The truth is having a perfectly flat belly all the time isn't normal.

The fact is that every time you eat, your tummy expands which can look like a baby bump, giving you that annoying bloated look.

Did you know that when fully expanded, your stomach can hold up to 6 cups of food which is equal 6 baseballs worth of food?

Since this bump is inevitable, you might as well know that certain food and drinks contribute to a bigger bump than others.

So we are gonna try to key you in as to the kinds of foods you should eat or avoid to prevent a bloated stomach.

First of, avoid foods that take so much space and go for simpler foods that take little space and are easier to digest.

You could try carrots, cooked or otherwise, or a small cup of dried fruits. A cup of fresh grapes shrinks to the size of a quarter of raisins.

When it comes to water, the bubbles found in sparkling water are actually gas that can get trapped in your stomach, giving you a droopy look.

So for flatter looking stomach, stick to plain, old H2o.
