  1. Drink green tea liberally - it helps burn fat.
  2. Try no to let yourself get bored, stressed out or depressed, if possible. Try yoga, meditation, and herbs such as kava and ginseng for stress. Regular exercise, journaling and supplements such as fish, St. Johns wort and 5-HTP can help alleviate depression.
  3. Outwait your food cravings. They generally last no longer then 10 minutes.
  4. Distract yourself with a nonfood related activity, such as exercising, reading, pursuing a favorite hobby, listening to music, writing letters, surfing the internet (like you are now) or soaking in a hot bath.

  • Since I tend to drift from drinking enough water, I start drinking at least 10 cups a day right away. The last 3 - 4 days while drinking herbal, diuretic tea, I cut my water in half.
  • Get in 1 hour of cardio each day at low-middle intensity.
  • Every day, do a full body workout with light-weights, alternating two different programs. Do your abdominals every day.

  • Eat 4-5 meals a day slightly smaller than my normal servings. Go easy on the condiments. For the last three days during the diuretic phase, omit any high salt food, condiments and drink distilled water.
  • Drink herbal diuretic tea for the last three days before your target date. Be watchful of any ill affects of any new product you try. There are a lot to choose from if one does not work out. The flushing properties of any diuretic only lasts for around 3 - 6 days depending on your system. Do not take diuretics all of the time because they will loose their effectiveness.
  • Take a multivitamin with minerals. You loose a lot of minerals through taking diuretics.
  • Take an Epsom salt bath for the last two nights (naturally draws excess water from the tissues that cause bloating).
  • Paint on a body and face bronzer. A tanned body appears more fit and trim.

  • Get a facial. The healthy glow makes a big difference.
  • Men often look pounds lighter and more fit in swimsuit situations if they remove excess body hair (for some, this takes real commitment).
  • Don't forget to center yourself. Serenity, gratitude and love of life are really the great beautifiers.
