First, Harley Pasternak says get up and walk, and use an activity monitor. He said you should strive for a total of 14,000 steps a day, and wearing an activity monitor makes it easier to get in as many steps a day as you need.
Second, drink a gallon of cold water a day. Harley Pasternak says this tip can help you burn up to 100 extra calories a day. Plus, you’ll need plenty of hydration for all the walking you’ll be doing.

Next, Harley Pasternak has some exercises to do to help you slim down. He says you should do four sets of 20 of the following exercises: reverse lunges, single armed dumbbell rows, stiff legged dead lifts, and lying dumbbell tricep extensions. Also, do four sets of minute planks. These exercises work all parts of your body to help you slim down.
Next, Harley Pasternak said you need to say goodbye to baked goods. The extra calories and carbs keep the weight that you don’t want, and cutting it out of your diet will help you lose weight.
Finally, say hello to green smoothies. These smoothies are packed with nutrients and energy to keep you going through your day.

Two normal women, Justine and Jamie, started following Harley Pasternak’s advice in hopes to get in shape for summer. After a week, they said the hardest part was sticking to the diet, and being disciplined in eating. I can’t blame them, I’d miss baked goods too!
Both Justine and Jamie had already lost a little bit more than an inch in only a week, and they feel great. Jamie lost seven pounds in nine days. I guess it doesn’t take a ridiculous regime to get in shape.
