6 Foods to Avoid Before You Hit the Beach
By Lizzie Fuhr for POPSUGAR Fitness
We know you're spending plenty of time getting your body bikini ready with healthy food and fun workouts. Finding the most flattering suits for your body is a great start, but being equipped with as many tools as possible will help you feel confident before running around on the beach. Don't be concerned about extra bloat before you rock your bikini! Here are six foods to avoid right before you hit the beach.
1. Carbonated Drinks
While you've hopefully taken the initiative to say goodbye to soda for good, sparkling water can be a decent substitute if you can't get enough of those bubbles. With that said, it's best to avoid any carbonated drinks before you hit the beach to steer clear of unnecessary belly bulge or gas.
2. Super-Salty Foods
While sodium-rich foods won't necessarily make you gassy, they definitely will make you retain water. Even though chips and salsa may seem like the ideal pre-beach grub, opt for something with lower levels of sodium to help you feel your best before you bare all.
3. Cruciferous Veggies
They're great foods for long-term weight loss, but if there's one time to turn down heaping helpings of broccoli, cabbage, or kale, it's right before you hit the beach! These veggies contain a complex sugar called raffinose that's known to cause bloat.
