12 Tips for  Bikini-Ready Body

Yes, summer is soon here, and will be here every year, so whether you are within reach of your bikini body, or would like to gather your ammo and fine tune for next year, here are some safe, all-natural diet tips, taken from the new book The Bikini Diet by Maggie Greenwood-Robinson, PH. D.

  1. Don’t drink fruit juices or juice-based products while “dieting”. Get your nutrition from calories you chew rather then swallow.
  2. Shoot for 25 to 35 gm of fiber per day.
  3. If you get hungry, eat a few ounces of protein to tide you over until your next meal.
  4. Eat at least two servings of fish per week to get healthy fats.
  5. Spice up your food with red pepper, which boosts metabolism.
  6. Drizzle sugar-free syrup over cooked carrots for a sweet treat.
  7. Drink green tea liberally – it helps burn fat.
  8. Try no to let yourself get bored, stressed out or depressed, if possible. Try yoga, meditation, and herbs such as kava and ginseng for stress. Regular exercise, journaling and supplements such as fish, St. Johns wort and 5-HTP can help alleviate depression        .
  9. Outwait your food cravings. They generally last no longer then 10 minutes.
  10. Distract yourself with a nonfood related activity, such as exercising, reading, pursuing a favorite hobby, listening to music, writing letters, surfing the internet (like you are now) or soaking in a hot bath.
  11. Make a list of 25 things to do rather then eat, and keep it handy for times when you feel tempted to eat (when you shouldn’t).
  12. Freeze strawberries and other berries. They take longer to eat and provide a candy-like treat.
