We’ve all been there: A big event or vacation is mere weeks away, and the goal of getting in shape just hasn’t happened. And while you can’t lose a pants size or develop six-pack abs overnight, there are some tweaks you can make to your daily routine that will quickly help you look your best.
By now, everyone knows that crash diets don’t work (and some are downright dangerous). But the good news is, some of the “get into shape quickly” tips actually work. Use these tips and tricks to see a noticeable difference.

By now, you’ve probably heard that the scale is not an effective measure of your progress. Muscle weighs more than fat, and building muscle often makes you look slimmer, despite what the scale says. So if you’re trying to slim down, focus more on the way your clothes fit than what the scale says.
Consider these ideas as a healthy jump start to quickly lose a few pounds.
