATMEAL

Oatmeal is rich in fiber, quick to prepare, and easy to take on the run. Plus, it won't make you want to suck in your stomach all morning. Just make sure you're not overloading yours with sugar and you'll have a solid start to the day.

 

LETTUCE

Lettuce is filled with important nutrients that help reduce bloating, and plenty of fiber to keep you full.

YOGURT

It's filled with good bacteria that helps promote gut health and makes your digestive tract run more smoothly. As a result, you'll be less prone to gas and bloating.

 

CUCUMBERS

These crunchy veggies have a few calories and are natural diuretics, meaning they help flush out excess water weight.

 

EGGPLANT

This veggie is very low in sodium and high in water, so it helps banish bloat.

 

ALMONDS

Almonds are loaded with protein, which makes them a great afternoon snack. Just be sure to stick with raw almonds.

 

FENNEL

Because fennel relaxes GI spasms after eating, you can prevent the gas and bloating you'd typically have after a heavy meal. Either chew on the seed or make fennel tea.

DARK CHOCOLATE

You probably didn't expect to see dark chocolate on this list, but as long as it's made up of at least 70% cacao, it's full of fiber and polyphenols that can help flatten your tummy. But don't eat too much; stick to a square or two per day.

KIWI

Kiwis aren't just a delicious snack, they're also great for your digestive system aside from helping with bloat due to their high potassium levels.

 

PINEAPPLE

Everyone loves pineapple, but did you know it's been used for centuries to treat indigestion and reduce inflammation, making it an incredibly tasty way to get rid of bloating.

 

Bananas

Bananas are rich in potassium which can help to offset the effects of bloat caused by salty indulgences. Bananas are also a good source of prebiotic fiber, which helps to increase the good bacteria in your gut and improve digestion.

 

Watermelon

Watermelon is a good diuretic and full of water that can help you to flush out excess fluids.
