Holiday Eating tips

DO bring your own dish to the occasion. Nobody has to know that it’s healthy or low calorie and at least you’ll know how many calories and the ingredients that are in it.

With Thanksgiving come and gone and the holiday season around the corner I know how hard it is to resist all the celebrative eating and drinking (and the weight gain that comes with it) so I put together for you an awesome guide to eating during the holidays.

DON’T try to convince yourself that you’re going to eat less after the holidays therefore it’s ok to eat what you want during the holiday season. You will not have as much motivation to eat smart once the holidays have passed.

DO eat less for the 3-5 days leading up to a holiday get together. You’ll look even better when you turn up at the get together and you will feel less guilty when you enjoy yourself.

Ladies: DO dress sexy. Wear something tight, do your hair up, put on your highest heels . Guys: DO dress dapper. Wear something sharp, be well groomed, shine your shoes. This way you will feel less likely to indulge in a huge dinner

DO position yourself as far away from the appetizer table as possible

DO bring your own dish to the occasion. Nobody has to know that it’s healthy or low calorie and at least you’ll know how many calories and the ingredients that are in it.

DO send people home with food if you are hosting a party.

DO sit at the table as far from the unhealthy food options as possible. If you have to keep standing up, putting your drink down and reaching across Aunt Nettie to grab a piece of bread you’re not going to have as many pieces as if it were right in front of you.

Stick to these guidelines and I promise you will keep the weight off while everyone around you gains another 4-8 pounds!
