The holiday season is upon us and we need to try to (at least) NOT gain weight..here are some "Festively Fit" tips:
Festively Fit Tip #1: When you arrive at a holiday party, drink two cups of water or herbal tea before you start eating.
Festively Fit Tip #2: When you attend a holiday party or an event, find a way to avoid sitting for the majority of the time (move about the room, start a dance party, etc.).
Festively Fit Tip #3: Focus on nutritious foods during the holidays rather than on what you shouldn’t eat. Each time you eat at home or at a holiday party, add things to your plate that are good for you, such as vegetables, fruit, nuts or other healthy proteins or grains.
Festively Fit Tip #4: When you are at a party and about to fill your plate with all the goodies from the buffet, pause and ask yourself: Is it time to eat now? What have I already eaten today? What is available here that is considered healthy?
I wish you a Happy and Healthy Holiday Time!
