Three Weeks to Summer Shorts Plan

Let’s face it, the thought of stripping off the layers and revealing, pale, bare flesh is enough to make most of us a little anxious.

Scrubbing, buffing and a little fake tanning will help with the summer body of course. But what about if you could go on your hola a good few pounds lighter? Most of us would feel better and have a bit more confidence on the beach.

So we asked our favorite dietitian Juliette Kellow for a plan to make the most of those last few weeks before the holiday, here’s the plan.

Three Weeks to Summer Shorts is an easy-to-follow three-week diet that’s designed to help you lose half a stone (7lbs / 3.5kg). Better still, it’s suitable for most people.

You can add the Summer Shorts Plan straight into your Food Diary in WLR (take a free trial if you want to try this), once it’s where you can easily change bits of it to suit your tastes whilst still keeping on track to lose the weight.


How to Lose the Most Weight in 3 Weeks


How much it’s possible to lose will depend on your starting weight. Heavier people will lose weight more quickly on this plan because of the relatively low number of calories in comparison to what’s needed for maintenance.

You can maximize weight loss by burning up some extra calories through exercise, or simply moving more. (Think to pace around the kitchen while you’re waiting for the kettle, or always using the upstairs loo, etc.)

Whether you’ve come to WLR to lose weight for your summer holiday or want to kick start a longer-term eating plan to help you shift several stones, this 3-week diet plan provides an easy way to get started.

The plan will also be useful if you’re already on the road to losing weight, but feel your motivation beginning to slip. The 3 weeks of focus will help you get back on track and leave you feeling inspired, as well as half a stone lighter!

How to Lose a Stone

If you want to use this easy diet plan to lose a stone, most people will need to follow it for 6 or 7 weeks. It’s very healthy and has plenty of variety to help you stick to it.

Heavier people may find it only takes a month or so, for the reason stated above.

So forget about hiding those bulges under long baggy clothes. Instead, start following our plan today and in just three weeks you’ll feel cool, comfortable and more confident in shorts, t-shirts, and swimsuits.

Here’s what to do…

  • It couldn’t be easier! Over the next three weeks, simply follow the daily menu plans. It’s fine to swap the order around to fit in with your lifestyle – for example, you may prefer to start your diet with the meals given for day 3, followed by day 6 and so on.
  • You may repeat your favorite daily menu in place of one of the others or swap individual meals from one daily menu to the next if you don’t like some of the choices given.
  • In addition to the daily meal plans, choose ONE snack every day. You may choose from either the SAVE (100 calories) or SPLURGE (250 calories) snacks – remember though, the more times you choose the SAVE option, the more weight you’ll lose!
  • Each day, have 275ml/½pint skimmed milk to use in tea and coffee, to drink on its own or to make into a smoothie using fruit from the menu plans. Milk is packed with calcium, needed for strong, healthy bones so it’s important to have this every day.
  • Remember, portion size matters! All teaspoon and tablespoon measurements should be level, one small can is equivalent to around 200g, and jacket potatoes should weigh around 175g/6oz.
  • Add plenty of vegetables or salad to meals. You should eat five different servings of fruit and veg every day to boost your intake of fiber, vitamins, and minerals. It’s fine to sweeten fruit with a little artificial sweetener if liked.
  • Drink eight glasses of water each day, water really helps with weight loss. It’s also fine to drink tea, coffee, herbal tea, and sugar-free squashes.
  • For even more focus on eating to get your body ready for the beach, see my holiday body diet tips.

How many calories does the diet provide?

Each daily menu, together with the milk allowance, adds up to 1,150 calories. Choosing a SAVE (100 calorie) snack takes this up to 1,250 calories; choosing a SPLURGE (250 calories) snack takes it up to 1,400 calories.

It’s up to you whether you choose SAVE or SPLURGE, but as a general guideline, if you have less than 1st to lose you should opt for the SAVE snack, while if you have more than 1st to lose, you should choose the SPLURGE snack.

Finally, as this is a short-term three-week plan, you may find it contains fewer calories than you’ve been having each day. Once you’ve completed the diet, you should go back to your usual daily calorie allowance recommended by WLR.
