The weekend is never far off and for most people that means fun, relaxation and poor food choices. On average, Americans eat 500-1000 calories more on weekend days than on weekdays, without realizing it ! Those calories add up fast–you’d have to walk about 10-20 extra miles per weekend to work that off–so be mindful about your weekend food choices.
Be especially mindful on long weekends, like the Fourth of July. Make plans now to get active and have healthy options for your holiday festivities. Your weekend does not need to revolve around fattening food! How about an Independence day hike? Or re-enact Paul Revere’s famous horseback ride! How about a Boston green tea party?
Whatever you do, remember that weekends are the most important time to watch your food intake. Monday morning will feel a whole lot better if you do.
