Here are a few things to keep in mind during the Holiday Season
1. Set Realistic Goals
Before getting fully thrown into holiday festivities set some goals for yourself. Do you want to lose a few more pounds, focus on maintaining your weight, or is your goal to eat mindfully and listen to your body this holiday season? Write your goals down! It would be a great idea to set goals every week. Specific goals will help you to stay focused.
2. Eat Mindfully
When out and about make sure to eat mindfully. This can be done by fixing a plate of food rather than grazing over all the delicious goodies. I challenge you to have a seat and enjoy what you are eating! Smell it, taste it, chew it, and enjoy all the nutrients it has to offer! This will increase satisfaction and decrease hunger.
3. Choose Wisely
Don’t go to the party starving! Have some vegetables, a piece of fruit, boiled egg, or a protein shake before you go. Once you arrive, take a walk around and look at all the food and treats. Then you will have a good idea of your options. Choose nutrient dense foods such as: nuts, fruit, vegetables, olives, deviled eggs, etc. and be sure to eat a small amount of protein. Protein will help to keep your blood sugar balanced which will decrease cravings. Try avoiding or limiting cheese, dairy, and densed carbohydrates (these foods are harder to digest).
4. Be sure to Drink Water
Water is essential for the body to function properly. It helps carry nutrients to the cells, as well as toxins out of cells and out of the blood. It is recommended to drink half of your body’s weight in ounces of water a day! When having “Adult Beverages”, be sure to drink a glass of water between each drink.
5. Get Moving
When visiting with family, make it fun! Take a walk around the block, take the children to play outside. Moving the body will help to keep all channels of elimination open. It will also help to burn off any extra calories consumed.
6. Give Thanks
Take a moment to give thanks for all that is around you! Look at the fabulous food and give gratitude by saying thank you or a blessing before consuming it. Be thankful for family and friends and the New Year that it soon to come!
