Tomorrow is the 4th of July, but you don’t want to ruin your diet or upset your family and friends by not eating the high fat foods they made. This is what I do. Before I leave to go to the BBQ, I eat a little something so I’m not starved by the time I get there. I pick out the healthy foods and eat those. When people come up to me and say, “why don’t you have the ribs or the fried chicken on your plate?” I reply, “Oh I did! They were so good I scarfed them down. I’m such a little piggy. I’d have more but I’m already stuffed!” It’s a lie, but you stick to your diet plan and everyone’s happy. Happy 4th of July!
