Lunch Come lunchtime, skip the microwaved food and carb-heavy take-out options and opt for a healthy salad. And to make your lunchtime more bikini ready, make sure you're topping your salad with protein. "Protein dispersed throughout every meal will allow you to keep the blood sugars regulated and thereby allow your body to burn fat for fuel," says Zerling. Salmon, lean turkey meat, chicken breast, or egg whites are all filling options.
If a salad just won't cut it, try redesigning your sandwiches. "Turn your lunchtime sandwich into a healthy wrap, or swap any bread for lettuce, and swap mayo for avocado," suggests Zerling. Ware also suggests branching out from run of the mill iceberg lettuce and adding kale and other vegetables like broccoli and cauliflower.
