1. Eat Bananas:
Bananas are rich in potassium, a nutrient that helps regulate fluids in the body, bringing proper balance to flatten the belly and prevent bloating.
2. Chew Your Meals Slowly and Thoroughly:
Digestion begins in the mouth, and with proper chewing you can not only improve your digestion, but also prevent yourself from taking in excess air, which can lead to uncomfortable gas and bloating. Also, avoid chewing gum and using straws to drink beverages, because inhaling excess air causes the same damage to your body.
3. Make Friends With Water and Tea (Only):
Avoiding all kinds of soda not only helps weight loss, but is also seriously unhealthy for you. Drinking water or teas like—green, chamomile or ginger tea can make you burn fat around the waist and ensure better sleep. Ginger, traditionally used to soothe stomach, blocks enzymes in the body that promote bloating.
4. Eat an Early Dinner:
Eating post 8pm makes sure you ingest the MOST calories and carry the most body fat. The simple method to stop mass fat from storing in the body is to stop eating three hours before you hit the sack. Then, while you're sound asleep, your body is programmed to burn fat.
5. Avoid Certain Vegetables:
Even though some veggies are filled with healthy nutrients, these are also contain sneaky belly bloaters. Broccoli, corn, white onions, cauliflower and button mushrooms are some examples of those vegetables.
6. Add Some Dark Chocolate to Your Diet:
When cocoa hits the digestive juices of your belly, it is absorbed by the good gut-bugs, causing a split into anti-inflammatory compounds. So, that way, your belly doesn't bloat.
7. Take a Bath With Epsom Salt:
Adding two cups of Epsom salt into your tub or bucket may help deflate your belly—by pulling excess water out of it. This trick can stop your body from dehydrating, if done once a week.
8. Avoid Fatty Foods:
All the fat-rich foods we love from our favourite fast food joints have to stop because they add an insane amount of saturated and trans fats to your body, which we all know is no good when you're trying to lose weight.
9. Bring in Some Good Bacteria:
To keep the fat-generating compounds at bay, you need to add healthy bacteria into your diet. Add probiotic supplements to your weekly food plan.
10. Start and End Your Day Right:
A high-protein breakfast will prevent you from over-eating in the afternoon and reaching for sugar, caffeine or carbs for a quick boost. Quell that thirst by eating multiple meals a day. Three balanced meals – a balance of carbs, proteins, roughage and healthy liquids is a good way to coax your system into functioning properly. Ending your day by heading outside for a 15-minute stroll is a great way to get things moving again, when you're feeling bloated and heavy.
