Spring's arrival brings not just daffodils and tulips, but a wake-up call for everyone who has been hibernating during the winter, avoiding exercise, indulging in comfort foods -- and adding extra pounds. With the weather warming up, it's time to put away the bulky sweaters and get ready for skimpier clothing. But unless you're careful about spring's most fattening foods, you might actually add to your winter weight gain instead of shedding those extra pounds.

Ballgames, brunches, weekend picnics, and evening suppers on the patio are rites of passage this time of year. And the good news is you can still enjoy them all, with a little knowledge and a little planning. Here are some of spring’s most fattening foods, along with tips on how to enjoy them and still get your body ready for the beach.
