5 Healthy Holiday Tips:
- KEEP YOUR WEIGHT STABLE
At the start of the holiday season weigh yourself, and throughout the festivities do your best to stay in and around this weight.
Avoid treats you can have any time of the year, instead enjoy the special holiday foods that are only available during the holidays.
- CHOOSE BEVERAGES WISELY
Alcoholic beverages are loaded with empty calories. Alternate between water and alcohol, and sip slowly.
- AVOID GOING TO PARTIES STARVING
To prevent overeating, have a snack 1-3 hours before the party to hold you over until the party.
- STAY PHYSICALLY ACTIVE
Walk in a mall or arena, shovel the snow. Don’t forget to stay active during the holidays, this will help to burn the extra holiday calories.
