Weekends are wonderful!!!! But, they can also be a time for us to be challenged by events and situations that can sabotage our desires to live a healthy lifestyle. Here are some tips to help you have a healthier weekend:
**Moderate sugary and alcohol drinks. Many people fail to realize a good portion of their caloric intake comes from beverages. Whether sports drinks or sodas, sugary beverages do little to satisfy and could cause you to eat more. A John Hopkins University study revealed that individuals lost more weight over 5 months by eliminating calories from beverages rather than solid foods.
**Start a meal with salad or broth. Instead of diving right into the main course, begin your meal with a low-fat soup or salad. But pass on creamy soups or salads topped with heavy dressings. Eating the first course reduces the amount of food you will eat during the main course.
