The holiday season can be a stressful time. Managing your weight during the holiday season is not as difficult as it sounds.

Here are 10 simple steps for holiday dieting:

Choose Wisely:
When choosing to eat foods at a party, start with something low calorie.

Just Say No:
Try to eat a healthy snack before going to an event to avoid snacking on unhealthy choices.

Manage Portion Size:
Use a salad plate instead of a dinner plate to trick you mind into thinking you are eating more.

Choose Your Sweets Wisely:
Allow yourself one cheat day a week.

Keep Up with Exercising:
Although it can be a stressful time, try to squeeze in at least 1 workout a week.

Eat and Drink Small:
Take small bites and sips to trick your brain to think you are eating more.

Snack Right:
When traveling or going to the office, pack your own snacks. You’ll resist the temptation to grab fast food while on the go.

Use a Food Journal:
Keeping track of what you eat can help you better manage your weight.

Bring a Healthy Dish:
When attending an event or party, bring a healthy side dish or appetizer.

Get Your Rest:
Getting enough sleep can lead to making better and healthier choices.
