Get that tummy flat with a little help from your friends at Snatched Body!

Summer is hot and sizzling and everyone seems to be working to be perpetually bikini ready! And the number one thing on the wish list is a flatter tummy. Luckily, this is one of the easiest goals to accomplish with the right food.

Exercising is definitely something that will help, but we all know this. However, the one thing that will help even more than exercising is the food you eat! Many people walk around with excess bloating because of the foods they eat. They think they have stubborn belly fat they can’t get rid of when in reality it is just a bloated stomach!

Let’s take a closer look at ten foods that will really help you lose the bloating, and maybe even shed a pound or two of fat while we are at it.

10 Foods to Lose the Bloat and Fat for a Flatter Tummy

The foods that will be the best for a flatter tummy are all foods that come from mother earth. Anything that is processed or sugary can be thrown out! You will want to focus mainly on lots of leafy greens and vegetables, fruits, lean proteins, beans, nuts, and whole grains.

All those ready-made meals in your freezer? Sadly, they must go too. Can’t think of any foods you want to try? Here are ten tasty examples:

  1. Spinach: Spinach is great for the digestive system and makes a great base for a filling salad! Have you ever eaten a salad and still been hungry after? It is literally the worst! Make a salad with spinach instead and you’ll be fuller and far less bloated!
  2. Avocado: Health professionals everywhere recommend that everyone eat at least one whole avocado a day. It makes a great breakfast smashed on a piece of toast with a pinch of salt, lemon juice, and a sprinkle of feta cheese! Avocados are also packed with monounsaturated fats and will fill you up for hours.
  3. Plain Yogurt: Plain yogurt is so good for you and is such an easy snack to dress up with fruit or granola! You can even throw it in a smoothie if you aren’t a huge fan of the taste, *raises hand* like me.
  4. Red and Blue Berries: Raspberries, strawberries, blackberries, and blueberries are all packed with fiber to help keep those bowels moving. They also make a great addition to any smoothie or yogurt bowl.
  5. Any and All Beans: Beans are an amazing source of lean protein and are ten times easier for your stomach to break down than animal meat.
  6. Lean Meats and Eggs: Speaking of animal meat protein, things like salmon, chicken, turkey, and eggs are all great choices for animal protein because they are easier to break down than red meat. So, if you are a meat-eater, try to stick to these lean meats!
  7. Any and All Nuts: Just like beans, nuts are a great source of protein and make for a delicious and filling snack when you just want something to crunch on.
  8. Any and All Seeds: Seeds are a lot like nuts. They are a great source of protein and can easily be added to nearly any dish! Hemp seeds and raw pumpkin seeds (without the shell) are great examples of this. You can toss them in a smoothie, in a soup, or on top of a salad.
  9. Quinoa and Rice: Quinoa and long-grain brown rice are great sources of whole grains to help the digestive system and the muscles recuperate from exercising. They both are high in fiber and are pretty good sources of protein as well.
  10. Rolled Oats: Rolled oats make for an amazingly filling breakfast. You can dress it up with peanut butter/almond butter, chocolate chips, or fruit. You can even place them in a jar in the fridge overnight and make overnight oat parfaits.
