curl_http_post: How to minimize the data usage

I am currently using HTTP_POST with curl on my RPi like device to send data
to cloud from my IoT sensor. It consumes around 3MB of data on my SIM

Is there anything I could set in my curl/options to minimize the
data_usage? i.e. something like may be to strip away all the HTTP headers,
and to ensure only the actual data is sent across ?

Many thanks.
