Summer Tips - How to Eat Healthy at a BBQBy Jenny Craig
We all know how hard it is to stay on track and fight the temptations at social events and BBQ’s, so with summer here we have some great tips that will ensure you make it through with your weight loss plan unscathed.
By taking your own drinks, like this delicious mint julep mocktail, you won’t be tempted to indulge in the calorie-laden alcoholic drinks. While you’re at it, take some veggies to grill on the barbecue and other Unlimited Free Foods so you know you will have options.
Stick to the green
If you can’t take your own Jenny Craig foods, stick to greens, garden salads and avoid creamy potato and pasta salads. Swap rich desserts for fresh berries and summer fruits – think watermelon, passion fruit and strawberries!
Don’t go hungry
If possible, eat beforehand. Have your Jenny Craig meal or snack before you go to avoid feeling hungry
and being tempted by party foods.
Go in prepared with the Polite, Reason, Polite tactic. It allows you to have a cordial way to say no when friendly peer pressure occurs. For other ideas talk to your consultant for a plan of attack for the day.
