As we head into the holidays we are often tempted into overindulgence and mindless eating. Here are a few tips to stay on track:
1) Don’t show up hungry! Skipping meals won’t save you calories and if you sit down and are ‘starving’ you will just eat more.
2) Eat small portions of your favorite ‘indulgences’. Use a tablespoon to serve yourself a small portion and skip the food you don’t absolutely love.
3) If you are not in charge of the meal bring a healthy side dish. This will ensure you have something healthy to eat!
4) Return to your routine. If you overindulge in one meal don’t sabotage the entire weekend. Get back into the gym or take a walk and drink your water. The faster you get back on track the less chance you’ll have of gaining weight.
Have a fun and healthy holiday season!
