I came across this great graphic that shows exactly what you may be getting (calorie-wise) out of those treats – be aware that those candy calories add up fast! Some of your better options? Choose a “mini” or two – you’ll get the taste, without a huge hit to your hips (or wherever your extra pounds tend to add up).

Don’t get too hung up on trying to eat perfectly today, but do make sure you don’t undo all the good choices you have been making on non-holidays!
Summer is here, and with the July 4 holiday coming up next week, grilling season is in full swing. But do you know what the best burger option is?
Prevention came up with this great graphic comparing both turkey burgers and veggie burgers (sorry, carnivores, no red meat here). Food manufacturers have come a long way on taste throughout the years, so don’t be afraid to venture away from the cow to get your burger fix.
So, what should you choose as you go about your weekend and upcoming holiday celebrations? Take a look:
