Get Rid of Bloat in Just 24 Hours

Written by Dr. Kellyann Petrucci

Another holiday has come and gone, and there’s a good chance you’re feeling more over-stuffed than that turkey you just ate. Yep, it’s time for another holiday tradition: post-holiday bloat. If you’re suffering from this problem right now, don’t worry—I have the solution for you. It’s fast, easy, and painless… and it really works!

Here’s the deal. After guiding thousands of weight loss transformations over the last two decades, I know that success often results not from what you do, but from what you don’t do. In this case, one of the best ways to get rid of that holiday bloat quickly is to simply avoid eating for brief periods of time—a strategy called mini-fasting.

Don’t get me wrong. I’m not talking about starvation—not even close. I’m talking about a simple strategy that allows you to:

  • Lose your bloat in 24 hours
  • Boost your immunity
  • Get your energy back
  • Burn off fat fast
  • Rejuvenate your skin

If you went off the rails this holiday and you want to get back on track, this strategy is for you!

The mini-fasting lowdown

When you mini-fast, you restrict the amount of time you allow for eating during a day. Basically, you simply compress your meals into an eight-hour “eating window.” Most people who practice mini-fasting report that 16 hours of fasting feels just right — you get hungry, but not too hungry.

What’s more, on my mini-fasting plan, you can indulge in up to two cups of warm, luscious bone broth during your fasting periods. This will satisfy your cravings while you’re melting off that fat—and you can make your broth easily using the turkey carcass that’s sitting in your fridge.

Here are the four most popular eight-hour “eating window” schedules:

  • 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.
  • 11 a.m. – 7 p.m.
  • Noon – 8 p.m. (my personal favorite)
  • 1 p.m. – 9 p.m.

Now, you can’t just eat any old thing during this time period. The foods you choose during your eating window will have a major impact on whether your mini-fasting plan works. 

Here’s my Smart Pyramid showing you the foods you can eat. They include lean meats, poultry, fish, and eggs; non-starchy vegetables (load up on these!); small amounts of fruit; and healthy fats like olive oil, avocados, coconut oil, nuts, and clarified butter.

Smart Pyramid

Do a quick mini-fast once or twice this week, sticking to these “yes” foods during your eating windows, and you’ll be amazed at how quickly you’ll get back into your skinny jeans. It’s the best way I know to help you lose your holiday-bloat!

Keep thinking Big and living BOLD!
