Summer’s High-Fat Foods
It’s summer, backyard barbecues with lots of unhealthy junk foods at the pool can pack pounds on your body.
High-Fat Barbecue Meats
Steak, cheeseburger contains fats since they are from the pattiest part of the animal. However, you’ll be just fine if you go with lean meat, such as pork tenderloin, skinless chicken breast, and lean ground beef.
Choose low-fat version of your Summer treats since most hot dogs and sausages are high in sodium.
Salads with Mayonnaise
Use light mayonnaise on your potato salad and coleslaw, or mix it with low or non-fat yogurt or organic chicken stock. Put veggies into your salad to get more fiber and healthy nutrients.
Replace your summer high-calorie, sweet alchoholic drinks with wine or mix your drink with seltzer and pure fruit juice.
Satisfying Thirst Quenchers with water
Be careful with your choice of cold drinks, drink less of sweet tea, soda, smoothies, milkshakes, or beer. Instead drink more water.
Summer Frozen Treats
Instead of big portions of frozen treats with high-fat toppings, try healthier, lower calories frozen desserts or fruit desserts, such as strawberry shortcake, fruit bars, or fudge bars.
Frighteningly Fattening Deep-Fried Foods
Skip the deep-fried foods, such as fried macaroni and cheese, fried cheesecake or fried turkey legs. Instead get cotton candy, grilled lean meat or caramel apples.
Instead put the high-fat salad toppings to a refreshing salad bowls of veggies, use grilled chicken, slices of lean meat, or eggs with light salad dressing.
Mindless High-Fat Snacking
Reduce high-fat snacking, such as potato chips, cheese nachos, movie theater popcorns or cheese puffs. Instead, snack on veggies and fruits, with light or no dip.
Weight-Gaining Fried Chicken
Forget about oily fried chicken. Instead, add the boneless and skinless chicken breasts to the grill plate.
