Bikini de-bloat plan

bikinibodySun sea and sand calling?  Our bikini de-bloat is full of fluid fighting foods – and it’s speedy and simple to prepare.  Follow it for 5 days to lose up to 5lbs…

Superfood shopping basket

Bananas – great in summer smoothies

Swiss chard – why not try it with main meals

Celery – satisfying to crunch on between meals

Edamame beans – a nutritious snack

Avocados – fab in salads

 

How it works

We’ve designed a low salt diet plan with foods that are natural diuretics and high in the mineral potassium, to flush out fluid retention.  You should also drink 8 glasses of water a day as, strange though it may sound, the more you drink, the more fluid your body releases.

Skin boost

Do 2 minutes of dry bruising.  The light strokes of a brush with soft natural bristles will help flush away fluid.  Brush in the direction of your heart.

Get active

Exercise boosts circulation and helps drain excess water
