    I am going on a mini vacation in a little more than 5 weeks. I workout and eat a healthy/balanced diet regularly, and consider myself to be fit. I was just wondering if there were any tips people had so that I could look extra "tight" when I hit the beach soon. Thanks in advance for your help.

    In five weeks?
    This is what you gotta do
    basically a modified carb diet
    where you can eat vegetables and fruit
    That means NO breads no cereals of any kind
    also no fried foods
    nothing fatty like in a real carb diet
    and exercise...

    I hear they can spray paint abs on you if you're really in a pinch. icon_biggrin.gif

    I guess I'm channeling ChuckyStud here, but man... you weigh 145 pounds!! How much "tighter" can you get besides just skin wraped around bone? Maybe you should be EATING before you go so you can pack on a few more pounds of muscle? I mean, you are CUTE but SKINNY! icon_wink.gif

    Have fun! Wish I were going on vaca!

    I have no posted any body pics...how do you know I am skinny? icon_razz.gif

    I know, I know, 145 seems low, but that is just an approximate number, and I definitely look lean but I am not disgustingly skinny. I should probably change it to 150 or 155. I feel like I have always weighed less than I look, and people often tell me that. I am really just looking to shock my body so that I can get that final layer of fat off of my abs in time for the beach.

    Anyway, referring to the modified carb diet listed above, would dairy have to be avoided as well?

    You look like you have the kind of complexion that burns easily. Are you going to visit a tanning salon before your vacation?

    Stock up on sunblock; you don't want to ruin your trip by getting a burn.

    Don't worry, I am always prepared when it comes to sun protection. I will most certainly have a coat of 45 on.

    As for the tanning salon...I have red hair and freckles, so I don't think I would "fair" well in a tanning booth (pun intended...sorry, couldn't resist).
