Hey

I am back with another list of foods :). Presenting to you the list of Best Foods for Flat Belly ! Since the list is long, I will break it into parts.

Women have a tendency to put on weight around belly. However, water retention and bloating are other devils which cause tummy to swell and look bigger. These foods help to shrink belly :). Without any delay , here it goes –

Papaya

Papaya is known to help digestion. It helps the break down of food faster and relieving bloating. I generally have papaya in the evening, it fills the stomach , so my night meal can be light.

Pineapple

Pineapple is rich in fructose , hence helpful for moments when you crave for sweet. It also helps in settling stomach.

I always add black pepper to curd , salad because it’s  a fantastic way to keep away bloating. It helps in digestion too.

Green tea is known for its anti-oxidants. It can be safely taken 3-4 times a day. It flushes excess fluids and reduces bloating and water retention. It increases metabolism and helps fat burning. Highly recommended by doctors and nutritionists!

Tomatoes

Did you know that Tomato is a fruit and we use it in our tadka’s for all veggies 😀 ? Tomatoes are full of antioxidants and reduce water retention in body.

Garlic

Many of us hate Garlic’s smell 😛 . Garlic is rich in anti-oxidants and allicin. Allicin helps to kill many harmful bacteria and viruses in our body. This is one reason why Indian curries do contain garlic.

Cucumber has similar slimming properties. It eases water retention and bloating in the body.
