No More Salt
Salt is your worst enemy. It's causing your body to retain fluids making you look soft and pudgy. There's no way to get defined looking muscles if they're covered in bloated fat.
2 liters of Water Daily
When you don't drink enough water, your body will retain fluids. It goes into a self-preservation mode. Most people that are overweight will have 5 to 15 lbs of excess fluid in their body caused by mild dehydration. After just 10 days of drinking 2 liters of water daily, your weight will drop when the 5 to 15 lbs of excess fluid leave your body.
Instead of starving yourself or counting calories, do this. Start eating six meals a day instead of three. Your metabolism will go through the roof. The fat will melt off your body incredibly fast when this happens.
It's not a bad idea to do a detox. Your digestive system needs to be working properly so your body can use up the food you eat. You'll also find that your energy levels will go way up.
This is vital to losing weight. There are some phenomenal 100% natural supplements that will curb your food cravings, increase your metabolic rate, and boost your energy levels. This should be part of any bikini body plan.

Following a documentation of your goals and genetic make-up, your next step is to decide what your rest time, repetition range, and type of exercise should be. Consult a professional that can review your documentation and give you a detailed description of what your values should be and the type of exercises you should do. I was reading the Kayla Itsines ebook and it had some bikini body guides to help you out.
Most people tend to spend a great deal of time performing 3 sets of 10 repetitions of a particular exercise, which targets one muscle group. This is good to target one particular muscle group (for muscle growth) if the weight you are using is heavy enough to restrict you to this repetition range (meaning you are not just stopping at 10 reps. because it sounds good). If you overall goal is to have a bikini body, you would benefit greatly from making sure that every exercise you perform engages as many muscles as possible not just the primary muscle you are working.
For example, a woman who want a bikini body would not perform a seated overhead press. She would perform a standing overhead press in standing with the following: feet shoulder width apart, knees positioned in a mini-squat, stomach pulled in tight, chest lifted up, shoulder blades pulled back, and eyes looking straight ahead. This is the first step to reaching your goals. If you skip this step you will be a part of the average gym member. I desire you to be above average, therefore you will have to do things that the average person will not do.
