On a hot summer day, there is nothing better than a big dish of ice cream, or a tall glass of lemond.
But barbeques, cookouts, weddings and graduation parties could be adding unwanted pounds.
Connie Bryan from On-Site Health Soultions joined Tricia Sloma on 16 Morning News with some advice to help cut calories this summer.
Bryan suggests bringing a healthy dish to share at a backyard barbeque.
Filling up on vegetables and salad before going to a party will reduce your temptation for unhealthy choices.
Knowing proper portion sizes is important. Your portion of chicken breast should be the size of the palm of your hand.
Staying hydrated will also help you stay fill. Drink less beer and soda.
Increasing exercise and getting enough sleep can also burn calories.
