The Best Recipes to Deflate Belly Fat

To deflate without a strict diet, you must favor foods that do not ferment in the colon and enrich its menus with digestive flavors. Elisa Cloteau, dietician, has designed a truly tasty anti-bulking diet for you.

Bloating, stomach ache, constipation… When the intestines get irritated easily, it is sometimes necessary to limit the food sources of gluten, lactose or Fodmaps , this family of carbohydrates which ferment in the colon. Besides these undesirable, small gestures also help in many cases to make peace with his belly. In the diet designed by Elisa Cloteau, dietician in Pornichet and Nantes, no cabbage, or onion …, but broccoli puree to “break” the fibers.

Dried vegetables are preferred in soups (creamy lentils with cumin). And we also favor vegetable juices (porridge with hazelnut milk, dessert with coconut milk …) and sheep cheeses, also foods rich in ferments good for the microbiota (lacto-fermented vegetables, pollen …). The expert also advises to boost omega 3 (certain oils, herring, lamb’s lettuce, egg or “Blue White Heart” meat…) to reduce inflammation and intestinal permeability, to flavor her recipes with digestive ingredients (fennel seeds in a packet of fish, rosemary on a meat, star anise in a cooked pear …) and drink sweet infusions (thyme, lemon balm …).
