How to NOT Put On the Pounds During 4th of July
It's our Independence Day and the last thing we want to think of is our calorie intake or if we are going to put weight on.
But to some of us - we do care and we do want to tread lightly, but we don’t want to take away the fun of going to BBQ’s, parties and outings.
So what are we suppose to do?
Well let us give you some tips on how to enjoy your holiday weekend without being over critical about things.
Tip #1 - Stay hydrated
Tip #2 Try exercising at the start of your day
Tip #3 Volunteer a healthier dish to bring to the party
Tip #4 Eat the healthier foods first
Fill up on the veggies, salad and lean proteins before indulging in the chips, cracker and bread.
Tip #5 Drink a lot of water
To piggy back on Tip #1, drinking a full glass of water before you start eating will fill up your stomach and will hit your brain sensors that you are full.
It absolutely works if you haven’t tried it yet. Try drinking 2 glass of water before a big meal and see how much you can eat. It's a great dieting trick.
