Mix and match delicious low-calorie meals on this printable diet plan (healthy recipes included!) that can help you lose 10 pounds
The weather's warming up, which means you probably have one thing on your mind: bikinis! Our twelve-week Summer Shape Up workout plan, which launched in the May issue and goes through August, will help you burn and firm. But if you want to see results fast, you need to fuel your workouts with belly-flattening foods. Follow this 1500-calorie plan while doing this month's fat-torching moves and you'll lose up to 10 pounds-and see results by the end of this week!
Here's how it works: All the breakfasts, lunches, dinner, and snacks are 400 calories, so you can mix and match any meal, any time of the day (who doesn't love breakfast for dinner?). Stick to three meals and two snacks each day, and be sure to drink at least 72 ounces of water every day.
