Every year around the same time, you're bombarded with dozens of quick-fix diets to help you slim down for summer.

While there is probably some truth to each of these, and they probably work for many people, fad diets can result in yo-yo dieting, malnutrition, and ultimately weight gain.

If you want to get in shape, it's better for you to change your lifestyle overall using some or all of the following tips.

1. Count Your Macros

Counting your macros is a good way to monitor what you eat without following a strict new meal plan.

Macros are carbohydrates, proteins, and fats.3

Depending on your specific desires and needs, you can work with a nutritionist or just do the research on your own to find out how many of each macronutrient you should eat per day.2

This allows for more flexibility (no more smoothies-and-salads only diets) and regularity at the same time.

2. Use an App

If you know what to do, but you simply don't do it, try using an app to keep track of your eating and exercise habits.

I personally recommend My Fitness Pal;

it's very user-friendly and allows you to follow your friends who also use the app.2

With My Fitness Pal, you can keep track of your calories, macros, and other nutrients like vitamins and minerals.

3. Focus on Building Muscle

The bodies we women admire are often lean, ultra-feminine bodies with seemingly no fat or muscle.

But the truth is you shouldn't shy away from building muscle even if you are trying to attain or maintain a slim figure.

The more muscle you have, the higher your resting metabolism is, which means you will burn more calories throughout the day and, consequently, lose weight!

So hit the gym and start pumping some ironβ€”you won't regret it!
