Is your family hitting the local fair circuit this summer? Carnival concessions are famously fattening.

Make your summer fun a little easier on the waistline by using these tips.
- Stick to water and avoid extra calories from soda or other sugary drinks.
- Pick ONE favorite guilty pleasure and indulge in only that.
- SHARE - nobody needs to eat an entire fried Twinkie by themselves!
- Eat before you head to the fair – an empty stomach will make you more prone to overdo it.
