We have all spotted Liesl Laurie living her best life on Instagram in a bikini and wondered how she maintains such a sexy and tight figure. The former Miss SA and radio host keeps to a strict diet and she decided to share a few of her tips with us. These are the 5 foods Liesl eats to maintain that fabulous tummy!
"Avos might help you achieve your summer abs" says Liesl. Avocados are “loaded with potassium, which is a key player in ridding your body of excess sodium” she says. ''Which helps with the water weight they're also high in soluble fiber and healthy fats, which help you feel fuller on smaller portions.”
If you’re feeling fancy, try whipping up an easy guacamole recipe - But have it with rice cakes and not nachos!
"Ginger is also known for being a powerful antibacterial and anti-inflammatory food—in other words, all-around goodness for your gut, take it when you're feeling bloated."
South Africans love Watermelon and you most probably have some sitting in your fridge. Since the fruit is high in water content, Liesl explains that it helps regulate salt levels and flush out excess water.
“Tomatoes are packed with the antioxidant, lycopene, which is known to have extremely de-bloating effects,” she says.
“Oats balance the bacteria in your gut,” Laurie says. “This is known as a prebiotic effect, which improves your digestive system and works wonders to reduce bloat.”
