Scared about the number you saw on the scale this morning?? Wondering how to get back into shape after the holidays? All that binging on cakes, cookies and pies left you feeling a little rounder than usual? Hoping you can get back on track after blowing your diet? We’ve got some QUICK AND EASY ways to get back in shape after the holidays!
Now, if you aren’t already making an effort to stay in shape and you aren’t on a diet OR exercising, then these tips and tricks below probably won’t do much for you. However, if you normally try to stay in shape, get exercise and are overall concerned about your health, then these quick and easy tricks will help you get back on track faster than usual!
1. Anti Cellulite Shorts
One of the fastest ways to drop weight (if you are already getting a little exercise and watching what you eat) is Anti Cellulite Shorts. How do they work? They help to increase your body’s core temperature which makes you sweat and rid excess water retention. It also helps to increase the rate at which you burn calories, making your exercise routine more effective.
I have personally tried and can recommend Delfin Spa Bio Ceramic Anti Cellulite Shorts which retail for around $39.99 and come in sizes Extra Small to Extra Large. They can be purchased on Amazon.com for $39.99, Drugstore.com for $35.09 or Delfinspa.com for $39.99.
Bio Ceramic Anti-Cellulite Shorts Make Inches Disappear, quite literally. It says to wear them for 2 weeks to lose up to 2 pant sizes. I was super excited to find that I lost a whole pants after just THREE DAYS of wearing the Zaggora Hot Pants.
2. Slimming Tea
Holiday over eating can really get your digestive system out of whack… If you only gained a few pounds over the holiday season, you might really benefit from just “eliminating some toxins” from your system with something like Dukan Diet Slimming Tea. (You may experience more frequent bowel movements for the first couple of days after having used Dukan Diet Slimming Tea. This is simply an indication that the tea is eliminating “toxins” from the digestive system.) In another words, you’ll lose a few pounds! ;-)
Slimming Tea can be purchased on ShopDukanDiet.com for $8.99 a box of 30 bags. Use my email address (dukan [at] sarahjean [dot] org) as your “referral” when signing up to receive a $10.00 coupon to use on your first order!
3. Drink More Water
There are many benefits to drinking more water and one of them is weightloss. Drinking water actually supports optimal metabolism and research shows it may naturally curb your appetite. If you are drinking water, you are filling your stomach and you are less likely to want to grab something fattening to snack on. Drinking more water also flushes out excess sodium to help you lose that holiday bloating (or that-time-of-the-month bloating) quickly as well as getting your digestive system moving which helps to relieve constipation. You should aim to drink at least 2 to 2.5 liters a day (about 8 to 10 cups).
Admittedly, I have trouble drinking water most of the time… It doesn’t taste good! I don’t have the desire to drink water unless I’ve just exercised or eaten something really salty. So if you’re like me in that way, you’ll love Dasani Drops Flavor Enhancers. With Zero Calories per 8 fl oz serving, you can have as much of this as you want. Just add a few drops to your bottles of water and you’ll be chugging it in no time. Trust me.
What is DASANI DROPS? A concentrated flavor enhancer that allows you to add just the right amount of flavor and sweetness to your water which makes it a lot easier and more enjoyable to get those recommended 64-ounces of water down the hatch. Pocket-sized, but powerful – the 1.9 fluid ounce bottle makes a whopping 32 – 8 oz servings and best of all, its calorie-free. Bottoms up!
Get it in stores or on Amazon.com
4. Herbal Diuretics
In addition to drinking more water, we recommend Dukan Diet WHOOSH – an all-natural herbal diuretic that supports the kidneys’ ability to eliminate excess sodium and water from the body and helps to reduce bloating. The perfect thing to add to your diet after holiday binging and great for just everyday use as well. I take this everyday and I definitely notice a difference if I forget to take it!
You can also add Dandelion Tea to your daily routine which has diuretic effects.
As always, (no brainer disclaimer here) if you have any types of health issues like kidney disease, etc be sure to check with your doctor before adding any supplements like this to your diet.
5. Slimming And Toning Creams
No, there are no miracle creams that are going to take you from 50 pounds overweight to looking like a super model. Sorry! However, there are some amazing slimming and toning creams out there that actually work really well.
My favorite standby that I always have on hand is Bliss FatGirlSlim. It visibly diminishes those dastardly dimples and cellulite by energizing the skin, stimulating its surface to firm and contour, and reduces the appearance of excess fluid retention in skin layers. Works even better when used in conjunction with recommended product number one – Anti Cellulite Shorts. When used together, you will have incredible results in less than two weeks.
We also love Mama Mio ZAP Shrink To Fit Hip & Thigh Cream – a sink-in-quick serum cream, packed with super effective ingredients that help reduce the appearance of cellulite, restore elasticity to skin, reduce water retention and increase firmness to sagging skin. If is also rich in Adiposlim™, an amazing new ingredient proved in lab testing to help prevent new fat cells from forming. Yay!
If you suffer from stretch marks, you may also want to try Strivectin-SD! Stretch marks, wrinkles and aging skin don’t stand a chance against StriVectin-SD! This supercharged, skin repair cream is said to improve the appearance of wrinkles and stretch marks, improve visible discoloration in skin tone, hydrate, and improve the texture and tone of the skin. ($135) The stretch marks on my stomach from two pregnancies are almost invisible now after using this stuff for a year. You are supposed to use it twice a day for like 3 months, but admittedly my results were much slower since I only used it 3-4 times a week. It does work though!
No cream is a miracle in a jar so be sure to read reviews from blogs you trust (like ours) before investing in any expensive lotions or creams. There are SO many products on the market that make bold claims and do NOTHING, yet they are quite expensive. I only recommend and write about products that I actually have personally used and have seen results from so you can trust what you read here! :-)
If you have a significant amount of weight to lose (20 pounds or more) we urge you to consider going on a diet. Not just for aesthetics, but for your health. Being overweight can cause serious health issues such as heart disease, diabetes and more. We highly recommend The Dukan Diet. I personally have tried and SUCCEEDED with The Dukan Diet. I lost 18 pounds in 8 weeks on The Dukan Diet!
