A Protruded stomach can cause many health issues and other related problems. One of the best tips that you could follow in order to get a flat belly would be lessing the salt intake and also by focusing more on potassium-rich fiber diet.
A bloated stomach can invite many health-related problems. Cutting down on salt intake and focusing on a potassium-rich fiber diet can help in getting a flat stomach, says an expert.
A new book by Robynne Chutkan, a gastroenterologist and founder of the Digestive Centre for Women in Washington D.C, suggests that women have a tendency to bloat more than men mainly because they have longer intestines.
Cut down salt:
Edema and bloating are two health risks due to too much salt intake
. Stick to the recommended 1500 mg of salt intake a day. Don’t put salt on the table to add to your dinner and limit the amount whilst cooking. Avoiding ready meals is a must too as these are laden with salt for flavor.
Eat more fiber:
Eating a combination of soluble and insoluble fiber is an effective way to stay fit and avoid the bloated feeling that comes with constipation. Foods that are rich in fiber include oranges, mushrooms, raspberries, broccoli and cabbage.
Focus on potassium-rich foods:
As sodium makes body retain water, potassium helps it to get rid of excess water. Eating potassium-rich foods like bananas and sweet potatoes can help minimize your middle waist. But make sure to exercise right as these can be fattening too.
