Veggie De Bloat Cocktail

Foods that are high in water and potassium and low in sodium help flush out unwanted fluids. In particular, foods, such as celery, cucumber parsley, and watermelon, are said to have a diuretic effect, which means they help beat the bloat. In addition, cut back on salty foods and drink enough water every day so that your urine is pale yellow to help flush out your system.
