Holiday Stress: Eating Healthy

Holidays such as Christmas and New Year’s bring to mind thoughts of family, friends, fun and food. However, each year, millions of Americans struggle to maintain their waistlines during the holidays while surrounded by tempting holiday treats. Follow the healthy tips below:

  • Do not leave the house on an empty stomach - it promotes overeating.
  • Avoid standing near the food table, a sure-fire way to overindulge.
  • Make socializing your top priority; conversation will keep you occupied.
  • Limit your drinking; alcohol increases hunger and lowers willpower.
  • Offer a low-calorie alternative; for example, if you have volunteered to bring a dessert, bring fruit rather than cheesecake.
  • Listen to your stomach; reduce your portion sizes and stop eating when you feel satisfied.

Don’t abandon health habits or feel pressured to eat and drink more than usual just because of the holidays. Make sure you get plenty of sleep, exercise, and plan your meals ahead of time.
