8. Just Say No at the Movies

Gobbling up obscene amounts of fat and calories has become a sad tradition in movie theaters. When you go to a movie, your best bet is to skip those snacks entirely. Except for an occasional soft pretzel, there are virtually zero healthy options at a theater—and most are ridiculously unhealthy and massively fattening. Smuggle in something healthy like dried fruit, baked chips, or veggie sticks, or choose to find satisfaction with two hours of entertainment.

9. Ditto for Ballparks

Never plan to eat a meal at a sporting event. Ballparks are synonymous with garbage food, and it’s a bad idea to be stuck there starving while surrounded by lukewarm pizzas, hot dogs, and nachos. Instead, eat a healthy meal before you go. If you must have a snack, stick to a soft pretzel or a sorbet.

10. Avoid French Fries

A 130-pound woman would have to run 3 miles at 6 miles per hour in order to burn off the calories in a medium order of McDonald’s French fries. Note we said “medium,” not an order of large fries. Wouldn’t it be easier to skip the French fries altogether? You can easily consume lots of calories; burning off lots of calories is hard work!

11. Say No to White Sauce

Traditional Alfredo is the worst of all sauces. It’s the perfect combination of butter, cream, and cheese, which leads to a caloric and fat count nightmare. If flat abs are on your to-do list, do not order this at a restaurant. Marinara will always be a better bet!

12. Avoid Thick-Crust Pizza

Pizza has the potential to be really good or really bad for you. The power is in your hands. When making or ordering pizza, make sure you always choose the thinnest crust possible while piling on lean meats and fresh or grilled produce. To maximize nutrition and minimize fat, ask them to merely sprinkle cheese on top (rather than slathering on two handfuls of cheese).

13. Don’t Go Overboard on Vacations

Vacations are designed for people to get away from the daily grind, see something new, and have some fun. They are not designed for people to blow their healthy habits and gain ten pounds as quickly as possible. Always include exercise as part of your day wherever you are and stick with healthy eating habits.

14. Trade Traditional Pasta for Spaghetti Squash

Almost everyone loves pasta! But, unfortunately, traditional pasta has a heavy caloric pricetag. The good news for all you spaghetti lovers out there is that spaghetti squash is the perfect substitution for pasta. It has a mild flavor, tastes great with tomato sauce, and twirls like spaghetti! This versatile squash can be baked, boiled, microwaved, or cooked in a Crock Pot! One cup of spaghetti squash contains only 42 calories and 0.4 grams of fat. Its benefits include 2.2 grams of fiber per cup in addition to a bounty of nutrients like vitamin A, folic acid, and potassium.

15. Don’t Shop When Hungry

Grocery shopping when hungry frequently leads to impulse purchases that contain more fat and calories than you would choose if you shopped when satiated. One of the best ways to boost your metabolism is to plan meals ahead of time, create a shopping list, and adhere to the list when you shop. This way, you’re far more likely to make healthier food choices.
