Start feeling slimmer within the week

How great does that sound? I look forward to trying them, myself – particularly now – after a lovely afternoon and evening of fun and frolic with friends yesterday evening.

It was a memorable evening where we met, had a fabulous time, went food-hopping and rounded off the evening with a musical feast and dinner.  Mmmmm. I could get lost in those thoughts – but enough said – when online interactions rock offline as well, it is a wonderful feeling. It was also the evening I got introduced to corn bhel – okay, am salivating and more about that another time.

So – let us get on to those tips that will help you begin to feel slimmer within a week.

1. Drastically reduce your consumption of grain-based foods for five days. This includes wheat, bread, pasta, rice, cereal … you get the idea.

2. Cut salt from your diet. I remember my Mom’s dietician saying that we can survive without salt, because it is just an acquired habit. Check the labels of anything you eat. Consume no more than 100 mg of salt or less per item and hide that table salt.

3. Take up regular cardio exercises such as walking, jogging, hiking, cycling, for approximately an hour or so for at least five days.

4. Focus on dark green vegetables in your diet, going for at least three servings per day. This includes asparagus, kale, chard, spinach etc.

5. Drink one bag of Dandelion Root tea every day – it detoxes your liver.

6. Increase your water intake during the first three days, and decrease it from the fourth day.

 Don’t believe me? Try them. They work. Simply because here is the secret: there is nothing better than making long-term lifestyle changes – hopefully when you stick to this for a week, some of it will develop into a habit.

Stay healthy!

    Kim, While reading up about sea salt, it appears that Beyonce believes in the Master Diet Plan where one of the components is mixing sea salt with a quart of water and drinking it in the morning and evening to flush impurities from the body. Hmm. I don’t mind a bod like Beyonce. 🙂

    Dandelion root has many benefits according to ayurveda besides being a liver detoxifier.

    Tulika, it seems that dandelion root is available in certain kirana (grocery) shops that sell herbs. It is called dudal or kanphul in hindi. My grandmother referred to it as simhadanti. Or you may want to try a health food store where they sell the tea leaves/sachets.
