Stomach starting to hang over your jeans? It happens! While a bloated belly can be uncomfortable—and when it comes with gas, even downright embarrassing—it’s not uncommon. Also, it’s not as difficult to remedy as people might think. Just make a few strategic tweaks to your diet, and your tummy will flatten back into place.
Below are 4 stomach-friendly food options to consider. These edibles help improve your digestive process so you can reach your flat-belly goals!
Granola will often feature a medley of oats and nuts, both of which are rich in fiber. This helps you feel full faster and stops you from eating more than necessary. The fiber content also regulates digestion, getting rid of any constipation. Try switching out your sugary breakfast cereals for healthy granola. Feel free to add milk or yogurt, then top it all off with the fruit of your choice. Trust us, your future abs will thank you for it!

2. CHIA SEEDS
Chia seeds have been around for ages, long before they were sprinkled over green smoothies. In fact, they’re believed to have been a staple in ancient Mayan and Aztec diets. Chia seeds contain protein, which is ideal for people who want to lose weight. Protein helps regulate your appetite and even lessens cravings. Over and above their protein content, chia seeds are also rich in antioxidants, calcium, and omega-3s, which give you energy. Try incorporating them into porridge, oatmeal, smoothies, or even a plain glass of water. Chia seeds are tasteless so they pretty much go with anything.

We said it earlier and we’ll say it again: nuts are awesome for your health. They’re full of protein, healthy fats, and fiber. As in happens, trail mix combines healthy nuts with nutritious seeds and dried fruits. These are easy on the stomach and also quite filling. Plus, they make an ideal snack for busy girls who need to eat on the go.

A more nutritional alternative to classic peanut butter, almond butter is quickly gaining popularity all over the world. This tasty, almond-based spread is loaded with calcium, magnesium, healthy fats, and fiber.
