But there's a reason that classic standbys never get rotated off the list of slim-down tactics—they never fail. One trick that is by no means new, yet remains a secret weapon among celebs, is a debloat cocktail made simply of lemon and apple cider vinegar. "In the days leading up to an event, I do a lot of apple cider vinegar with lemon to make sure there is no bloating when I get into my dress," spilled country artist Kelsea Ballerini.
So what's so cleansing about a lemon and apple cider vinegar cocktail, anyway?
And what's more is when you mix it with apple cider vinegar, you're getting double the benefits. According to Reader's Digest, apple cider vinegar contains acetic acid, which suppresses your appetite, increases your metabolism and reduces water retention. Basically, you won't be as hungry, what you do eat will be metabolized faster and you won't be carrying around extra bloat. It basically has the opposite effect of eating salt, and the results are relatively instantaneous.
