While it is easier to say “skip the cookie” than done, here are some hacks that I find help subdue cravings and get rid of the bloating/gas!!
1 | ACV ‘Tea’
Apple cider vinegar is basically an amazing additive that you can use in various recipes to add a little flavor (especially to dressings). However, the taste can be unbearable at first. So I say, ease into it. Don’t take it like a shot, your teeth will thank me later; mix a cap full (to start) in a hot cup of water, add the juice from half a lemon, 1 teaspoon of honey and a dash of cinnamon or cayenne. Progressively work your way from a cap to a table spoon!
Remember: the more ACV the more water you need to have to protect your teeth and esophagus, I personally grab my largest mug every morning to do this blend.
Given that vinegar lowers blood sugar and insulin levels, it makes sense that it could help you lose weight.
Several human studies suggest that vinegar can increase satiety, help you eat fewer calories and even lead to actual pounds lost on the scale.
Vinegar along with high-carb meals can increase feelings of fullness and make people eat 200-275 fewer calories for the rest of the day
By reducing calorie intake, this should translate to reduced weight over time (healthline.com)

3 | LGT ‘Tea’
LGT stands for Lemon, Ginger & Tumeric. Basically 3 of the most detoxing, cleansing, and uplifting ingredients all together in one tasty cup of zigazig-ahhhhhh.. This flat-belly, inflammation and toxin-fighting drink is one of my favorite go to’s and is extremely easy to whip up with ingredients in your fridge!
What you’re going to do is dice up your ginger and stick it into a tea strainer (click here for my suggested strainer of choice), squeeze half or a whole lemon into 8-12oz of hot water, do a sprinkle of tumeric (up to one teaspoon) for taste and voila!
Get ready for some serious shrinkage in the bloat department.
But isn’t cleansing bad for you?
I suggested cleaning drinks, not a diet to go with it.
Obviously you’re going to want to cut back on processed foods, fast foods, basically all that bad shit and focus on lean protein, healthy fats and plenty of greens. I am no healthcare professional, but after years of holiday get togethers and a struggle to fit into my jeans the next day, I found a few healthy hacks to give me an edge on my body. Make sure you consult with a healthcare professional if you have questions regarding any of these products and definitely avoid if you are allergic. Feel free to Pinterest some “cleanses” that work for you as well. I really like drinking fresh cranberry juice (that I juice) with some ginger, apple and orange to keep me regular throughout the holidays!
Also, if you’re just wanting to get a metabolism boost. Throw some GREEN TEA into your routine! Trader Joes sells awesome to-go matcha packs that you can throw in your water! Green tea has amazing antioxidant capabilities as well, I definitely binge on this one!
Good luck babes, may your waistline be with you the next few weeks!
