Taming the Holiday Indulgences
Thanksgiving is a time to reflect on our blessings and be thankful for everything we have.
With that, also comes a lot of food. Eating rationally around the holidays is challenging; it’s a battle between eating what’s nutritionally beneficial and managing portion sizes. Here are a few of my tips that help me maintain my shape around the oh-so-tempting holiday season:
Workout first thing in the morning before the craziness begins
Drink a large glass of water before eating. Add some fun garnish like lemon or mint leaves
Put your vegetables on your plate first, then protein, leaving little room for heavy sides like potatoes and cheesy casseroles
Don’t go crazy overloading your plate-most times I find that my eyes are bigger than my stomach and I become full from
half the amount of food than I had anticipated
We already know we are going to eat more unhealthy than usual during the holidays-one poor meal isn’t going to knock you off track. After the holiday is over, pick back up with your healthy routine and get back to it!
BE FIT. BE PRODUCTIVE. BE JŌBU.
