New Momscape Giveaway: Tell us your best summer diet tip for a chance to win $50! {Contest Closed}

Congratulations to Christy – the winner of our Best Summer Diet Tip Giveaway. Stay tuned for more contests and giveaways!

Summertime can be an inspiring time to get fit, lean and healthy. All the fresh fruits and veggies, the farmer’s markets, the family bike rides, and – of course – all of those opportunities to show off a new leaner physique.

So to celebrate this season of healthy choices, we want to know your best summer diet tip.

We’ll give a $50 Visa gift card to a randomly selected reader who leaves a reply at the end of this post with their favorite, most helpful weight loss secret.

Your tip can be a favorite way to eat more healthfully, a favorite weight loss plan or program, a new way of thinking about your body, a useful trick that helps you motivate yourself to move…whatever is most helpful to you!

The drawing will be random and the entry deadline is Friday July 15, 2011 at midnight mountain time. (US residents, ages 18 and over, please. Complete contest rules are here.)

Also, please note that comment moderation is enabled, so your comment will not show up immediately, but as long as it’s not rated R, it will appear below quite shortly.

Then follow us on Twitter or find us on Facebook because these are the channels through which we’ll announce the winner on Saturday, July 16 (in addition to sending the winner an email.)

So, tell us: what is your favorite weight loss tip?

    My diet tip is to drink lots of water. The more hydrated you the less likely you are to mistake being hungry for being thirsty.

  10. I drink only unsweetened coffee, water or tea.

  11. When I am hungry and craving a sweet snack, I eat a banana. It is both sweet and filling.

    Weigh and measure your food servings. It’s very easy to under estimate an accurate serving size.

    Everything in moderation.

  15. When you want to reach for a candy bar grab some cherries, strawberries, apples etc.

  16. Veronica Garrett says:

    Don’t snack between meals. Eat three balanced meals a day. Don’t skip breakfast.

  17. Drink lots of water and incorporate roughage into your diet – takes longer to digest and makes you feel fuller so you don’t eat too many “bad” things

  18. One summer tip is to go easy on the high calorie condiments like mayonaise

  19. My tip is WATER! Drink it before meals, during meals, after meals and between meals.
    And then go swimming in it – often.
    Thanks for the contest.

  20. Make sure you drink water. It fills you up and keeps you from getting dehydrated during the hot weather.
