Your Get-Slim Shopping List

Still trying to get rid of the belly fat that never seems to budge? Don't sweat it, ladies -- we've got you covered with a 1,500-calorie healthy eating plan you'll actually stick to and enjoy. Just a couple of reasons why we know you'll love it:

For starters, you're not stuck eating salad, salad, and more salad. With tempting options like quesadillas, pepper-crusted sirloin, and sweet potato fries to choose from, you won't feel as if you're on a diet.

Even better, you don't have to fork over cash for obscure ingredients you'll never use again. Everything on the shopping list is available at your local supermarket -- no trips to specialty stores required.

Sounds totally doable, right? Tear out the list and start shopping -- you'll be feeling thinner and healthier in a matter of days. We've done the diet math for you -- simply choose a breakfast, lunch, and dinner, plus two snacks from the mix-and-match choices to hit the 1,500-calorie goal.
