It’s almost summer! That means bikini season—for you, and for celebrities. Try out these ten tips, and who knows? You could lose ten pounds in ten days!
1. Drink it up.
Replace a meal with a protein shake. Studies show it really helps people lose more weight.
2. More fiber.
About 30 minutes before you eat, stir a teaspoon of freshly ground flaxseed into water and drink up. It will make you feel fuller fast.
3. Cut out junk.
Nix white flour, sugar, and sweetened beverages from your diet—think of them as empty calories.
4. Sleep more!
Sleep deprivation can slow down your metabolism.
5. Try a new treat.
Snack on Greek yogurt or beef jerky—both are high-protein, hunger-satisfying foods.
6. Read labels.
Be aware of sugar in unexpected places—like frozen yogurt, which can pack a lot of calories in a small cup.
7. Don’t skip meals.
Eating consistently keeps your internal furnace and metabolism burning.
8. Fill up.
Drink plenty of water to flush out toxins and prevent dehydration.
9. Eat good fats.
Make extra virgin coconut oil your oil of choice. It helps speed up your metabolism.
10. Cut back.
Avoid eating heavily processed foods, dairy, and caffeine.
