Outsmart Summer Diet Saboteurs


Smart Strategies

• Sharing is smart. Theme parks are notorious for offering jumbo-sized portions of battered, fried, and sugar-laden foods (think funnel cakes). Since everything is super-sized, be sure to share your high-calorie foods with one, or even two, other friends.

• Spoil your appetite. Eat before heading out to the amusement park. Showing up less hungry means you’ll be less tempted by all the junk once you get there.

• Get in your steps. Theme parks are ginormous, so take advantage. In fact, for extra encouragement, strap on a fitness tracker or pedometer if you have one.
