Weight Loss Tip: For the best nutritional value, be sure not to overcook your vegetables. Simply steaming them for 10 minutes or so is usually plenty to get the right texture and retain the most in flavor and nutrition. Whatever you do, don't boil your veggies for an extended period of time. This robs them of nutritional value.

Step 1: Drink vinegar
Drink two tablespoons of unfiltered apple cider vinegar before lunch and dinner, either straight or diluted in water. That’s what Fergie of the Black Eyed Peas credits for her toned tummy.
Step 2: Boil eggs
Snack on the whites of hard-boiled eggs whenever you’re hungry. That’s how Heidi Klum maintains her supermodel figure.
Dieters who ate two eggs for breakfast lost more weight than those who had a bagel of equal calories.
Step 3: Sip dandelion tea
Replace your java habit with dandelion leaf tea. Gwyneth Paltrow and Madonna are both fans because it’s a diuretic that flushes away water weight.
Step 4: Simmer some soup
Try the oldie-but-goody cabbage soup diet: make a big pot of cabbage soup and eat mostly that for seven days. Jaime Pressley says it helped her shed her post-partum pounds. Liz Hurley also follows a soup diet, but makes hers watercress.
