Summer is almost here! For many, Memorial Day is the start of warm weather, shorts, sun, parties…and lots and lots of delicious food.
If you’re headed to a barbecue this weekend, have fun! Eat well! But…know that you can enjoy yourself and manage to still fit into those shorts and cute summer dresses.
Here are a few healthy Memorial Day tips:
1. Snack before you go. Why? Because if you show up starving, you’ll overeat. Not only that, but you’ll more than likely choose the higher-calorie and higher-fat foods.
Also, if you force yourself to not eat all day prior to a party, you’ll slow down your metabolism, meaning that you’ll potentially gain more weight as you’re eating those second and third helpings of potato salad and burgers.
