4th of July, holiday meals and a potential hazard

  • Hey folks, I just looked at the calendar and realized the the 4th is on a Sunday this year, which is good news.

    However I think most of us will probably celebrating on Saturday the 3rd.

    So, just a warning, don't let it sneak up on you.   Plan your meals ahead of time, and dont let the ribs, and coleslaw,and mom's apple pie get in the way of achieving your dreams.

    Anyone have any ideas on how to avoid the over eating picnic barbeque death trap ?

    Also, is watermelon an acceptable carb ?


  • I personally would make the planned picnic day my free day.  Watermelon is acceptable as a carb  just watch the portion size.
