Bye-Bye Bloating!


With spring just around the corner, it’s time to start getting back in shape! Unfortunately, it takes time to see the results we want, so it’s great when a few short cuts come our way. It can be frustrating when you keep working out but instantly see the weight come back due to bloating. Many people think that they should drink less water to prevent bloating, but it’s actually the opposite! Here is a list of foods to prevent bloating and help you get your body bikini ready!


1. Parsley

Parsley is great for preventing bloating because it is a diuretic. This means that it helps our bodies get rid of the excess liquids we are retaining. By preventing water retention, you are sure to see a difference in your stomach!


2. Water

Drinking more water, rather than less, is the right way to go when trying to get rid of bloating! Drinking water stimulates our kidneys, which flushes out water faster. For best results, drink a glass of water 15 minutes before a meal and one hour after a meal. Stay hydrated!


3. Papaya

Papayas contain numerous digestive enzymes, meaning they break down the food that lingers in our stomach. Faster digestion equals faster bloating relief!


4. Avocados

Avocados are rich in potassium (more than bananas), which has the opposite effect sodium has on our bodies. While sodium makes us retain water, the high amount of potassium in avocados gets rid of the excess water in our bodies.


5. Yogurt

Yogurt helps digestion, which prevents bloating, and is filled with nutrients. However, check the nutrition labels! Some yogurts are filled with sugar, which is bad for bloating—be careful!


6. Peanut Butter

The good thing about peanut butter is that it has niacin as an ingredient, which speeds up digestion. However, peanut butter is only a good choice in moderation—make sure you go organic to stay away from a high fat/sugar intake!



  • Fried foods
  • Fizzy drinks
  • Chewing gum (causes you to swallow more air, which gets trapped in your stomach)
