Blueberries have always been known to be a superfruit, but their true powers are only just being explored. They’ve been recently revealed to fight stomach fat, and leave you much svelter. They aren’t in season for long, but even frozen fruits have the same effect. Blueberry, anyone?

Papaya’s are a very exotic tasting, tasty fruit, and they are great for you too. Not only are they packed with vitamins and minerals, but they also break down fibre, which causes bloating and gas when it isn’t broken down. It's also great for lustrous,healthy skin. Try it with Greek yoghurt...Mmmm!

7 Salmon

Salmon is packed with Omega 3, which really help you to digest your food and keep you looking trim and aid in burning calories. It also tastes great, and you can eat so much of it. It goes well with so many different meals, you’ll never guess you are eating the same food. Yummy!

8 Water

Water is so obvious, as it helps toflush your system of toxins, reduces bloating and helps digestion. Most people drink juice or squash, however, and don’t get enough of the good stuff. Dislike water? I can’t stand the stuff, but adding fresh fruit to it gives it a hint of flavour which makes it more drinkable.

I’ve been editing my meal plans to add in these super foods, and I can’t wait for them to help melook amazing in my bikini! After all, who doesn’t want a flat stomach and a healthier digestive system!? Have you found a food which makes you slim? Please let me know!
