So, it is quite important to reduce bloat first. To reduce it through diet foods, it is a must to eat a high-protein breakfast along with fiber to reduce or avoid constipation problems.

1. Don’t Skip Breakfast
To normalize the appetite, it is very important to break the fasting first. People who skip breakfast hurry to overeat the meals, snacks at a later time. Sometimes, this also rushes one to take unhealthy food due to hungriness. If you follow these types of habits, definitely it doesn’t help you for a flat belly goal. If you don't have time to take breakfast, try to have at least a hard-boiled egg along with fresh fruit rather starving.
2. Don’t eat too fast
Pankonin even said that those who tend to eat food faster can have belly bloat problems.

3. You skimp on Protein
Dr.Wright says “It is easy for everyone to have breakfast with lots of carbs with foods like bagels, cereals, and croissants. But, it is essential to skimp to protein as it lowers blood sugar and avoids early hunger feeling.” The protein intake is considered good because it keeps your blood sugar stable for such a long time. You can even take avocado spread on a whole-wheat toast, Greek yogurt with fresh fruit, or even a veggie omelet.
4. Munch on Fat-free muffins or scones:
Pankonin says, “Pastry items in the market are maybe fat-free but they can high calories, carbohydrates, and too low in protein.” He also says, “It is important for every one of us to have a balanced breakfast meal – Balanced carbs, fat, and protein in a breakfast as it provides enough nutrients required for a body.” The right proportion of nutrients in a breakfast meal reduces the urge to snack before lunch meals.
5. Choosing a lot of Pre-packaged breakfast choices:
“Pre-packaged foods may attract you with a healthy cover, but most of them are packed with added sugar, which is not advisable. For instance, pre-flavored oats have nearly 20gms of sugar, granola with 17gms of sugar, and other breakfast bars have at least 13gms of sugar in it,” says Dr.Wright. The amount of sugar in this packaged food is supposed to deliver only more calories and in the worst case, it can only provide you energy for a short time. One can feel tired, shakiness, and even hungry after some 20-30 minutes.
The best food choice here is to opt for whole-grain cereals or oats self-flavored with almonds and berries as it will provide you long-lasting energy for at least 3-4 hours. These foods are even packed with a lot of fiber, vitamins, and minerals content that will make your stomach satisfied and also helps to beat the bloat.
6. Drinking lattes with high-level sugar as a breakfast
Pankonin also said that those who are just consuming coffee with sugar as a breakfast might hurry in finding something to have after reaching the destination. This habit, after few days, will add additional pounds on the scale if you're not maintaining those calories from your routine morning beverages, snacks, and so on.
