Survival Guide For A Fit Summer Cookout

In the middle of summer we always see invitations to cookouts come our way and as bodybuilders/physique models it can be a scary thing. Do we bring out own food and get laughed at from others? This happens most of the time.. but it doesn't have to be if you do what I do.

Protein: If they have grilled chicken breast you are golden! If not, it's not so bad to grab 2 beef burger patties and eat them alone or wrap them in lettuce. This will allow you to reduce the simple carbohydrates from the buns.

Carbohydrates: These are the things that you really want to stay away from because they are simple carbs from white buns or most likely potato salads that are filled with fatty dressings. The best option is to have one corn on the cob as the carb and keep it light.

Dessert: This can be the hardest table to stay away from as you'll see many incredible temptations and you'll be packing in a 1000 calories in no time. The best option is to avoid it all together, but if you do need a light something opt for fresh fruit salad. Happy Grilling!
