Margot snatched the divine little recipe of her grandmother who all her life maintained a mermaid silhouette. So when you filled up on wine and saucisson: go for a « BAB » evening.

The concept? Replace your dinner with a big bowl of large curd farmer cheese and banana chunks.

It will fill you up and it’s super cocooning. Especially when you are watching a series in your sofa.

The even more sexy alternative? Replace farmer cheese with Frozen Yogurt, the delicious 0% ice cream.

To top it all over: drink a big glass of warm lemon juice every morning

Since she’s constantly testing restaurants and sipping cocktails in new bars, Elodie has suddenly discovered her tummy is a little bloated which really puts a damper on the moral…

Here’s your massive detox weapon to loose a good little kilo and that extra flab in 2 days

Morning: drink a bottle of cold Hépar before rushing off for a 40 to 50 mn exercise gym session on an empty stomach. It cleanses instantly and makes up for straying.

In restaurant mode: the idea is to eat in quantity rather than admit you are on a diet.

Go for:

- a seafood platter (without bread, no mayo, obviously) and a glass of champagne

- raw fish + fruit for dessert

If you can choose your own restaurant: head for YOOM, our darling rendez-vous for dim-sums.

Their menu: hot tea + hakao, their delicious very light shrimp raviolis). It really fills you up …
