Danelle's Weight-Loss Plan

The Diet: "For breakfast I have a bowl of Special K with skim milk and a banana. Lunch is peanut butter and jelly on whole-wheat bread and an apple. Dinner is grilled chicken, broccoli, and brown rice or couscous."

Favorite Self-Made Snack: "I add sliced banana and crushed walnuts to a low-fat chocolate pudding cup, then top it with Cool Whip. Or I make healthy pizza: tomatoes, basil, and feta cheese on mini whole wheat pita bread."

The Workout: "I run 5 miles outdoors six days a week and strength-train for 30 minutes twice a week. Once a week, I also do judo or swim."

Bad Weather Backup Plan: "If it's rainy or cold, I go to the gym and run on the treadmill or do the elliptical machine for 60 minutes."

On Her iPod: "Korn, Stone Temple Pilots, and Rage Against the Machine"
