We have all wondered from time to time what should I eat to get a flat belly?
The battle of the bulge can seem like a constant climb up hill, however changing your diet can do wonders.
First off, it is important to avoid sodium—or foods with added salt—so toss out the potato chips. Salt makes you retain water, which in turn makes your belly protrude. The average American typically eats twice as much sodium than advised, so this can creep up in pretty much every packaged or processed food item.
It is best to focus on consuming foods that are rich in potassium, such as bananas and potatoes. Foods high in potassium help to reduce excess water weight, which often collects around your mid-section. What other foods help reduce this? Kidney beans, dried apricots, peaches, and figs, as well as avocados have all been proven to reduce the dreaded stomach bulge.
