Beat the post-feast pooch

 
You spent all weekend scarfing down your favorite holiday foods—honey-baked ham, gingerbread cookies and a pile o’ sides. But today? Today, your tummy is more pooch than perfectly toned. Ditch the bloat and get your ab-fab body back in just a few easy steps.

 

Ditch the salt

When it comes to bloating, salt is your number-one enemy. It may be a mineral, and yeah, we do need some to function optimally, but chances are the food you ate during the big holiday feast was way overloaded with sodium. To detox, say buh-bye to salty snacks like chips and pretzels, and instead go for food that are flavored using spices rather than salt.

 

Say hello to H2O

To flush out the bad and welcome in the good, you wanna increase your water intake. Carry a glass or a water bottle with you all day and remember to sip 24/7. Aim for eight full glasses a day—and don’t fudge it with flavored water or juice! If you need a little tang, try squeezing in some fresh lemon or lime juice.

 

Fruit frenzy

Put the Christmas chocolates way up high on a pantry shelf and close the door, chica. When you get a craving for something sweet, reach for a bowl of fruit, like strawberries or juicy apples, or a Clementine. Still not satisfied? Toss that Hershey’s bar to the side and opt for a square or two of really dark chocolate.

 

Sayonara, soda

Forget the fizz from now ‘til New Year’s. That means leaving cans of pop and bottles of sparkling cider in the fridge. None of it quenches your thirst, and the carbonation (and added sodium and other chemicals) fill your tummy with gas. Who wants that?
