Fortunately, I've discovered a neat trick for making sure I can eat a Fat Loss Plate at any barbecue I go to: I always offer to bring a side dish. At most barbecues, grilled meats (Proteins) are the star of the show, and there are also plenty of Fast Carbs such as potato salad or pasta salad. So I take the opportunity to make sure there's at least one dish with some Slow Carbs, like a bean and tomato salad or a low-fat coleslaw. That way, I can be sure I'm eating foods in the perfect combinations to boost my metabolism and burn fat. Do you have a tip or trick you want to share? Click here to tell us about it!
