Shed the pounds

Anyone can enjoy the treats of summer with careful planning and shopping. TOPS (Take Off Pounds Sensibly) recommends these substitutions to lighten up a traditional cookout.

Substitute non-fat plain yogurt or non-fat mayonnaise in popular picnic salads.

Choose lean cuts of meat for grilling. Try ground turkey for burgers or marinated flank steak.

Pack plenty of fresh vegetables and low fat dips for crunching, air popped popcorn for munching, and a variety of interesting diet drinks for sipping.

Stay active, participate, walk a parade route, entertain the small children, volunteer to do a restroom run, just keep moving.

Plan to treat yourself to a refreshing snack. Low calorie ice milks, sherbets or non-fat frozen yogurts are delightful ways to indulge without the burden of extra fat and calories.

For more information on how to enjoy your summer outings to the fullest without gaining weight, attend a free TOPS meeting. For more information on chapters in the area call June Grimes at 352-463-911 or toll-free 1-800-932-8677. TOPS meets on Wednesday 10:30 a.m. to noon at St. Albans Episcopal Church, Hwy 19, Chiefland.
