Enjoying The Holidays Without Putting on the LB's

Nov 23, 2010

The holiday season is upon us! As we all know, the celebration includes tons of food and beverages! How can we enjoy the holiday without putting on all that unnecessary weight?

The following are a few helpful tips on keeping your waistline in check during the holidays.

1.) Arrive Full

Eat a small snack before you head to your holiday location. This will help stave off any uncontrollable urges to gorge when the meal is ready.

2.) Eat Slowly

Allow your body to send the signal to your brain that you have eaten enough. Shoveling food down your throat is the easiest way to overeat because it takes approximately 20 minutes for your brain to receive the information saying you are full!

3.) Enjoy In Moderation

Its the holidays, so do not punish yourself for having a slice of pie after dinner. However, enjoy it in moderation. Enjoy your treat, eat it slowly, and really savor the flavors.

Have a happy holiday and be safe!
