Friends having a barbecue

When it comes to bad-dieting days, most of us think of Thanksgiving and Christmas. And yes, they’re definitely high-alert days. But the summer season has its own hazards, like the (literally) millions of high-fat hot dogs that magically appear on grills across the country.

  1. These are good tips – esp. steering clear of macaroni and potato salad! Besides, they can go bad in the hot weather unless they’re properly prepared and displayed…

  2. Excellent advice! The kind they give at Weight Watchers. So yes, Ladies, this works!
    You can also offer to make some sugarless sun tea ahead of time & bring that.

  3. This is all pretty “duh” stuff. Anyone with common sense would know not to overeat and that green salad is better than potato. Very disappointing article.

  4. I think that there was an important aspect of drinking plenty of water that was missed here: hydration. Not only are alcoholic drinks caloric, sugary, and likely to take a whack at your decision making abilities, but they also zap your body’s hydration and in the hot-hot-heat, this can be dangerous. If you do decide to indulge in a cocktail, have a TON of water, too! Bonus – being hydrated helps with weight loss too, as water retention can happy if you lose too much.
