For celebrity trainers and hosts of Extreme Weight Loss Chris and Heidi Powell| there’s a simple way to change the body instantly and beat belly bloat ¡ª?just in time for bikini season. It’s all about the foods we eat| but more importantly| overeat. If you’re consuming too much salt and sugar| a strong core can be covered up by a “layer of water and potentially a layer of fat|” Heidi says.
Here is the pair’s concrete rule to banish bloat in time for beach season: get sodium intake down to 1|500 milligrams per day| and cut sugar down to 20 grams. Eliminating excessive amounts of these belly-bloating culprits allows your body to naturally shed water weight and reveal all your hard work from the gym. Once you make this shift in your diet| Chris says you’ll see an immediate change.
To limit sugar and salt in your diet| cut out processed foods and reach for whole foods instead| like fresh produce and whole grains. And whenever you’re purchasing packaged foods from the grocery store| Chris insists that you “take a look at those nutrition labels!” When high percentages of salt and sugar are present| it’s a red flag to put the box back on the shelf and walk away. Let these low-sugar breakfast ideas and low-salt recipes serve as your go-to meals before slipping on that bikini.
