Redbook Magazine on-line recently shared information about 25 foods that help you banish bloat. Here are a few of their suggestions:
Bananas – They may feel heavy, but bananas do not make you gain weight. Quite the opposite: They’re loaded with filling fiber and potassium, which helps relieve water retention.
Cantaloupe – This orange melon is full of anti-bloating potassium, low in calories, and has a high water content, so you can get away with eating a lot of it.
Leafy greens – Some veggies, such as Brussels sprouts, are filled with important nutrients, but nonetheless make you bloat. Leafy greens, like kale, spinach, and lettuce, do no such thing. They’re all super-low-cal, loaded with fiber, and help ease water retention.
Oatmeal – The secret ingredient? Fiber, which helps keep you full without puffing you out. Sprinkle on cinnamon and breakfast is served.
