Independence Day is a great time to celebrate everything that’s great about America with friends and family. That means cooking, eating, drinking, and generally enjoying a holiday that falls smack-dab in the heart of the American summer.
But, as with any holiday party, it’s easy to lose control of one’s diet. So, how can you keep your calories down and stay safe this Independence Day? Read on to find out…
1. Use the Barbecue
If you’re looking to host an Independence Day party but don’t want to throw a wrench in your plans to stay trim or lose weight, consider doing most of your cooking using the barbeque.
Why? Because fat will naturally run off the meat you cook using the grill. Compare that to cooking in a pot or pan, where the fat contained in meat has nowhere to go, causing it to soak into the food and make your meal less healthy.
