8 Foods To A Flatter Stomach

1. Bananas

Potassium—like the amount found in a medium-size banana—works wonders when it comes to helping your body get rid of excess water weight.

2. Lemons

Squeezing a teaspoon of lemon juice into a glass of water—especially if it’s warm—can help jump-start your gastrointestinal tract so that food has an easier time passing through your system..

3. Olive Oil

This anti-inflammatory will flatten your belly and protect against high cholesterol. But heads up: It’s more effective if you use it for things like salad dressing or sauteing vegetables versus bread dipping.

4. Cucumbers

This hydrating veggie is a natural diuretic, which makes it great for removing water weight, a factor in belly bloat.

5. Dark Chocolate

Good news: In moderation, it’s a natural appetite suppressant that also stimulates metabolism and reduces stress.

6. Avocados

The good-for-you fats in this fruit help reduce inflammation and prevent the blood sugar spikes that cause your body to store calories at your waistline

7. Spinach

A healthy diet is all about the leafy greens, but spinach in particular has so many antioxidants—like vitamins A, C, E and K,all of which target belly fat.

8. Asparagus

Asparagus works as a diuretic, clearing your belly of excess water weight.
