Five Days To Fabulous

Discover the high-fat fast track to visible transformation

So, the big event is coming. The reunion. The wedding. The presentation. What if I told you that strategic nutrition could have you looking noticeably healthier, sexier, and, yes, younger—in a matter of days. Read on for the most powerful nonsurgical, DIY transformation guide ever.

How do I know? Because it was once my job to make celebrities look younger and healthier, superficially, in a couple of hours. But after being forced by a health crisis to figure out my own do-or-die cellularlevel Rubik’s Cube, I can now help others do in a matter of days what took me decades to piece together. Check out celebrity trainer Shianne Lombard’s inside and out transformation after only five days (at right).

De-puff and De-bloat Basics

It might seem counterintuitive in our fat-averse society, but the key to a super slimdown is to cut carbs and eat more fat. Skip those sweet beverages and fruits. Switch to sea salt if you haven’t already (it doesn’t cause the water retention or sodium/potassium imbalance that regular table salt does). Eat a little sauerkraut every day. And take a multi-strain probiotic to reduce bloat, calm cravings, nourish skin, and even out blood sugar swings.

Avoid brined, or sodium-packed foods such as feta, olives, pickles, and Parmesan to reduce fluid retention. And avoid foods you’re sensitive to, of course. This will minimize digestive and skin flare-ups.

Regarding hydration, don’t shy away from water or sea salt, thinking they will bloat you. Just the opposite is true. Plenty of pure water and sea salt help allow your tissues to hydrate normally, affecting skin texture and eye health. Sea salt rarely throws off sodium/potassium ratios like table salt does, so water retention is rarely an issue. In fact, the lack of the electrolytes found in sea salt can cause bloat, not to mention a lack of energy, concentration, and ability to hydrate your tissues with the water you do drink.
