Get a Flatter Belly in 3 Days

If you have only 72 hours to fit into that slightly tight skirt, further slim your tummy with these strategies:

  1. Pass the salt. Skip sodium-packed foods, such as processed foods, canned soups, packaged snacks, and fast foods.
  2. Get wet. The more water you drink, the more easily your body excretes it. Spice up your beverage intake by drinking iced ginger-lemon tea.
  3. Cut back on carbs. Skip the extra slice of bread and have an open-faced sandwich, or select the smoothie instead of the waffle for breakfast. Choose protein-rich snacks such as low-fat cheese or nuts.
  4. Deflate. Go light on gas-forming bran, legumes, cabbage, bell peppers, dried fruits, and onions.

Does it have to be whole wheat bread. I like oat bread much better.

I go much lighter for breakfast than this. I know it's ideal to have your big meal early, but that just doesn't work for me. I have more time in the evenings to enjoy a larger meal and that's when I'm most tempted to overeat anyway, so I save my calories for then. Breakfast is usually just 200-300 calories (a microwavepoached egg on a slice of wheat toast or high-fiber instant oatmeal with frozen fruit mixed in).
