Will you be hiding under a sarong this season? Friday 22 February 2008 PDF Print Will you be hiding under a sarong this season? So you’ve been pumping iron in the gym, burning calories at the aerobics class or just wishing away that winter weight, but are you ready for your summer wardrobe? There’s no denying that as much as we long for the warmer months, which seem to come earlier every year, there is something about this time of year that fills us with a sense of dread. It’s time to ask ourselves: Are our bodies bikini fit? Yes smock tops are going to be here for another season and yes you can throw on a sarong on the beach but at some point there will be no escaping that big reveal. While we all know that avoiding ‘naughty’ foods and working out are key to staying in shape, there may be something else that is adding to that bulging waistband. In fact, uncomfortable and unsightly bloating caused by water retention may be a factor. Few women realise that up to three pounds of excess water may be trapped in their bodies at any time. So unless you’re happy in an all-in-one tummy control swimsuit then read on! Aquaban Herbal has some top tips for a happy, bulge and bloat-free bikini body: • Drink lots of water, regularly – the recommended daily amount is two litres a day and we really need to increase this even more during periods of over-indulgence • Do some regular exercise – no-one expects you to head to the gym every day but with the finer weather looming (fingers crossed) a brisk stroll for twenty minutes every day should be easy to fit in • Eat plenty of fruit and vegetables – as the weather warms up we feel less inclined to stock up on stodge and tend to tuck in to healthy salads, so this should become easier • Don’t add salt to your meals • And if you have a tendency to suffer from water retention take a natural, herbal diuretic like Aquaban Herbal “I am quite sure that the girls at Aquaban Herbal are not the only ones who shudder at the thought of exposing their bodies, but these top tips should help all of us have a more comfortable waist line with just a little bit of effort,” says resident GP on Channel 5 news and former Radio 2 medical expert, Dr Mike Smith*. Aquaban Herbal tablets work naturally by helping to get rid of this unwanted water from the body, leaving you feeling great. It contains a blend of three natural herbal diuretics – Uva Ursi, Clivers and Burdock root – which work together to gently reduce the problem without leaving you dehydrated.
