FOCUS ON: What You Eat.....And How Much, #5

Eating on the weekend can be treacherous! You need to plan for it or you might end up on a "wild eating safari!"......here are some tips:

1) Don't stop your exercise program the whole weekend! Try to work out at least one day during the weekend.

2) At your football tailgate parties or cookouts this weekend, go easy on the condiments like sauces, dips, spreads, etc. They are loaded with calories.

3) Eat every 3-4 hours to keep your metabolism ramped up and to avoid binge eating.

4) This rule always applies---if its fried, let it slide! Also, skip the fast food as much as possible.

5) Alcohol has calories too---7 calories per gram to be exact. Don't tank it too much!

6) You don't have to eat until you are stuffed!

7) Don't spend all of your time eating or drinking at the tailgate parties.

8) Snack on some walnuts or almonds before you go to the party. They are good for you and you won't arrive at the party starving.

9) Drink lots of water at the party and you will eat less.

10) Allow yourself one dessert (or a sample of a few) during the party.

11) Never skip both your Monday and Friday workouts! If you do, you are likely to go 4 straight days without working out! This sometimes turns into months and years!

Keep your FOCUS this weekend.....see ya Monday!
