Bikini de-bloat plan
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.
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.
Exercise boosts circulation and helps drain excess water
