Weekend Weight Gain: How to Avoid It

After a long, hard workweek it's completely understandable that you'd want to relax, unwind and enjoy the couple of days off you have over the weekend. This includes making a pit stop at the grocery store for stuff to cook on the grill, drinks to ice up in the cooler, and extra munchies to help pass the time since you're not in nose-to-the-grindstone work mode.

This is like an American pastime -- using our weekends to meet and eat with friends and family. It gets even more indulgent on holiday weekends when meals might include an entire smorgasbord of potluck goodies everyone brought by your house while they swim in your pool.

Even on non-holiday weekends, we tend to consumer more calories because we drink calorie-laden alcoholic beverages and we eat out in restaurants and ignore portion guidelines, ending our meals with desserts that have names like Death By Chocolate.

You don't have to let your free time that you spend on the weekends ruin all of the hard work you do to achieve or maintain trim figure during the work week. Pick one of these tips to help you whittle down your waist if you're prone to splurging from Friday night through Sunday:

5 Tasty Substitutes for High Fat, High Calorie Foods

In order to lose weight, you need to create a calorie deficit. There are several ways to do this, but one quick way is to substitute healthy low calorie or low fat foods for the high calorie or high fat foods that you eat.

Here are 5 tasty substitutes for more common high calorie or high fat foods:

1) Soda pop has no redeeming qualities other than it tastes good. It's high in sugar, containing about 3 tablespoons per 12 ounce can, and often contains sodium and caffeine. Switching to diet soda made with an artificial sweetener is better than downing all the sugar. Better yet is to drink water instead. If the flavor of water gets boring, jazz it up by adding a squeeze of lemon, lime or orange juice. Try sparkling water as a change of pace. Add a slice of fresh fruit, like peach, or watermelon and mash it against the side of the glass to release flavors. Do this with fresh mint and lime and you have yourself a nonalcoholic mojito.
