9 Healthy Side Dishes for Your Summer BBQ

9 Healthy Side Dishes for Your Summer BBQ

Does a summer of BBQs typically derail your weight loss efforts? Ready for a new approach that doesn’t sideline you from social gatherings? With the ReShape® Procedure, you’ll have tools and support to help you stay on track, even when facing summer’s most tempting offerings.

ReShape helps you control portion size so you’re eating the right amount of healthy foods you love. The complete ReShape weight loss program includes a dual weight loss balloon, which requires no surgery, leaves no scars, and is inserted in about 20 minutes. The ReShape intragastric balloon is not a permanent implant, does not permanently reroute your digestive system, and is removed after six months. Inserted into your stomach endoscopically, the intragastric weight loss balloons help jump start your weight loss by taking up room in your stomach, so there’s less room for food. You can still eat healthy foods you enjoy but in smaller portions.

An effective and motivational feature of the ReShape weight loss program—in addition to the weight loss balloon—is the support and counseling it offers. As part of the program, you’ll receive diet, fitness, and lifestyle coaching for a full year. Your coaches are highly trained and have experience working with people just like you to achieve significant, life-changing weight loss. So if you’re facing BBQ season or other weight loss challenges, they can help you examine your situation and choices, and create personalized strategies that help keep you on the path to success. You can work with your ReShape personal coach to find healthy foods to help you stay on track, like these recipes for summer BBQ side dishes recently featured in Prevention Magazine.
