Don't Overdo It!

How to Prevent 
Holiday Overindulgence

Thanksgiving, Christmas and the New Year are quickly approaching. In addition to the excitement and anticipation, you’re also probably experiencing a bit of the stress and anxiety. The holiday season can wreak havoc not only on our wallets, but on our waistlines as well! There are food temptations everywhere! From the holiday parties and the goodies for gifts to the large family feasts and so much more. So, how do you enjoy this time of the year without packing on the pounds? I’ve devised a list of tips to keep your waistline intact:

Holiday Overindulgence Prevention Tips

  • Exercise in the morning at least 3 times each week
  • Be sure to consume your recommended daily 
amount of water every day, no matter what
  • Eat mostly raw fruits, veggies and healthy proteins 
before and after holiday events
  • Bring a healthy dish to the party
  • Keep alcoholic beverages to a minimum
  • Use smaller plates as often as possible
  • For buffet style meals, scan the table before filling 
your plate and make healthier choices
  • Eat holiday foods slowly and pace yourself so you’re
 full before you’ve eaten too much
  • Limit white foods as much as possible 
(i.e. bread, rice, flour, etc…)
  • Try to avoid getting seconds, unless it’s 
fruits and/or vegetables
  • Control your stress levels, to avoid stress eating
  • Share candy and dessert gifts instead of 
eating them by yourself

Of course, you’re human, so you may overindulge here or there. Just remember to spend the next few days after doing so on a healthy food regimen and beef up your workout routine. I hope these tips help you get through the holidays without increasing your waistline.
