Carter 'Wellness Committee'- Holiday Health Tips

  1. Don't try to diet during the holidays. Set a goal of trying to maintain your present weight. That way, you have a realistic goal. You allow yourself to indulge here and there, but you don't go over the edge.
  2. Pace, don't race. Pay attention to how quickly you eat and exactly what you eat and drink. Savor the flavor by eating slowly and choosing your food carefully
  3. Offer to bring a favorite low-calorie dish to holiday parties, so you know there will be at least one "safe" item available. Stand far away from buffets so you're not tempted to nibble constantly.
  4. Make the effort to continue a regular exercise program. Exercise will help keep extra calories away, but it also can reduce the stress of social events and family gatherings.
  5. Don't go to a party or event on an empty stomach. Before going out, snack on protein, like chicken or cottage cheese. Protein satisfies and helps you eat less. Some people have the idea that if they skip lunch, or don't eat all day, they can eat more later, but skipping meals means you're hungry, and your chances of overeating later are much higher.
  6. Keep an eye on your portion sizes. In the heat of celebration, portion sizes can be excessive. Instead of eating a large amount of food, try to eat a large variety of foods.
  7. Don't let a hectic holiday schedule force you to eat fast food. Prepare and freeze several quick, healthy meals. That way, you have an option other than high-fat, fast-food meals.
  8. When the party is at your house, put low-calorie and fat-free salad dressings on the menu. Pack the table with flavorful vegetable dishes, and make reduced-fat versions of your family's favorite traditional dishes.
  9. Make decisions about what you're going to eat. Weight management is all about moderation and making healthy decisions.
  10. Enjoy the Holidays!!
