Try the 7 Day Slim Down
We do the 7 Day Slim Down program to prep for an event or photo shoot ~ it makes us feel light and lean! We created the 7DSD specifically for a week before a big occasion and we only do it a couple times a year. We designed it to reveal the lean muscle you’ve earned. With a combo of high intensity interval training and Lean, Clean, ‘N Green recipes, you’ll boost your metabolism, feel energized, and reveal that sexy core!

Hey hey pineapple princess
Pineapple contains a digestive enzyme called bromelain that helps keep bloat at bay. Try out one of our favorite recipes with our pineapple pico HERE!
Hot stuff 🔥
Spice up your life ;) Ginger and cumin are slimming ways to add major flavor to your meals. We also love sprinkling cayenne pepper on our dinners because it raises your internal temperature and boosts your metabolism.
Try making your own spicy Fajitas HERE!
Sip on kombucha
Kombucha contains de-bloating probiotics. We love sipping on kombucha in a wine glass when we’re feeling extra fancy ;)

HIIT it girl!
Rev up that metabolism with HIIT! High intensity interval training helps you burn calories all day long to reveal your toned core.

Have a tea party
Tea contains slimming antioxidants called catechins that also aid in digestion.
Try sipping a cup of green tea daily. We’ve also been really into matcha. We break down all its benefits HERE!
If you’ve been scrolling through Insta or watching Netflix way past your bedtime, remember that getting 7 – 8 hours of sleep per night decreases levels of the stress hormone cortisol in your body. Bringing down your cortisol levels will help speed up your metabolism, steady your blood sugar levels, and reveal your abs. Plus, you’ll be feeling extra energized and kickass in your Booty Call! Night night 😴
Are you drinking water right now?
We say this all the time, but it’s so true — we want you sipping water all day every day! Keeping your body hydrated helps to keep snack attacks at bay. It also boosts your metabolism. Aim to have about half your body weight in ounces of water per day. You’ll need an extra 12-20 ounces if you’re working out that day.
We ❤️ adaptogens
All of us experience stress every now and then. High levels of stress can cause inflammation. Adaptogens, like maca, help decrease that stress, preventing unwanted inflammation and bloat. Check out our post on adaptogens and how to use them HERE!
Stand strong & confident
Proper posture is an automatic confidence booster and makes you look longer. Stand with your shoulders back and your head up to show everyone your beautiful smile. You’re gorgeous ~ stand tall and proud!
And a lil’ sunless tanner never hurt ;)
A beach-y bronze glow always makes us feel extra confident and makes your abs POP, so glow for it! Check out our step-by-step guide for the perfect even tan HERE!
