Drink Green tea
Swap your five cups of Tetley for 2 cups of green tea per day and reap the rewards. Not only is green tea great for your health – it is said to protect against diseases such as diabetes and high cholesterol – it is a great weight loss aid. Thanks to the polyphenol ingredient found in green tea, drinking two cups per day increases your metabolism and as a result ensures fat is burnt quicker.
We know it sounds like hard graft, but it is only two weeks and we promise you’ll feel the benefits straight away. Sugary foods are a hot bikini bod’s nemesis – according to scientists sugar not only adds inches to your waistline but also changes the body’s metabolism, raises blood pressure, throws hormones off balance and harms the liver. Cut it out for the two weeks before your holiday and you’re guaranteed to notice a difference on your waistline!
The aim: Look as fab as Kim Kardashian in a bikini!
No carbs after 7pm
Carbs are not the enemy; in fact you need carbs to ensure a healthy, balanced diet but if you’re after a super flat stomach to show off then leave the carbs to breakfast and lunch. Have a large salad or a side of veg with your dinner instead of pasta or potatoes.
Keep your metabolism on the go by snacking throughout the day. No, this does not mean you can start snacking on biscuits or crisps, opt for some nuts and seeds and make sure you eat every two hours.
Exercise by doing three to five resistance training workouts per week. Weight-training not only burns calories and fat while you are working out, it also elevates metabolic rate for up to 48 hours or moreafterward. Moreover, resistance training builds lean muscle, which burns calories at rest, every hour of every day.
