Take Me Out To The Ballgame!


A day at the ballpark can be a lot of fun – and a lot of calories!  Check out these tips to enjoy the ballgame and not worry about derailing your diet!

Swap out soda for water: A 12 ounce cola has 137 calories* and 33 grams of sugar.  Most stadium drinks are much larger than this.  Water has zero calories and is great hydration for a hot day!

Drink light beer: A 12 ounce beer has 153 calories vs. 110 for a light beer of the same size.

Avoid popcorn:  A large popcorn with butter has over 1,000 calories!  Try peanuts instead.  You will eat them slower taking them out of the shell, and 2/3 of a cup of peanuts has 170 calories and 7 grams of protein.

Instead of pizza or a cheese steak try a hot dog: A hot dog has about 320 calories with 5 grams of protein.  Try low calorie toppings such as mustard.

Love Cracker Jack? Stick to the serving size: 1/2 a cup has 120 calories, so share the bigger package with a friend to have a treat at the game!

Bring a snack from home: Cut up fruits and veggies in a plastic bag are a great, healthy portable snack to bring to any event!
