Current Month's Tip:
Say Goodbye to Peer Pressure
Even if you've been eating right on track, it may be tough to stay on track if your partner, coworkers, or friends don't share your healthy eating habits. What to do? If your partner loves pizza, try ordering a pie that's heavy on the veggies and light on the cheese -- then supplement it with a side salad. Or, if your friends are having a girls' night out, suggest a restaurant that's got healthy appetizer options, instead of the typical fare of onion rings and cheese dip. And at work, instead of Friday baked-goods day, suggest a Friday "Make It Healthy" day, and swap baked pears with cinnamon or mini fruit-and-nut muffins for brownies and blondies.
