The 5 day emergency bikini plan

1 of 5 1/5


If you booked your Caribbean yacht vacation to escape the cold and dark of January at home but indulged a little too much over the party season, chances are you're probably not feeling quite beach-ready at the moment. There's nothing like the chance to relax in a tropical destination on your own superyacht but hectic post-Christmas schedules can leave you with little time to prepare. Leading nutritionists and trainers give Lucia Berni the lowdown on looking brilliant in the best bikinis – even when you have less than a week to go.


David Kirsch, who has trained yacht-loving models Kate Upton, and Heidi Klum, recommends “eating five meals between 7am and 7pm as this will help speed up your metabolism”. Aim for breakfast, lunch and dinner with a snack morning and afternoon. A protein shake or handful of almonds with lean protein will work as one of the snacks.

Nutritionist Ian Marber suggests “a low-carb, high protein diet for five days, though it’s not good to stick to this long term. Choose as many green vegetables as possible (less sugar)”.

Trainer and author James Duigan, who has trained Elle Macpherson and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, reminds us: “Avoid alcohol. It’s your worst enemy when you are trying to get into shape and just makes you sluggish and bloated.” Remember to snack wisely. Duigan advises turkey slices, nuts or blueberries.
