I don’t know about you, but we got through Halloween unscathed. My daughter actually hid her Halloween candy so it was a win-win for all of us! And luckily, I didn’t go overboard on over-eating our “ghoulish-themed” dinner but the temptation was definitely there. Man, why does Halloween seem to be the beginning of the glutton-filled holiday food marathon? Trust me, I ask this question every year.
So, this year I thought I would do something different! I’ve been going back and forth on ways to prevent myself from over-indulging and I decided to make a Survival Guide to get me through the upcoming holidays and to avoid a total food coma.
And, one thing I’ve learned is that you don’t have to make drastic food changes like starving ones-self, depriving yourself, or completely eliminating an entire food group from your diet. By choosing a healthy lifestyle I know following these 10 tips during the holidays or anytime will make for a successful outcome of being healthy during the holidays & not giving in to temptation and falling off the healthy bandwagon!
Here are my top 10 tips for getting through the holidays!
Drink Plenty of Water
Eat BEFORE Going to a Holiday Party or Social Event
Don’t drink your calories
Eat in moderation
Eat only when you’re hungry
Eat less carbohydrates and more protein & veggies
