6. Dandelion greens
You’ll put away the weed-killer once you hear about the anti-bloat effects of dandelions. The ubiquitous weed is called “piscialletto” in Italian and “pis en lit” in French, which translates to “bed wetter.” Why the nickname? Dandelions are a natural diuretic, and help your body flush out excess water for a leaner look in just a couple of days. Rubber sheets are optional.
Before you go picking weeds in the nearest park, though, make sure they haven’t been sprayed. Your best bet: Hit up your farmer’s market and get some dandelion greens to add to your wraps, salads, and smoothies. You can also pick up dandelion tea or dandelion root “coffee” if you’re feeling bold.Back to top
