If you fell behind on your tracking at some point this year and gained unwanted weight, we're here to help.

We’ve put together a great challenge to help you slim down in time for Labor Day. For 30 days, you will track your breakfast, lunch and dinner; drink eight glasses of water; and walk or run.

How will this help you slim down in 30 days?

People who track their calories and physical activities enjoy greater success losing weight and keeping it off for good! Drinking eight glasses of water today prevents you from overeating because it fills you up and it staves off thirst, which is often mistaken for hunger. Plus, it's been proven that even one minute of intense cardio can positively impact your health.

Make Being Healthy a Habit

Use our 30-Day Slim Down Challenge Calendar to help you stay focused on your goals.

With the LIVESTRONG.COM MyPlate Calorie Tracker — available on desktop and for iOS and Android devices — you can track it all:

-Daily meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner) and snacks
