How to Look Great in Your Bikini by Labor Day

In case you forgot, Labor Day is around the corner, which means beer, bbq and babes in bikinis (that’s you!). So, if you’ve slacked off your workout regimen, but still need to look bangin’ in your bathing suit, then the answer is that you've got to get the eating under control.

You’ve got 14 days to work off the weight, so add these simple steps to your diet and feel better about yourself when you lose the cover-up (c'mon, it's only two weeks).

(Expert tip: try to wear wedges with your bikini, they make you stand up straighter, make your legs look leaner and they won’t sink into the sand)
