Episode Highlights

  • [1:01] Tip #1 - Hydration, this is especially important in summer! Don't get dehydrated, your brain can trick you into thinking you are hungry instead of thirsty.

  • [2:52] Tip #2 - Load up on fresh fruits and vegetables. Aim for 50% of your plate.

  • [4:29] Tip #3 - BBQ Season! Simple swaps to keep bbq'ing in line with your goals.

  • [5:35] Tip #4 - Alcohol. If you enjoy alcohol, then I'm not going to say not to drink, because that's probably not realistic. Alcohol does add calories, so choose lower calorie options.

  • [7:04] Tip #5 - Kick up your steps. Extra daylight hours! Take advantage and get out of your house and go for a walk.

  • [7:45] Tip #6 - Snacks. #snacklife. Pack them everywhere you go. Granola/protein bars *grab the cheatsheet for making a healthy choice below!*

  • [9:00] Tip #7 - Road trips. Like above, pack snacks! Choose non-perishable options, this can help avoid hangry car situations. What should you eat at a fast food stop?

  • [11:35] Tip of the Episode! You need to start your day off by eating breakfast, it's going to help set you up to make great, balanced decisions as the day progresses.
