Warmer weather is upon us, but it’s not too late to get beach-body ready! Shed those excess winter pounds and tighten up your muscles by taking part in this 6-week diet and exercise plan to prepare for spring break. You’ll be pleasantly surprised at how much of a difference six weeks of healthy eating and regular exercise can make in your appearance!
6-Week Diet and Exercise Plan to Get Ready for Spring
We designed this program to be effective, but it’s also customizable to your goals and needs. We realize that not everyone enjoys the same foods and participates in the same workout routines, so we made sure to provide you with plenty of mix-and-match options!
As stated above, transforming your body requires a consistent improvement in both your diet and workout regimen. By eating the correct amount of nutritious foods and performing the right forms of exercise, you’ll be more than ready to hit the beach come spring break!
Optimizing Your Diet
You need to understand that it is very difficult to outwork a bad diet. If you’re eating unhealthy foods too often, or just too much food in general, it’s going to be extremely challenging to lose weight and shape up.
Here’s the bottom line of weight loss: You need to consume fewer calories than you are using. This doesn’t mean that you have to starve, though; your dietary caloric deficit can be whatever you want it to be (within reason, of course). We do not recommend creating a deficit greater than 500 calories per day.
No one wants to partake in a diet that makes them feel hungry or deprived. Attempting to follow a program like that is not only risky, but it’s challenging to sustain long-term, and these types of diets often lead to failure. At SkinnyMs., we have dozens of well-designed meal plans that can help you lose weight. For this 6-week plan, we want to give you the freedom to choose which plans are right for you and your lifestyle. When you enjoy what you do (and eat), you are much more likely to succeed!
What to do:
Below you will find an assortment of our best and newest meal plans. Look through them and choose a couple that you’d like to try over the next six weeks. The goal here is to give you the freedom to try new and exciting recipes while still ensuring that you’re eating the appropriate amounts (and types) of food.

Ramping Up Your Workout Routine
A proper diet will set you on the right track, but a solid workout routine will keep you going! Exercising (on top of a healthy diet) can significantly increase the amount of weight that you can lose. One form of exercise is not necessarily superior to another; it’s all about what you can sustain long term.
What to do:
Over the next six weeks, you will also choose a couple of workout programs. Again, if you find one that you really enjoy, feel free to repeat it! Additionally, if you’d like to participate in more than one at a time, you are more than welcome to go for it.
