Okay, maybe you overdid it a bit over the holidays and are feeling super uncomfortable right now. Luckily, I have some weight loss hacks to quickly and safely get rid of your holiday hangover and that extra pound or two. Here are my 5 proven ways to help you lose the weight, get back on track and feel good in your body again.
1. Drank too much? Get rid of headaches, brain fog, fast with this powerful herb and detox bath.
I take Milk thistle or Glutathione on the nights I drank too much or when I’m feeling a wee hung-over. Does the trick in
about 30 minutes. It clears my brain fog, stops my headache and clears up my skin.
Milk thistle has been used medicinally for over 2000 thousand years to help improve the body’s ability to neutralize toxins. It prevents the depletion of glutathione; a powerful antioxidant that’s 5000 times more powerful than Vitamin C or Vitamin E. Glutathione is used to neutralize toxic chemicals and to metabolize things like alcohol and medications. Milk thistle has been shown to increase the level of glutathione in the liver by up to 35%.

Take a detox bath.
1 place 1 cup of Epsom salts plus 1 cup of baking soda in the tub, run the hottest water you can stand. Soak for 20 minutes and allow yourself to sweat. Epsom salts are great for removing toxins from your body and rebalancing all the minerals you lost thanks to alcohol. Here’s to feeling vibrant and hydrated again.
2. Get rid of leftovers and cheat foods.
3. Jumpstart your metabolism
Drinking herbal teas such as matcha green tea, amp up your metabolism. According to a study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, green tea is effective at promoting weight loss because of it’s high levels of catechins. So if you want to lose weight fast, I recommend drinking 1-3 cups of green tea daily.

5 slices, thinly sliced ham, cut into pieces
