DeliverLean Prepping for Bikini Season With Light Meal Plans (Recipe)

Unlike our northern brethren (many of whom are currently expecting buckets of snow), South Floridians are privy to beach days throughout the year.

Even so, it gets a bit chilly -- and lately rainy -- through the winter month, which sends many of us slightly-weathered-sun-worshipping-skantliy-clad-folks indoors for weeks on end.

FYI: if it's below 70 degrees, we do wear clothes (mostly).

With mid-February here, we've hit the halfway mark to warmer sunnier weather, which means the bikinis and board shorts are about to come out again.

You should probably do something about that winter beer belly.

DeliverLean is now offering three-day Spring Forward Meal Plans designed with 1,200 to 1,400 calories to help stimulate your metabolism and increase weight loss.

We got them to divulge one of their light recipes for coconut shrimp cakes with pineapple salsa for you to make at home.
