Tips For Healthy Holiday Eating

Author : Robert Boswell

When the holidays happen, most people forget all about their diets and healthy eating. Weight gains of 7 - 10 pounds are popular around Halloween and Christmas. To make the holidays easier, these thoughts will benefit you with healthy eating through the season and not gaining weight.

A lot of conventional foods can be made low fat. Turkey is very lean without the skin, and gravy may be made without any fat. Potatoes that are given without butter may be very healthy. The adored pumpkin pie is balanced, although it can be made into a fatty dessert with the adding of whipped cream.

Even though the holidays are in, do not forget about the exercise. Keeping weight off during the holiday season is burning off the increased calories. You should strategize a walk after meals, park farther from stores when you shop, and take a few walks around the mall before you start shopping.

Over holiday parties and at family dinners, feel free to taste foods although you shouldn't splurge. Choose what you plan to eat in advance, then stick to your plan. Eat plenty of vegetables, fruit, low fat dressings, and slices of lean meats. Before you go to a party, eat a little snack to help curb your appetite.

If at all possible, skip alcohol. Having too many drinks can cripple your will power, and also add nonessential calories to your diet. In the place of alcohol, sip water with lemon. Water can help to limit your appetite and keep you from binging. Also make sure to skip eggnog, as every glass could have up to 300 calories.

Be flexible with your healthy eating, as one terrible meal won't ruin your diet. Try to balance your calories over a couple of days and don't just look at one meal or day.
