A “clean” diet isn’t a quick-fix diet—it’s a lifestyle diet. Unlike most diets, a clean diet doesn’t involve intense restriction or going hungry. You don’t have to avoid any particular food groups. Read more →
Punxsutawney Phil predicted six more weeks of winter, which means you’ve got plenty of time to start slimming down for swimsuit season (or even spring break). The key to getting lean is to combine cardio exercise with the right diet. First, you need to make sure you’re doing enough cardio to burn fat every day. Next, clean up your plate.

You won’t miss the carb-heavy bed of noodles or rice under classic cacciatore combos thanks to this recipe’s 55 grams of protein per serving!

Ta ta, tomatoes! This salsa’s gone tropical, filled with chunks of mango, colorful peppers and fresh, flavorful herbs. Scoop it up with whole-grain crackers or organic blue corn chips for a healthy, hearty snack.

Dip, dunk and heap on to your heart’s content—the whole bowl comes with just 311 calories and a little more than a single gram of fat.
