35 Foods to Get You Bikini Ready

By Olivia Tarantino & The Editors of Eat This, Not That!

Don't quite feel like you're beach-body ready yet? No problem — all you have to do is put these foods on your grocery list.

Nothing jolts you to your senses like that first day of warm weather. At first you're pumped you can finally shed your layers of winter cable knit sweaters. But then it dawns on you — bikini season will be here soon and you're still in fat-mounting hibernation mode.

Don't panic. Not only is there is still plenty of time to prepare yourself, but getting yourself beach-body ready only requires a bit of sweat and the proper nutrition.

Along with working in a regular sweat — and yes, it can even just be on the weekends — introducing the following nutrient-dense foods into your diet will help tone and shape your body while assisting in rapid weight loss efforts.

Some foods dial up your metabolism so you can burn even more calories and torch belly fat, some heal your gut by offering up healthy probiotic bacteria, some decrease the stress and inflammation that's causing weight gain and bloating, some turn off your fat-storage genes, and others vanquish hunger and build muscle by filling you up with healthy fats, lean proteins, and fiber. So, get a pen in one hand and a shopping list in your other—and get to it! (Psst! Don't stress over when you'll get to the gym. "Abs are made in the kitchen!")
