Eat to shrink

by Gretchen Reynolds

Jackie Newgent, RD, created this nutritionally balanced plan. Pick three meals and one snack a day the first week and lose up to 6 pounds when you also do this workout. After the first week, add a second snack a day. Each morning, fill a pitcher with water, mint, and cucumber slices; sip throughout the day (black coffee and tea are OK, too).
