Reason to get out there and buy a hot new bikini, we say!

The diet rules

1 Follow this diet for a fortnight, alternating recipes during the second week.

2 Start the day with a cup of hot water and lemon. Drink still water to flush out toxins and encourage lymphatic drainage, and sip on detoxifying nettle, ginseng and dandelion teas.

3 Eat three main meals and two snacks every day to keep blood sugar levels stable.

4 Feast on cellulite-busting berries, leafy green veg and raw foods as much as possible. Instead of shop bought salad dressings, make your own with balsamic vinegar, lemon juice and olive oil.

5 Eat Omega 3’s and unlock fat trapped in your cells. Oily fish, pumpkin seeds, flaxseeds, sunflower seeds, walnuts and avocados.

6 Detox! No sugar, salt, saturated fats, red meat, refined carbohydrates or alcohol.
