The Cheap, Safe Metabolism Booster
Substitute green tea for coffee. Compounds in it called catechins — the same stuff that's in Enviga, the "calorie burning" soda — are believed to increase your metabolism, says New York City nutritionist Oz Garcia, Ph.D.

Celery, Spinach, Tomatoes, Lettuce, Peaches, Strawberries, Cantaloupes
These foods are at least 90 percent water, so they'll help flush out your system and keep you hydrated (assuming you're already drinking water, of course), says Los Angeles trainer Robb Parr, who currently works with the ever-fit Demi Moore. Nothing wrong with other fruits and vegetables. Even relatively dry bananas (76 percent water) are more hydrating than, say, whole-wheat bread (35 percent) or almonds (7 percent).

Knock It Off

The Nightcap
(It's two weeks — you can handle it). Your body treats alcohol as a toxin, so your liver processes alcohol calories before all others in an attempt to clean bad stuff from your bloodstream, says Kirsch. The result? The other calories you've gotten from food are more likely to be stored as fat. 

Milk and Cheese
"In my experience, most women have some sort of lactose sensitivity, which means they get bloated from even small amounts of dairy products," says Yumi Lee, a Los Angeles trainer whose clients include Julianna Margulies and Pink. "Once they stop for a couple weeks, they instantly see a difference." Don't nix calcium altogether: Take a supplement and get the nutrient from foods such as salmon and almonds.

Even high-fiber whole-wheat or multigrain bread can contribute to bloating, says Garcia. Feed your carb cravings with sweet potatoes, brown or wild rice, and wheat-free cereals.
