Whether we are ready or not, whether we want it or not, summer is stealthily approaching, and with it, the season of swimsuits and “on sight” abdomens, more or less carved. You still have time to get rid of unsightly fat from the belly and flaunt your flat belly at the beach.

Your diet should include fruits and vegetables high in fiber, such as apples, strawberries, plums, beans, broccoli, carrots and cauliflower. Eat many low-fat proteins such as chicken and fish, and complex carbohydrates like brown rice, whole wheat, leafy green vegetables, whole pasta, etc.
Say goodbye (at least for 3 months) to fried foods, fast food, sugar and processed foods.

Then drink 200 ml of juice from fruits and vegetables (organic), each 4 hours, alternated with one cup of tea of burdock, dandelion leaves or red clover.
