Feeling the bloat? Want flat abs by tomorrow? Try these amazing quick fixes to shrink your tummy in just one day
Uh-oh… You’ve been invited to drinks and that slinky number is screaming your name — but it looks like you swallowed a baby seal. All is not lost. You can have a flat tum within 24 hours (yes, for real!) by following this easy, no-fail weight-loss advice:
Lose The Water Weight
Replace refined carbs with one-cup servings of natural diuretics such as artichokes, asparagus or watercress to flush your system, says dietician Frances Largeman-Roth, author of Eating in Colour.
De-Puff Your Stuff
“Cucumbers contain caffeic acid, which helps fight swelling,” says Largeman-Roth. It works on more than the bags under your eyes.
Eat More Oranges
Foods high in potassium help short-term shrinkage, says dietician Lauren Slayton. Bananas, cooked spinach and most orange-coloured produce — think sweet potato, gooseberries, apricots and mangoes – are all good sources.
It’s standard weight-loss advice: reach for the tap. Drinking water really does flush fat, the journal Obesity reports. This is because well-hydrated cells can boost your metabolism.
