Everyone’s healthy diet goes through the window once the holiday season arrives, because some of the festive treats are simply impossible to resist. If you’re looking for a way to stay healthy and avoid over-eating, but still consume all your favorite treats—these three surprisingly easy tips will get you there.
There’s nothing wrong with enjoying your favorite holiday treats, as long as you know your limits. Opt for reasonable-sized portions and remember that leftovers are still going to taste delicious tomorrow, so there’s no need to always go for the second serving.
Food is usually our main preoccupation during the holiday season, but remember this time of the year is actually all about family. Sharing a meal together is one of the highlights of the Christmas and Thanksgiving celebration, but doing some non-food related activities once the dinner is over is equally exciting.
Take Your Time
You shouldn’t rush yourself to try each side dish that has been served. Taking your time to properly savor food will make you appreciate it much more and feel more satisfied, and it’s useful advice you should embrace even after the holiday season is over.
