We’ve all seen the articles and posts preaching how to get a flat stomach overnight in preparation for the beach/pool the next day. Listing all the “detoxing” foods and beverages you should consume and all the “bad” bloat-inducing foods and beverages you should avoid.

As we American’s get ready for 4th of July, give yourself permission to not go on a pre-bathing-suit-day diet. You’re not going to heal your relationship with food and your body in one day, but use this holiday as practice and keep practicing throughout the summer. It gets easier!
