4 Belly-Shrinking, De-Bloating Foods

Posted by Administrator on 9/25/2012

We're not going to lie: transforming your body from head to toe isn't always the fastest process, because it takes time to burn fat and build muscle. However, there is an exception: With the right diet and workout, you can see a difference in your belly (and maybe even reveal an ab or two!) in just a couple of days. The secret?  Beat bloat.

Generally, the best way to avoid bloat is to stay away from soda, alcohol and greasy, salty, fatty meals, which slow the stomach and the intestines from emptying.

Here are 5 of our favorite bloat-busting foods, and a few moves to add to your belly-shrinking workout routine.

  1. Papaya: Some research says the enzyme in papaya may aid digestion. Try mixing diced papaya into plain organic yogurt for breakfast.
  2. Oatmeal:  Oatmeal contains soluble fiber, which isn't broken down until it reaches the large intestine, where digestion causes gas -- which can increase bloating.
  3. Asparagus:  May ease gas build-up and, because of its diuretic properties and also flush waste and excess water from your body.
  4. Quinoa: This South American grain is a great source of the minerals magnesium, phosphorous and especially manganese. The potassium in quinoa has been shown to beat bloat by balancing and circulating body fluids. (your jeans will thank you).

Cardio and Yoga:
On top of cardio (the fastest way to burn the fat that's covering those dying-to-make-their-debut abs), take a few yoga classes during the week. Certain postures such as "Seated Spinal Twist" and "Triangle" are known for aiding in digestion by wringing out your system and massaging your organs. Whether you're a yoga rookie or a regular, before class, mention to your instructor that you would like to focus on twisting postures.

Good ideas. I will have to stay away from the fruit in yogurts.
