There's no time like summer for shedding pounds. Consider the inducements: long, warm days that are ideal for exercising al fresco; markets overflowing with fresh, healthy produce; and, of course, that swimsuit that you're rocking at the shore or pool. "Hot weather can also tone down your appetite, making it easier to eat light," says Jackie Newgent, R.D.N., author of 1,000 Low-Calorie Recipes and creator of our three-month plan.
Whether you're on the last lap of the diet or just getting started (Check out month one here.), you'll love these fast, tasty meals, devised with four different types of eaters in mind—gourmet, gluten-free, vegetarian, and on-the-go. Pair them with our Summer SHAPE Up Workouts and you'll be looking good long after the season ends.
