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:
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.
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.
