Being smart about eating during the holidays is always a challenge, below I’ve listed some helpful tips to help you all make it through.
1.) Don’t skip meals throughout the day in order to “save up” for the bigger meal later in the day (this typically leads to overeating later on).
2.) Pay attention to what you are consuming. Try to fill up more on whole grains, fruits, and veggies because these will keep you fuller longer.
3.) Go for a smaller plate instead of a large one, this is a simple way to avoid overeating.
4.) Fill at least half of your plate with lower calories options (fruits and vegetables)
5.) Get your family to go for a walk after you eat a meal even if it’s a short one.
