Healthy Holiday Eating Tips!

Need some tips to steer clear of the holiday bulge? Check out this blog for a few, quick ideas!

It's the most, CALOR-ful time of the year!!  All that holiday cheer can bring of a few holiday inches if we succumb too much to all the delightful temptations that inevitably surround us!  Here are a few tips to keep the lid on calories, and keep those waistlines in check!

DON'T Save up on calories! 
Do eat a healthy, normal breakfast so you don't go into the holiday meal abnormally hungry and overdo it.

DO fill your plate with veggie dishes first.  Eat these first, and only take a bite or two only of starchy ones.  All the fiber will fill you up faster.

Eat so you are GENTLY full, NOT stuffed.

WAIT 10 MINUTES before a second helping.

DO NOT let your exercise program slide!!!

Keep treats OFF your desk, and stay out of the break room if they're there.

With a little awareness, and a smidge of willpower, you can start the New Year off with a healthy, happy body and mind!

Happy Holidays!
