Here are six foods and drinks that help you bring your belly back down to size when your feeling bloated.


If you’re dealing with two or three pounds of PMS water weight, choose salmon for your next meal. Women who took 2 grams of an omega-3 fatty acid supplement per day—about the amount found in a 3-ounce fillet—were significantly less bloated than those popping a placebo, reports a 2013 study in Complementary Therapies in Medicine.
