Tips For Keeping The Dreaded Holiday Weight Gain At Bay During this Holiday Season

Tips From Meadowlands Hospital Dietitian Amy Murray

Don’t go hungry – whether you’re going shopping or getting ready for a party:
make sure you’ve had a good meal or protein-packed snack before you head out. Eating adequate protein will keep you satisfied longer, so you’re ready to face the temptation of holiday treats. Don’t save up your calories for a big meal later in the day. Letting yourself get hungry often leads to cravings and overindulgence later on. Eat as you normally would throughout the day and eat a balanced holiday meal. And don’t deprive yourself – it’s okay to eat a little dessert too!

Stay hydrated – thirst is often confused with hunger, so fill up on water before your next meal. This will help you to avoid overeating and over-snacking. Make a goal of drinking at least 8 cups of water throughout the day.

Going to a potluck? – bring a healthy dish that will help you to stay on track with your diet goals (think lean protein or a side of veggies) – your friends might thank you! Be picky at the buffet table. Choose the foods you really want, and avoid loading your plate with a little bit of everything – that goes for dessert too!
