If we could get weight off as fast as we put it on, it would be a perfect world. Slimming down in a day is possible in some ways as there are tricks to make your body appear smaller and habits you can incorporate to lose a couple pounds in a 24-hour period. Drinking more water, choosing the right wardrobe, getting a few extra hours sleep and even standing up straight can help you slim down in a day.
Turn up the water bottle. Think "8 x 8" and drink eight glasses of water daily, eight ounces per glass. Not only does this flush toxins from your body, it also helps increase weight loss. You will appear slimmer right away because you will not be bloated from retaining excess fluids.
Improve your posture. Stand up straight with your shoulders back and head held high; you will immediately appear slimmer. Improved posture not only makes you look leaner, it also results in improved confidence. When you stand straight, you naturally tend to pull your stomach in by tightening those abdomen muscles.
Wear it well. Dress in a way that flatters your figure and you will instantly look slimmer. Choose clothing that fits well, not too tight or too loose. Ditch horizontal stripes that make you appear wider. Accentuate the positive attributes of your body shape with styles that draw attention to those areas and steer away from clothing that emphasizes areas you would like to improve. For instance, if you have large thighs, you would not want to wear a pair of skinny jeans that focus on your legs.
Lift the sag. Women can immediately look 10 pounds lighter with the right bra. If your breasts sag, find a well-made, supportive bra that fits properly. When the twins are up where they belong, you will stand taller and automatically feel slimmer.
Sleep it off. Get plenty of rest and you will look and feel slimmer. Lack of sleep makes you appear bloated and heavier. Adequate sleep also helps you lose weight faster. As your body goes into a deep sleep mode, a growth hormone is secreted. The more growth hormone in your system, the better your muscle mass, which aids in calorie burning.
