Foods That Achieve A Flat Tummy

Losing weight is something we all want to do. Trying to achieve a flat tummy is difficult if you don’t put the right foods into your body. You can workout and do crunches all day but ultimately the food consumed is what will make a difference. 

Start avoiding foods that you know aren’t good for you: alcoholic beverages, soda, sugar, carb heaving foods and start giving your body the fuel it needs. Not only do these foods help achieve a flat tummy but they are also good and healthy foods that will make you have lots of energy throughout the day. 

DISCLAIMER: I am not a doctor nor a nutritionist. These are just foods that have been known to help give a flat belly. 

Green tea

Green tea has a boat load of benefits. It can risk heart disease and reduce cancer risk. But green tea also aids in achieving a flat tummy. It contains antioxidants and catechins which have been found to promote weight loss. Drinking green tea before a workout can increase fat burning.


Cucumbers have a high water content, like 96 percent water. They have an antioxidant that helps reduce swelling and bloating. Eating cucumbers can be fun because there are so many different ways to munch. Dip into a hummus or some peanut butter for some extra protein or just chop up and put it on a salad. The crunchy veggie is great to eat when wanting to achieve a flat tummy.


B-A-N-A-N-A-S! Yup, thats right, this sweet fruit helps aid in losing tummy fat. Bananas are rich in potassium and also contain a healthy form of carbohydrates that your body will digest slowly. This will keep you full for longer. This healthy carb is called a resistant starch and it encourages the liver to switch to fat-burning mode and gives your metabolism a boost. Next time you need a pick-me-up, try snacking on a banana. 


Ginger is a wonderful root that helps with a ton of different things but specially keeping your belly flat. It has compounds that help keep your bowels moving helping to de-bloat your body. Try having a glass of warm lemon water in the morning and grate in about a thumb size of ginger. It has a really soothing taste and will also help achieve a flat tummy.

Eating yogurt every morning will help promote healthy digestion. Plain yogurt is filled with probiotics that help balance out the good bacteria in your stomach. This can be Greek yogurt or regular but adding it to your morning breakfast or afternoon snack will help aid in a flat stomach. It helps keep things in your body moving along and also will help with any lady issues you might be having. It kills two birds with one stone. If plain yogurt isn’t your jam then sprinkle on a little bit of cinnamon and honey. Don’t go over board by adding fruit and granola. It just adds unnecessary sugars and carbs. 


Quinoa is an amazing super food that tastes just as good. The high fiber seeds aid in digestion and can improve overall health because of their low glycemic index. If you aren’t a huge meat eater, adding protein to your dinner will help give you more protein. There are so many ways to eat quinoa but adding it on top of a bowl of greens like kale and pairing it with a piece of fish is a delicious way to eating a healthy meal. 

Dark Chocolate

Don’t feel like if you want to achieve a flat tummy that means cutting out “bad” food. Dark chocolate is a nutrient dense snack that, in moderation, can help you get to your goal. Dark chocolate is a natural suppressant that will help reduce stress and boost your metabolism. Enjoy life and eat some dark chocolate if you want too. 

All of these foods will help you achieve that flat tummy you are looking for but don’t forget to exercise and make an entire lifestyle and diet change if you want to see results. Comment below and tell us your favorite way to eat these flat tummy foods!
