7 Healthy Eating Tips to Not Gain Weight for your 4th of July BBQ!

Most people are gearing up for a fun-filled day of food, family, friends, and fireworks! I love summer BBQs but it’s not always easy to be healthy. Here are some proven tips to be healthy all while having fun and enjoying yourself!

1. Eat healthy foods first.
Watery vegetables slow digestion down with an excellent source of fiber and also low calories. Many vegetables, like broccoli, cauliflower, eggplant and spinach have a high water content of more than 90 percent!
-Add mixed vegetables to any salad dish for more nutrition, and have a veggie tray as an appetizer.
-Make your salads without the dressing and have them on the side. You are less likely to use as much and you may realize you may not even need them! Eating a salad beforehand to decrease hunger and avoid overindulging

But, Just because it is a salad does not mean it’s healthy!
Potato and pasta salads are high in saturated fats. Instead, fill your plate with fresh greens and veggies.
Fun Fact: Choose a smaller plate! You will eat less with not even noticing!

2. Eat protein with your vegetables, and you will also fill up faster.
Make chicken, steak or shrimp kabobs. Turkey burgers are an excellent substitute for burgers, or make lean 1/4 lb burgers instead of 1/2 lb. Also, a great alternative to burgers is salmon or tuna. Not only is fish leaner and healthier, but they contain heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids and are low in calories.

3. Skip the chips, crackers and bread!
Refined carbohydrates are the worst things you can eat because they offer little satisfaction, loads of calories and dangerous insulin spikes. Do yourself a favor and fill up with vegetables and protein and save your calories so you can have a dessert. :)

4. Play Games, Burn Calories
Barbeques don’t have to revolve around food, and we think it’s more fun when eating’s not the only activity for the day. Work up an appetite with old fashioned backyard games, throw the frisbeee around or even a group bike ride, or swim.
With younger kids, you can also play games like Capture the Flag or Simon Says. Create circuits with your children in your games that include these patterns: Crawl, Climb, Run, Jump/Skip, Throw/Kick and Include Games of Tag: 1-Leg - Everyone hops around on one leg, Monkey/Frog - Everyone jumps around like a monkey or frog — both the person who is ‘it’ as well as those not ‘it’
Getting more physical activity that day to help maintain better blood sugar control and you’ll burn calories all day long for you and your children!

5. Grilling Tip: Marinate Your Meat. From Cooking Light: http://www.cookinglight.com/eating-smart/nutrition-101/healthy-grilling-tips-00412000068082/
“Marinate Your Meat :Marinating meat helps to reduce carcinogens. Kansas State University researchers marinated steaks in three different mixtures of oil, vinegar, and herbs and spices. After grilling, carcinogens in the marinated steaks were cut by 57 to 88 percent. Dozens of studies confirm the effect. The marinade may create a protective barrier between the meat’s proteins and the heat of the grill, and the antioxidants in the marinade may combat the carcinogens head-on.” from Cooking Light
-Choose lemon, olive oil, thyme and spices for your grilling marinades instead of sweet and sour, barbecue or teriyaki. Just 3 tablespoons of bottle marinades can have as many carbohydrates as a slice of bread and as much sugar as a candy bar!

6. Keep dessert small Or Choose fresh fruit!
Fresh fruit is a great substitute for baked sweet treats. Serving sizes can be deceiving; for example, grapes and cherries should be eaten in moderation — just 10 grapes and 12 cherries equal 1 serving.
*The difference between a large slice of cake and a smaller slice of cake can literally be hundreds of calories. You don’t have to pass on dessert completely, but keep your portion sizes in check for this course.

7. Think before you drink
There is a place for alcohol in a healthy lifestyle, but making smart choices can be the difference between losing or gaining weight.
Just remember beer, wine, specialty drinks and cocktails are loaded with calories and lack nutrients. Moderation is key! And please drink responsibly.”

Holidays are for celebrating and are meant to be enjoyed, but you don’t have to sacrifice your health or beach body every time you attend a BBQ. Do a few of these 7 healthy BBQ tips will save you hundreds of calories that you won’t even miss, and keep your health and fitness goals on track.

Happy 4th of July!
