Strategies To Eat Healthy On A Holiday

The holidays, a time for decorations, gift giving, and being merry. And who can forget the feast? That big table full of mouth watering dishes, handcrafted by your best friend or aunt Dawn who you haven’t seen for years. Want to dig in? Not just yet. Holiday may be a time for eating, but you need to stay healthy too. Here’s the strategy to do it.

Come Prepared To A Party

Parties are thrown left and right during the holidays, and in the middle is you, trying not to overeat. If you are trying to maintain your weight for some reason, or you just need to be healthy, you can avoid overindulging by eating beforehand. When your stomach is not rumbling every few seconds, you are given a choice to eat healthy when you are in the actual venue.

Bring Your Own

If you have a pre-existing condition that requires you to eat a specific diet, it is better to bring your own food at a party. This way you are sticking to the doctor’s orders, or even your model management agency, though there are a lot of temptations. At least you get to see your friends. Not everything revolves around food on holiday’s. There is good company and stories to tell too.

Stay Away From Temptation

Just like the strategy of not stocking chocolates and other temptations in the house to avoid indulging, you should also stay away from the table at parties. Positioning yourself where you are not bound to look at the food will help control your appetite.

Tell The Host

Whether you are vegan, vegetarian, or have a special type of diet and you do not want to bring food, you can still eat healthy by informing the host. Maybe she can do something about it like increasing the salad options so you can enjoy too.

You can be happy without going overboard on the food department. Concentrate on the friends you haven’t seen in a while and family members you have missed. It will help take your mind off the food in the other room.
