Post Holiday De-Bloat

Here are four of my favorite tips to beat the post-holiday bloat :) Hope you all had a very merry Christmas!
detox
1. Reduce Carbs: When we eat a lot of carbs our body holds onto water. So get rid of extra water by reducing carbs for a week or so. Your body will then use up the stored carbs in the liver and muscle.2. Cleanse with Green Veggies: Eat broccoli, kale, asparagus and cabbage bc they contain phytonutrients that act like diuretics hich can help get rid of toxins in the body.

3. Stimulate your Metabolism: Up your intake of certain foods like chili peppers, capsaicin, hot sauce or hot peppers!! Green tea is also a great metabolism booster.

4. Up the intensity: get back to your workout schedule. Cardio not only burns calories, it helps rid the body of water. Do more intense and longer cardio workouts! 3,500 calories equals 1 lb of fat, so try to burn at least 500 calories per workout session!

Happy Post Holiday WORKOUT TIME!!
