  • 0

You really can have it all

From Health magazine

Wouldn’t it be a dream if you could enjoy the best foods summer has to offer—and lose weight? You’re in luck: Our indulgent mix-and-match meal plan features healthied-up versions of all your warm-weather faves (even burgers and lobster rolls!). 

Couple this 1,350-calories-a-day diet with our workout plan, and you can shed up to 8 pounds (about one bathing suit size) in just two weeks. Get ready to eat, drink, and shrink.
 

Breakfast

About 400 calories (choose one daily) 

Open-Faced Caprese Omlet
Bulk up your omelet with veggies and cut back on the eggs and cheese to net an almost 200-calorie save.

Whisk together 2 large eggs; gently cook on medium-low heat in1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oilto make an open-faced omelet. Top evenly with 1/2 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheeseduring cooking. Slide omelet onto a plate, and top with 1 sliced medium vine-ripened tomato. Drizzle with 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar, sprinkle with sea salt to taste, and garnish with 8 fresh basil leaves.

Nut Butter and Nectarine Open Sandwich

By trading a bakery-size bagel for an English muffin, you’ll slash 210 calories from your morning meal.

Spread 1 tablespoon roasted almond butter onto each of 2 toasted whole-grain English muffin halves. Very thinly slice 1 nectarine and arrange on top; sprinkle with a pinch of ground ginger or cardamom.

Granola Yogurt Parfait

Use plain yogurt instead of a sugary one—and save up to 70 calories.

Layer 6 ounces plain fat-free Greek yogurt with 2/3 cup granola mixed with 1/2 cup puffed wheat cereal, and 1 sliced peach.

Grab-and-Go Egg Sandwich

Need to eat on the fly? Swing by a restaurant drive-through and order1 take-out egg sandwich(around 400 calories), such as Wendy’s Artisan Egg Sandwich with Applewood Smoked Bacon.

By choosing bacon instead of sausage, you’re cutting more than 100 calories from your breakfast. Enjoy with 12 ounces unsweetened iced tea with 1 teaspoon sugar.

Lunch and dinner

About 400 calories (choose two daily)

Turkey Cheeseburger With Guacamole
This stacked burger is piled high with veggies and is half the calories of a regular one.

Grill or pan-grill 1 small (3-ounce, about 93% lean) ground turkey patty; sprinkle with salt and black pepper to taste. Serve on 1 grilled whole-grain bunsmeared with 1 1/2 table-spoons guacamole and topped with a3/4-ounce slice of sharp cheddar cheese, 2 large red onion slices, 3 large heirloom or beefsteak tomato slices, and 2/3 cup packed baby salad greens. Serve burger with an additional cup packed extra baby greens, splashed with champagne vinegar.

Peppery Linguine With Pesto

Mixing pasta with veggies and pesto saves about 400 calories, versus digging into a heavy Alfredo entree.

Toss 1 1/3 cups cooked (2 ounces dry) whole-wheat or spinach linguine with 2 tablespoons each of the pasta cooking liquid and basil pestoThen mix with 1 cup thinly sliced red, orange, and yellow bell peppers; half of a small, very thinly sliced (crosswise) Serrano pepper; and sea salt to taste.
