Summer Barbecues

This summer when you have friends, relatives and neighbors over for a backyard BBQ…consider this…a typical BBQ is about 2,260 calories.
That’s not even including dessert!!!

Burgers, hot dogs, macaroni salad, potato salad and potato chips are the most popular BBQ items. Throw in dessert and a cool drink and you top out at almost 3,000calories…Yikes!

If you tried to work off those calories you would have to spend hours at the gym. Who has that much time in their day to devote to exercise? Not me!

I have a menu for you to try for your next BBQ that will give you more variety and better health choices but still all the BBQ flavor.

First, exchange the meat burgers for lean turkey or veggie burgers. You can save calories by skipping the bun and using mustard instead of mayonnaise.

Second, instead of hot dogs try poultry sausages.

Third, try chicken, fish and seafood over steak or ribs.

Fourth, grill your vegetables. Pour a small amount of Extra Virgin Olive Oil over your sliced vegetables, season with salt or your favorite seasoning and grill…delicious!

Fifth, dessert. Grill sliced pineapple for a few minutes on each side.
Top with a drizzle of chocolate sauce and low fat cool whip and you have a satisfying sweet treat.

I hope you all have a healthy and safe summer!

Water...The Universal Catalyst

Summer officially starts on June 21st.

Water consumption is vital all year long but especially in the summer.
Water makes up 60% of our body weight.
If you don’t drink enough water it can lead to dehydration.

When you sweat or exert yourself in any physical activity your body looses water.
I recommend drinking 2 quarts of pure water a day.
If you are exerting yourself you may want to drink up to 3 quarts.
Water consumption is best consumed through a straw or sipped.
If you drink water too fast it can lead to a stomach ache and various other health problems.

Remember that water means just that.
Tea, coffee and soda have water in them but plain water is what your body needs for proper nourishment.
Have ever wondered just how much water your body needs?
I have a revolutionary Body Balancing System that you can try for only $35.00.
That includes a consultation with me for FREE!
This is an $85.00 value but yours for a limited time only for only $35.00!

Please call my office at 817-424-5204 to have a Body Fitness Profile questionnaire mailed or emailed to you at no additional cost.
You can also visit my website at for more information.

I hope you all have a healthy, happy and refreshing summer!
