Foods to Watch Out For In Summers

Bright sunshine

Its summer time and don’t we all want a treat. You can enjoy all you want but be careful about putting on weight just because you ate a lot for 2 weeks or so. So here are some foods you must try and stay away from if you do not want to undo all your weight loss efforts.

We all know how important it is to stay hydrated. Especially in the summers when our bodies loses a lot of water content. So in order to hydrate ourselves we drink water. Sometimes, especially in summer, a lot of people make use of sodas ans sweet teas.

Which taste awesome but pack on pounds as each pop contains about 150 calories so you must control the amount of beverages you entertain yourself with per day.

Smoothies, cocktails and milkshakes can go even higher than standard sodas so watch out people. You should always keep your liquids in check and take lighter versions of your thirst quenchers.

Another food item about which you should be vigilant is ice cream. In other words, frozen treats.

A cup of soft ice cream can have as much as 380 calories with 22 grams of fat. Add to that some chocolate cookie dough milkshake concoction and the calories rise up to 720. Which is a disaster if you ask me.

That does not necessarily mean that you should give up frozen treats. What you must do is to give up giant portions and high calorie versions. Look out for frozen deserts like fruit bars and fudge bars which come under 150 calories.
