Fox news published an article with this title and, honestly, it initially took me by surprise. I would have thought bathing suit season would be a time when people are most mindful of their eating and exercise habits. After some thought, though, between vacations, weekly BBQ’s, and family trips to the local creamery, it’s easy to see how it can become a veritable minefield for some of us.
While I don’t disagree with the article (if you missed it above, read it here), I think these “tips” work better for people who’ve already adopted a wellness plan. Since they’d likely skip ice cream anyway, at least having a trick to curb the craving would help (yes, even those of us that say ‘no’ actually WANT to say yes). If you’re not already holding the reins tightly, good luck sipping tea over a double scoop of chocolate.
The better advice would be to start mapping our your health and wellness plan now. Once you’re prepared to correctly navigate the pitfalls of BBQ’s and dining out on vacation, you can then worry about how to properly design your salad plate (as they suggest).
