It seems that the average person emerges about 3 pounds heavier at the end of summer — why? Because while you are outside moving around, you are also partying a bit more– more as in alcohol, treats, and food overall to celebrate the sunny summer days. Here are a few of Valerie’s tips from the article. Do read the entire article as it’s filled with great tips — of which I am just listing a few recommendations for you to think about.

Labor Day Picnics and Barbecues:
Elect to start your cookout at noon or 7 p.m. — and not in the middle of the afternoon — you will save yourself thousands of extra calories.

If you are eating ribs, limit the amount of barbecue sauce (loaded with sugar) and have just one large rib or three small ones. You don’t need to put butter on your corn; even better, try eating it completely raw — your taste buds will be pleasantly surprised by its sweet natural taste, and your body by its low Glycemic Index!

Trips to the beach: Next time you head to the beach remember that you DO NOT need to bring along lots of food for a short trip.

Summer drinking: ( for those emulating the Frenc), remember that French women might not get fat simply because they don’t drink wine during the day — they’ll rather opt for a glass of Perrier Lemon. So ditch the wine and the beer and go for a calorie-free drink.
