Enjoy this holiday season with a few tips to keep you happy, healthy, and on track!
Eat before you go:
Enjoy a balanced snack before going to your holiday gatherings to prevent overeating.
Start with veggies:
During the meal, fill up on veggies first and leave the higher-calorie foods until the end.
Remember your ‘why’:
Don’t pause your healthy living goals during the holidays. Staying consistent with small habits will have a big impact after the holidays are done.
Keep meal planning and prepping as a part of your routine during the holidays.
Savor every bite:
Maximize the enjoyment of your meal. Notice the variety in texture, color, taste, and aroma of all the delicious foods you’re about to enjoy.
Get back on track:
One meal doesn’t mean all of your goals are ruined. Focus on moving forward with healthy eating habits at your next meal.
Activity over the holidays will help burn off the extra calories we’re likely to consume. A walk after a meal will also support digestion and reduce bloating.
Commit to one serving:
If you think you’re still hungry, wait 10 minutes before going back for more.
Reduce liquid calories:
Choose water or sparkling water most often. Alternate alcoholic beverages with water.
Be present and check-in with yourself. Are you eating because you’re hungry or for other reasons?
