I think everyone wants that flat stomach – right? Well, sorry to burst your bubble but there's actually no easy fix – soz.

The key to a flat stomach is 20% exercise, 80% diet and that's a fact. So there's no magic shake for you to get skinny before your six weeks of drinking and partying in Thailand – sorry hun. What you can do, however, is eat a decent diet and try out a few of these recipes.

We've included a breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert so you can up off that phat ass and look like a hot tamale.

This bad boy is actually vegan (I know it's a scary word) but tastes delish.

  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 3 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 60ml almond/coconut milk
