There are a lot of hours in a day when summer hits! We’ve all made lists of things we plan on accomplishing during the summer months and that’s a good thing, the trick however is getting those things done!
One thing for sure is, you can’t operate on an empty stomach!
When you retire the tendency can be to eat more and do less and before you know it, you’ve packed on an extra 40 pounds that you sincerely have no use for. As we age, the last thing we want to do is put more pressure on our joints but we also don’t want to deprive ourselves of the good things in life.
BBQing in the summer is one of those things we all look forward to and it should be delicious to indulge in the ritual and feel satisfied without the worry of packing on extra pounds.
Try swapping out your usual burger or steak for a protein rich chicken burger! You’ll be surprised how delicious they are and with the added benefit of 22 grams of lean muscle building protein at only 130 calories a patty, you can go a head and add extra toppings without tipping the scales.
Enjoy your food and remember to make healthy choices for yourself. You’ve lived a good life, keep yourself fit and trim so you can enjoy the rest!
