4 Steps to Getting a Sexier Waistline and Making Heads Turn

Having a sexy and slim waistline and a flat belly is not impossible at all! With just a little willingness, patience and effort, there are a few things you can do that will help you achieve fabulous and feminine curves in a very short time. Take a look at the tips below, stick to them, be consistent, don’t give up, and get that sexy waistline you’ve always wanted!

1. Get Rid of Excess Body Fluids

Having excess fluids trapped in your body tissues causes your belly to become swollen and appear larger, and it also increases your body weight. Often it is due to unhealthy foods, sedentary life, alcohol use and too much sodium in your diet.

Too much sodium in your diet can cause your body to retain fluids, so in order to shed those extra pounds and achieve a flat belly fast, you should absolutely switch to low sodium foods and cut down on salt.

However, the good news is that consuming certain diuretic herbs in tea forms can considerably help you deflate your tummy and eliminate excess water from the body. And this is the first step to getting a sexy waistline!

Drinking these teas for at least 10 to 15 days will have amazing effects on your body. As soon as you start eliminating excess water, you will also start losing weight!

Just to remind you, diuretics are substances that encourage the removal of excess fluids, salts, toxins and metabolic wastes from the body.

Herbal tea recipe:

Mix equal parts of the following herbs:

  • bermuda grass (Cynodon dactylon)
  • silver birch (Betula pendula)
  • goldenrod (Solidago virgaurea)
  • restharrow (Ononis spinosa)
  • orthosiphon (Orthosiphon)
  • licorice (Glycyrrhiza glabra)

Pour 4 cups of boiling water over 4 tablespoons of herbal mixture. Cover and steep for15 minutes. Strain and drink 4 times a day.

Advice:

It is better to drink herbal teas on an empty stomach.
