Beating the Holiday Bloat

I'm pretty sure most of the weight gain we feel post holidays is from holding onto water weight and bloating. Either way, it's probably the only thing I dislike about the holidays!! Over the years I've gathered a few tricks to de-bloat quickly so I'll be sharing them with you just in time for 2018.

  • Have a hot cup of water with fresh squeezed lemon juice and a sip of apple cider vinegar every morning on an empty stomach. FYI, when I say a sip of apple cider vinegar, I mean a very small sip. This stuff can literally clean you out and trust me, you don't want that!
  • Drink lots of water! I aim to drink at least half of my body weight in ounces of water daily.
  • Hit the sauna daily. I LOVE the sauna because it helps me to sweat out toxins and I feel great after at least 10-15 minutes in there.
  • Use a belly wrap (not waist trainer) while you workout or sit in the sauna. A few years ago my friend Jenny suggested this Everlast wrap that basically helps you sweat out all the water weight in your mid section. I love it and I've linked it below!
  • Drink weightless tea daily. I've linked this tea below and it can be found just about anywhere. It's supposed to help you shed water weight and it also tastes pretty good.
  • Watch out for extra salt. If you keep eating heavily salty foods then you will have a much harder time losing that water weight.
  • Eat healthy and stick to your normal workout routine. There is no need to overdo the cardio post holidays and it'll get you into a bad binge/restrict cycle. I have always found that I quickly lose water weight if I stick to a normal routine instead of overdoing the workouts.
These tips are not only helpful to shed water weight but they're also good to practice with your normal routine. Hope this helps and here's to kicking your 2018 off to a good start!!
