The best foods for your belly

We have the best foods for you that are healthy and can help you shrink your stomach at the same time.

High-Fiber and Antioxidant-Rich Vegetables

All veggies are good for you. They are high in vitamins, antioxidants, and fiber and are generally low in calories and low in fat. Our plan focuses only on veggies rich in anti- inflammatory magnesium and other important minerals.

These are found in: leafy green veggies (kale, Swiss chard, spinach), bell peppers, cucumbers, eggplant, tomatoes, potatoes.

Fruits

Many sweet fruits have a balanced glucose-to-fructose ratio, which may be easier on your gut than those with more fructose.

For instance: bananas and blueberries, cantaloupe and honeydew, grapes, oranges, pineapple, papaya, strawberries, raspberries.

Nuts, Seeds, Nut Butters

Nuts and seeds are great sources of energizing protein, low-fermentable fiber, and anti-inflammatory fats.

Why not try: almonds, hazelnuts, macadamia nuts, peanuts, pecans, pine nuts, walnuts, chia seeds, flaxseeds, pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds, sunflower

And, for those with a sweeter tooth: Maple Syrup

It has the least fructose compared with other sweeteners. You may tolerate maple syrup

better than high-fructose honey or agave nectar
