Back in January I blogged about Bon Appétit magazine’s new year cleanse, a healthy 2-week plan for post-holiday detox. The best part about the plan – aside from the detailed meal ideas for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks, and the user-friendly shopping guides – was the fact that every recipe on there looked absolutely delicious, so it was hardly a “diet” in the usual sense of the word.
Well, if any of you are looking for something similar to get you bikini-ready, you’re in luck. Food&Wine magazine has put together a 4-week diet plan with similarly delicious-looking and healthy but wholesome recipes. Capped at a daily intake of 1,400 calories, this plan was originally created as January diet, but it seems to have re-surfaced in the latest F&W newsletter in preparation for the impending arrival of spring and summer. And it’s so much better to get started now in order to tone up gradually, rather than resort to metabolism-busting crash diets at the last minute. The objective is “to show it’s possible to eat something delicious every single day and still lose weight.” Agreed. It’s possible, it’s easy, and it has never tasted better!
In good health,
