It's a little more work than a quick contour session and requires a bit more dedication, but planks are a simple way to tone up your entire body while on the couch.

Elevating your heels to make your leg muscles look more prominent and defined is one of the oldest tricks in the book. Strap on your favorite nude pumps and you're golden.

4. Pass on the salt.

Foods that have salt, dairy and grain can cause some intense bloating. Start your day off with some hot water with a slice of lemon to kickstart your digestive system.

5. Show off some skin!

A good rule of thumb is exposing as much skin as you can between chin and chest that you can get away with (don't blame us for any work code violations though!). The open triangle gives off the illusion of a longer and slimmer body and districts from the midsection.
