Sculpt sexy abs, legs, and arms and lose one pound of fat this week with our customized plan: a point-based exercise and diet program with everything you need to reach your goals.

Find Your Perfect-Body Equation

How much exercise do you really need to get slim and strong? Your doctor may tell you one thing, the trainer at the gym another, even Uncle Sam has recently joined the fray with the USDA's 2005 Dietary Guidelines. But we've got the simple solution to your perfect-body equation: a point-based exercise and diet program with everything you need to reach your goals.

Here's the plan: Instead of counting calories or minutes, you'll accumulate points. (Each point equals 100 calories.) You'll earn them by doing the workouts created by Morgan Luzier, director of Balance, a fitness studio in Minneapolis, and by following some nutrition and lifestyle tips. Add it all up and by four weeks you'll start to see a lean, sexy body you'll love!
