Hello everyone, as you go into the 4th of July weekend, where cookouts, picnics, and Patriotic food will be the flavor of the day, remember that there is no reason you can’t have a little fun and also stick to your summer health goals.
I’m more of a watermelon-on-a-hot-summer-day type of guy, but I know that hot dogs, chips, beer and even desserts will also be common fare this weekend, so just remember:
The first bite of ANYTHING is always the best.
There’s no reason you can’t have something tasty; but it’s always true that the first bite is the tastiest, and every morsel beyond that becomes progressively less appealing, as well as bringing you closer to the point of overeating–which may make you feel uncomfortable and bad about yourself come Tuesday.
So enjoy the party, but remember this rule. You’re doing yourself a favor, not only because the first few bites are the best, but they also keep you closer to your body and health ideals.
Happy 4th of July
