Tips for sticking to your diet this holiday season
Avoid the holiday weight gain
LIFESTYLE Weight loss
The holiday season can be a tricky time for those with weight-loss goals. While all of the delicious food, celebrations, drinking, and party-going can be tempting for you and your diet, with a few simple tips, it is possible to enjoy the holiday season and its yummy treats without sacrificing all your hard work.
- Don't arrive to any holiday party or family dinner with an empty stomach. Eat a healthy, filling snack before you go this way you aren't tempted to stuff your face with all that's cooking!
- That being said, the holidays are a time to enjoy so it doesn't mean you shouldn't indulge just a little bit. The key is portion control. You can have a little bit of everything—keywords being a little bit.
- Go for the healthy stuff. The holidays are sure to offer a variety of food so try and stick to your meal plan with your available options as best as possible.
- If you do find you've overeaten, don't beat yourself up. Try hitting the gym or revamping your workout routine to compensate.
Come January 1, you will be glad and proud you stuck to your diet regimen with these easy steps.
