Beat the Summer Bulge

Summer vacation, family cookouts, and relaxation do NOT have to end in weight gain. Here are some simple ways to enjoy yourself and maintain great health!


  • Exercise/get moving every day - If you have access to a gym, exercise 30 minutes each day. Or, get creative: take a walking tour of your new environment; go for a nature hike; bike ride…just explore!


  • Add veggies/fruit to your 2 meals every day.


  • Stay hydrated (at least 8 glasses of water per day).


  • Focus more on experiences than food (Unless you’re in NOLA, then I can’t help you!)


  • When dining out, put half of your meal in a to-go box to avoid overeating.


  • Consume lean protein and fiber throughout the day to keep you feeling full and energize.


  • Have your last meal/snack at least 2 hours before bed.


  • Avoid mindless snacking. Don’t eat just because you’re on vacation. Keep your WHY in mind at all times!
