How to (Quickly) Slim Down by New Year’s

I’d like to look fab in a slinky New Year’s Eve dress after eating my way through the holidays. Any tips to slim down fast?

ANSWER: Follow this guide for two days before New Year’s—and you’ll be ready to dazzle!

  • First, steer clear of the salt shaker and starchy carbs (like bread, rice, pasta and potatoes)
  • Second, drink tons of water. The more you drink the more you’ll de-bloat.
  • Third, eat three square meals consisting only of lean protein and vegetables.
    • Lean protein options include egg whites, fish and seafood, skinless chicken, turkey, pork tenderloin, and tofu. 
    • Vegetables can be raw, steamed, roasted or tossed in a salad.
