Beat bloating with watermelons

This low-cal fruit is not only loaded with the antioxidant lycopene but it might also relieve water retention. "Watermelon acts as a mild diuretic," says Jennifer Hill, a Vancouver-based registered dietitian. "So if you ate a high-salt meal and you're bloated, watermelon may help you pass the excess fluid."

Cool fresh watermelon is an ideal snack on its own, or try it in a salad with mint and goat cheese. You can even grill it on the barbecue for a healthy dessert.
