Baseball season is here! How can you stay healthy when there are social outings and game-watching events? Health & Fitness Expert Stephanie Mansour is here to revamp our ballpark favorites so that we save on fat, calories, and sodium!
As a private weight loss coach for women, I deal with real women who have real lives! This means going to baseball games, hosting watch parties, and going to parties with a lot of food. Here are some simple ways to eat healthier:
1. A Healthier Hot Dog
At home: Buy lean meat hot dogs. Try chicken or turkey dogs to reduce fat and sodium.
At the game: Hot dogs at the stadium will cost you 300-600 calories! You can cut those calories in half simply removing half of the hotdog bun! Easy!
2. Dress Your Dog Healthy
At home: Make your own dips instead of regular, store-bought condiments! Try avocado and cilantro or mint with Greek yogurt.
At the game: Avoid high calorie condiments like mayo, but feel free to enjoy some relish and ketchup!
3. Not Your Average (Fattening) Nachos
At home: Forget corn chips! Go for these yummy Beanito bean chips. You get 4 grams of protein in a serving! I always emphasis with my private weight loss clients that food is fuel! Make sure the food you eat is always netting you at least some of the good stuff. Go for kale lettuce as a topping instead of the normal romaine or iceberg. The greener the healthier!
At the game: At the stadium, nachos cost you about 1100 calories! Yikes. Say no to the cheese whiz and add more chicken instead!
4. Sip & Save
At home: Instead of mixing your mimosa or Bellini with fruit juice, cut your calories by just adding in a piece of fruit! For other drinks, use sparkling water as your mixture instead of fruit juice.
At the game: Go for a light beer! Simple as that.
You can totally still enjoy baseball season and all your favorite snacks without compromising your weight loss goals! With a few healthy snack hacks and by following these easy weight loss tips, you can lose weight, make it last, and have fun while you’re at it! Cheers!
