Lose Weight With Our Four-Week Diet Plan: Week 4, Day 2

Smarter workouts, plus a sweet peach crisp!

Each weekday this month, check out BettyConfidential’s exclusive tip from top trainers and nutritionists, and take a look at the daily three-meal menu from NutriFit, a health-conscious food delivery program that works with A-list stars like Angelina Jolie.

Tip of the day

Work out harder, not longer. If you want to make your consistent activity routine longer, but can’t do it because of work and family conflicts, up the intensity of your workout. Molly Wangsgaard, RD, corporate dietitian for the Jenny Craig weight-management program, suggests revving up the intensity of your routine with intervals (short bursts of intense exercise between longer, easier periods.) For example, walk at your regular pace for 3 minutes, speed up to a fast pace/jog for 1 minute and repeat.

1/2 cup seedless grapes
