Getting a hot body is a more than a few spots down on the list of why I eat clean and exercise regularly, but it’s on there. And after spending a ton of time working up a sweat and even more time developing conscious eating habits, it’s pretty annoying that I’m left with a belly that looks like I’m 4 months pregnant. Seriously – if it’s past noon, I look like I’m packing a fetus. Can you feel me? I’m drinking more water, eating clean whole foods, hitting the gym (and you know how much I don’t love that place), and I’m still disguising my belly under baggy shirts and unbuttoning my skinny jeans after meals. It’s a nightmare (if I may be so dramatic). I dread making videos in anything clingy, so workout clothes give me hives. At some point this is going to affect my bottom line, and that means a LOT less of my favorite raw green juice deliveries and date nights to Pure Food & Wine — unacceptable!! You know what I do whenever I’m having any kind of diet/detox/digestive disaster… I call my superhero, raw food chef, detox expert and colon hydrotherapist Mike Perrine, to the rescue. You all know Mike. He gives us raw food recipes and answers all our burning questions about poop and acne. Mike breaks down all the bullsh*t about the detox fad culture and gives us super good and squeaky clean information. And that’s why we love him. I texted Mike (paraphrased for clarity), “My belly is huge! WTF?” and he gave me a simple list of 5 food combining rules to get my flat belly.
And guess what. It worked! In less than a week, I could look down and see my toes again, and my shiny neon spandex was back in rotation.
You know me – I love to share. I got Mike on video in NYC to outline these rules for you and I had my fabulous graphic designer, Shannon from SkinnySometimes.com, hook you up with this fun graphic reminders that you can use to stay on track.
