Gregory Joujon-Roche's Event-Day Menu

BREAKFAST
A 12-ounce "strip shake" gets your digestion working efficiently so that you drop weight fast. Mix one using these health-food-store staples:

  • 2 oz. coconut kiefer
  • 5 oz. kombucha (Joujon-Roche recommends Synergy's Cosmic Cranberry)
  • 1 oz. raw aloe
  • 1 tbsp. omega 3,6,9 blend
  • 1 tbsp. flax meal
  • 1 tbsp. super greens powder
  • Ice for texture and temperature (optional)

Then mix a "master cleanser" to sip on throughout the morning. To 32 ounces of water, add:
  • Juice of one fresh lemon
  • 1 oz. fresh ginger juice
  • A shake of cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp. of Joujon-Roche's Fat-Burning Lemonade (make your own by combining a pinch of L-carnitine tartrate and D-ribose powders)

Eat nothing else until noon. If you can't last, eat 10 raw almonds to tide you over.

LUNCH
A big green salad with half an avocado. For dressing, squeeze a lemon or lime on top and add a small amount of olive oil. Make a second master cleanser drink for the afternoon.

DINNER
If your night out won't include a full meal, steam vegetables like leafy greens, mushrooms, and fennel with a half-cup of quinoa, then add olive oil and a tiny shake of Celtic sea salt (it has all the essential minerals table salt lacks). Chow down an hour before heading out. Then make a second strip shake to drink before leaving.

AT THE PARTY
Keep your cocktails simple - choose vodka-sodas or white wine, two drinks max. Avoid dark alcohol and specialty drinks (if it has a cutesy umbrella, pass), which can make you look and feel bloated.

Go from flab to fab! Ditch the Spanx and trim down with these last-minute pre-party tricks from top celebrity trainers.
