This is the follow up to the anti-cellulite post I wrote a last week. I have put together a simple to follow meal plan with tips and supplements, to give you a bikini body in 30 days! When embarking on any new detox or meal plan it is always best to prepare the body so it will be less of a shock and you won’t find yourself battling withdrawal symptoms or craving the wrong foods. I would strongly recommend cutting out sugar, coffee, alcohol slowly 3-2 weeks before starting the bikini diet. I would also like to emphasize that I do not believe in diets as they do not work. What I strongly believe in, is healthy eating. By leading a healthy and active lifestyle and looking after your internal organs you will have an abundance of energy and when you start to look good you will also start to feel more confident.

Take a good strength probiotic before breakfast. This will strengthen your immune system, aid digestion and give you a flat tummy.
Take a good multi vitamin suitable for your age and gender.
If you are experiencing sugar cravings and are finding the meal plan difficult to stick to try taking the mineral chromium 200mcg twice daily in between meals. Once it kicks in it really does help with sugar cravings.
L- carnitine is good as it helps the body to produce energy from fat. Take 500mg twice a day thirty minutes before meals.
The herb gotu Kola is fantastic for cellulite, probably the best. Take 500mg twice a day with food.
If you are on any type of medication please consult your doctor before embarking on any new meal plan and before taking supplements. I hope the above helps you to achieve your desired bikini body.
