Hey all, I would like to here what some of you BBQ. My wife and I have been working out for a couple years but have never kept a real healthy diet :( We just recently started to make a real effort to eat right. I am a huge BBQ'r! I am usally firing that thing up at least 3x a week. (less dishes to do and the wife loves me for cookin) Is there any kind of Meat that I should make sure to stay away from? (Besides the obvious ones with fat hangin all over it) Now I am sure Chicken is ok, but what about Hamburgers from time to time? The hotdogs are out for sure lol. I would appreciate any dinner ideas on the BBQ or off that are healthy!

I BBQ chicken breast, venison burgers and steaks, and squirells.

I think that burgers are alright, but I eat more fat than carbs. So the extra fat (aside from the saturated) is alright. Other than that....pork shish-kabobs with lots of veggies are definitely good.:burger:

Pork shiskabobs?!? Why not chicken, steak or maybe some turkey? Pork would have to be the last meat on my list.

Why the hell would you leave pork out of your diet? Just because it's slightly higher in fat doesn't mean it's not a great choice. Just eat low carbs with the meal. I believe you should not mix high fats and high carbs in meals. Pick either fat or carbs, but not both. That my closed-minded friend is why pork is the choice.

Grilling is a great and healthy way to prepare food. You can grill anything. That's the only way I cook fish, (don't want to stink up the house) especially salmon. Pork would be last on my list as well but I love a good pulled pork sandwich. BBQ sauce you might want to avoid though - high in sugar. Stuff is healthier wtihout it.
Somebody has already mentioned vegies - try grilling asparagas loosely wrapped in foil, it's incredible.

Simmer down clark, I said it would be last on my list, I didn't say I'd NEVER eat it. I agree with you about prtoein + fat OR carbs, usually not large amounts of both. But I don't know of any fattier meats than pork, and if I can I prefer to eat the leaner meats as oppose to fatty ones, that's why it's last on my list.
