Tips To Surviving The Summer BBQ

By author photo Jenny Craig Team


We all know how hard it is to stay on track and fight the temptations at social events and BBQ’s, so with the outdoor season just around the corner we have some great tips that will ensure you make it through with your weight loss plan unscathed.

Master BYO – By taking your own drinks, like this delicious Mango Madness mocktail, you won’t be tempted to indulge in the kilojoule-laden alcoholic drinks. While you’re at it, take some of your own free food snacks and salads so you know you will have options.

Stick to the green – If you can’t take your own salads and sides, stick to your greens and garden salads and avoid creamy potato and pasta salads. Swap rich desserts for fresh berries and summer fruits – think watermelon, passionfruit and strawberries!

Don’t go hungry – If possible, eat beforehand. Have your Jenny Craig meal or snack before you go to avoid feeling hungry and being tempted by party foods.

Be Prepared – Go in prepared by talking to your Consultant and deciding on a plan of attack for the day.
