Stay active throughout the holidays. Although time is precious, keeping up with your activity can help manage stress so try to make time for yourself. Think about scheduling your workouts in your calendar to stay committed. Also, remember that even a 10-minute walk is better than nothing at all! 2. Never go to a party hungry. This can lead to overeating. It’s better to have a balanced breakfast and lunch, rather than go all day without eating. 3. Chose your dining seat wisely. Avoid sitting near the buffet table or at a table where there’s tempting food within arm’s reach. This can easily lead to mindless eating! 4. Be cautious of grazing and portion sizes.Instead of just grabbing handfuls of food (likes cheese, nuts, etc) or appetizers throughout the party, use a plate so you know exactly how much you’re eating. Think and wait before you grab seconds. 5. Choose your calories carefully. You can have chips, crackers, and nuts ANY day of the year. It’s ok to indulge on foods that are unique and special to this time of year but try to avoid indulging on foods that are available all year long. 6. Eat those special holiday foods that you enjoy.Plan on having a small portion of a favorite food as part of your holiday celebration, without letting the guilt set in. It’s that guilt that can often lead to unhealthy eating behaviors. 7. Be mindful. When you’re distracted, stressed, tired, it’s easy to eat more or not choose the best options. Commit to making sure that you eat slowly and find non-food ways to cope. 8. Be aware of your alcohol intake. If you are drinking alcoholic drinks, it’s easy to lose track of how many you’re having. In between alcoholic drinks, have a glass of water. 9. Plan ahead. Plot out your week ahead. What nights will you be out to eat? At a social gathering? Make sure that you’re not neglecting the meals you CAN control at home. Make a big batch of chili, pre-cook some chicken breasts or freeze turkey meatballs so you know you can quickly throw together a healthy home-cooked meal. 10. Ask for support. Talk to your family and friends about trying to be healthier together. Suggest splitting a dessert or going for a walk after a meal. Happy Holidays
