Start Eating THESE 6 Foods To Get A Flatter Tummy (Fast)

Incorporating healthier foods into your diet is difficult enough at this time of year without dealing with hunger pangs too.

But what if there was a way to satisfy your grumbling tummy and make if flatter at the same time?

Pick up a few of these foods in this week's grocery shop, then add them to your lunch or transfer them into small containers to keep in your handbag, car or desk drawer for when hunger strikes.

Avocado

Add half an avocado to your breakfast or lunch and you'll be scoffing 10 grams of monounsaturated fatty acids, which are proven to correct the spikes in blood sugar that lead to the storage of belly fat.

Skip the coffee and reach for the lemon

Starting the day with a zingy lemon water is the key to stimulating your gastrointestinal tract — improving your body's ability to absorb nutrients all day and helping food pass through your system with ease.

Beans

From chickpea to cannellini, mung to kidney, there's a bean for every dish. Use them to substitute bloating carbohydrates such as pasta, white rice and potatoes and you'll benefit from a nutritional boost as well.

Hummus

Made from chickpeas, hummus is a tasty snack that's ideal for any time of the day. Slather some on a handful of chopped vegetables to eat in front of the TV or dip some cucumber in a pot of hummus at your desk instead of fattening, belly-bloating crisps.
