So we know that for us to deal with this we need a good diet - fresh in fruit and vegetables, delete the white stuff, the soda, the sugar, and ditch the alcohol! We need to get the body flushing, drawing away the toxins and stubborn lazy fat cells that are hovering under our skin which simply just ruins the look! It just won't do! Right, we delete the demon diet and we destroy the offending lumpy bits, fighting talk now girls, OK? Green juices are excellent for helping us to flush out the little offenders, you may not fancy that idea, but let me tell you - they become addictive, and I have this great recipe from the 'Juice Master' specifically to help us with this problem, this is more like a smoothie than a juice, very appropriate really! Very tasty and much more effective than any expensive creams or salon treatments! Bikini Ready Green Juice: Ingredients we need -
- 1 apple
- 1 pear
- ¼ pink grapefruit
- 2 sticks of celery
- And a few mint leaves (chopped)
The grapefruit is a fantastic cleanser assisting the lymphatic system, it is also very high in vitamin C, boosting the smooth appearance of our skin.
The celery, apple and pear help cleanse the subcutaneous tissues and improve kidney function.
The apple and pear are also like intestinal brooms sweeping out toxins, poisons and bacteria, an all round winner! Don't drink anything else for around 20 minutes after the juice, but then remember to drink lots of fresh filtered water throughout the day to help flush your system.
This and some good exercise will soon win over the lumps and bumps and have you bikini ready!
