How to Slim Down Before a Big Event, According to the Kardashians' Dietitian

If you're anything like me, then anytime before an event, vacation, or really any occasion that calls for looking like a million bucks, you plan an elaborate scheme to get in shape, shop for clean eats, and start your healthy new lifestyle weeks in advance. Although you've made plans to lose weight leading up to said event, though, you conveniently throw them out the window, and a few days before, you realize it's crunch time. Crash diets aren't our thing, so you won't be finding any sort of starvation, drink this concoction of lemon, pepper, and water and only that sort of plan here. No—instead, we tapped the brain of mastermind Philip Goglia, dietitian to stars like the Kardashians, Brie Larson, and Cara Delevingne, for his quick tricks to get clients red carpet–ready without depriving their bodies.

And while these tips are great for a quick de-puff, de-bloat, and tone-up sesh before you walk the red carpet (or the sidewalk leading up to your friend's birthday bash), Goglia also has an amazing program that helps us mere mortals get in shape in one week. He calls it his G-Plan, the first-ever online seven-day meal plan for users, based on their metabolic body type. You'll just need to take the quiz beforehand so that the plan can be custom-tailored to your needs, and you're ready to go! But if you don't have seven days (or the funds to support a celebrity dietitian's advice), try the below tricks for quick fixes in a pinch.
