8 Tailgating Tips For Health-Conscious Patriots Fans

September 9, 2012 12:00 AM

" Football season is finally here! Don’t let the weekly games put a halt to summer weight loss and fitness goals. There are many ways to still have fun tailgating while also being calorie conscious. Check out these eight tailgating tips for those watching their weight.

1. BYOF: Bring your own food. The more prepared you are for the Pats, the better. Patriots tailgating typically includes cheeseburgers on the grill, sausages, nachos, cookies and other snacks. Bring flavorful yet easy-to-pack options like fruit salad, baked chips with light dip, marinated chicken to throw on the grill and light side dishes like cucumber tomato salad.

2. Eat the right stuff: Fill up on protein, veggies and fruit instead of eating the empty, calorie-laden snacks that are out on the table.

3. BYOB: This is an obvious one. By bringing your own booze, you can save tons of calories. Skip pre-made pitchers of sangria and margaritas or full-calorie beers by having options of your own. If you have ice and plenty of Bud Light, Skinny Girl Margaritas, pitchers of wine spritzers or whatever your go-to drink is, you won’t be missing out on any of the fun.
