The summer BBQ is a tradition for warm weather gatherings. For those of us working on our healthy living goals, walking in to a picnic table filled with food can seem like a challenge – but CalorieKing members are the masters of planning ahead so we can meet our goals. We thought it was time to share our healthy choices with you in the CalorieKing Blog.
We love good times with friends, family and food as much as you do. The CalorieKing difference is we believe in having a good plan for our food intake to go along with our preparation for a party. That way we can enjoy the good times without feeling guilty afterwards.

It also helps us prepare to navigate group settings where things like portion control and saying no to seconds can be difficult. The CalorieKing Blog will show you how.
