Men grab a pair of board shorts and are ready to scream, “cannonball!” Meanwhile we’re convinced we’re on track to looking like Brooke Burke-Charvet by eating broccoli crudités and hummus. Sorry Charlie, but even super foods like broccoli, Brussels sprouts, and beans can turn you into a gas-producing machine, causing unwanted belly bloat! It’s a cruel, cruel world isn’t it?

No need to run for cover or return all your bikinis in favor of a muu muu. We have created a go-to list of anti-bloat foods that will have you looking and feeling your best this swimsuit season.
