10 Tips to Avoid Holiday Weight Gain

10 Tips to Avoid Holiday Weight Gain

  1. Moderation – the first 2 bites taste the best. Control portions & leave some food on your plate
  2. Budget calories for indulgences – if you know there are special treats you want to enjoy, try to cut back on portions or eat lighter for some of your other meals that day
  3. Keep fuelled with healthy snacks – don’t let yourself get too hungry, as you’re more likely to overeat when your blood sugar is low. Eating small amounts every 3-4 hours keeps your metabolism humming
  4. Limit “tastes” while cooking – those extra nibbles add up
  5. Stay hydrated – drink plenty of water to stay satiated & keep your metabolism fired up
  6. Divert your attention – there’s more to a party than food! Focus on great conversation & connecting with friends
  7. Schedule in your workout – so you’re sure to fit it in. 20 minutes will be over in a flash!
  8. Bring nutritious and calorie-wise fare to social events – you’ll know exactly what you’re noshing
  9. Limit alcohol – when we drink we’re more likely to lose control of what we’re putting in our mouths. Sip water or club soda instead
  10. Build in fun movement – head outdoors for a walk or playing in the snow with family
