Weight-Loss Tips for Bikini Weather


If you want to lose a few pounds for that slimmer summer look, eat foods that have a high water content. Prepare meals based on fruits and vegetables—soups, spring stews and smoothies. An apple is 84% water (almost four ounces in a typical apple). Cooked broccoli is 91% water. High water-content foods will fill you up and hydrate you at the same time.

Restaurant tip: As soon as you’re served food at a restaurant, separate out half the meal and ask for a doggy bag. With today’s large restaurant servings, you won’t go hungry!
