Bananas and other foods that tend to be rich in potassium such as oranges, avocados, and pistachios, prevent your body from absorbing salt from in your foods and this will reduce salt induced bloat. Bananas are also a good source of soluble fiber, which can prevent constipation. Find out other natural ways to help constipation.


2. Asparagus

OK, so eating asparagus will make your pee smell funny, but who will notice except you? If you are popping buttons on your pants, though, everyone will notice that! Asparagus is a powerful anti-bloat food as it is a natural diuretic, so it helps you to lose water, which will relive that uncomfortable bloated feeling.


3. Papaya

Papayas contain an enzyme called papain that helps to break down proteins in the digestive system. This improves digestion and stops gas from forming.
