I myself am in this situation, and I doubt I am the only one whom it has happened to. You find out about an event only a few days in advance or you have some kind of a diet disaster (hello potluck and cookies on top of not going to the gym in a month) the day before a photo shoot like me… So, for me and any future victims of last minute beautifying, let us compile all of our last minute raw food, raw beauty knowledge! (PS- my two major issues are trying to keep my tiny belly tinier until 6pm tomorrow sans starvation and controlling my week and a half bikini shadow!) : : : Here are a few of the things I’m trying (my shoot includes digitals aka super small bikini on which my body and measurements will be judged for jobs)
-Fennel seed tea for bloating (use warm not hot water and add orange juice or zest to give it some zing)
-Ginger root before meals to aid digestion and avoid bloating
-Green Smoothie only consisting of greens and one fruit for breakfast
-Munch on fennel to avoid hunger and act as a diuretic
-Drink loads of water and attempt to fast 12 hours the day before (overnight… last thing you eat, don’t eat again until that time the next day to let your body clear out a bit)
-Use coconut oil to smooth your dry skin, leave some on the ends of your hair as well, then wash out the next morning.
-Catch up on your reading in the steamroom and take cold showers between sessions
-Use a natural self tanner (origins sells one, I don’t know of any raw ones) and it will make you look more toned.
