Weight Management over the holidays

What a great w/e.  Amazing food , good company and fabulous weather.  Now after all that turkey, gravy, mashed potatoes, and pumpkin pie with whip cream are you ready to start shaking it off.  It is not uncommon to gain few pounds over the holiday w/e  but getting right back to exercise will help you shed those unwanted additions.

But here are a few tips to better manage the parties, holidays, and social gathering where food is the main focus.

  • Never go hungry…always have a good healthy snack before leaving home.  It is amazing how many calories and fat there are in those little appetizers

  • Choose a small plate and don’t over load it

  • Don’t linger around the appetizer table… mingle

  • Choose low cal drinks…instead of the eggnog and rum how about a wine spritzer

  • If it’s a pot luck make something that is tasty, low-fat, low sugar and that supports your eating habits

Enjoy the party but make healthier choices
