Now while we wish we could gift you all with this ultra fab prize there will be only one winner. In lieu of this we have a few Haute Body tips (from Allure) to keep you all fit and sexy for the impending Bikini season. Good luck to all the entrants and remember drink responsibly!! 


Say NO to salt. Sodium—including the kind found in processed foods like microwave products and canned soup—is one of the biggest bloating culprits because it makes your body retain water. Eat fresh ingredients, and try seasoning your meals with fresh herbs instead. 

Faux is OUT. You're probably avoiding sugar after that entire box of chocolate you had last week, but the artificial sweeteners found in sugar-free gum and diet sodas contain sugar alcohols like sorbitol, mannitol, and lactitol that are difficult for the stomach to digest, causing an excess of air and bloating.

Sip on H20. Natural diuretics, in solid or liquid form, can help flush bloating. Some great options: coconut water, green tea, and vegetables with a high water content like asparagus, cucumber, and fennel. Dietician Lauren Slayton also suggests cranberry juice, but to avoid the added sugar, she recommends only the unsweetened kind, mixed with four parts water.

Start Sweating. Sweating alone won't flush bloat, but exercises that focus on your abdomen, like yoga and twists, work your internal organs and can help you digest your meals more easily.

Pop it. Even if you aren't intolerant, food sensitivities to things like lactose or gluten can lead to bloating. If you think that might be the case, experiment with supplements like Lactaid or Beano, and see if the swap makes a difference.
