More Holiday Hints

Sometimes it’s just small changes that can add up to a big difference. So—more holiday tips:

  1. Add protein—the more protein you eat earlier in the day, the less food you tend to eat during the day. Try a hard-boiled egg, canadian bacon, or part-skim mozzarella cheese stick.
  2. Don’t go hungry—Temptation on an empty stomach is a recipe for over-indulgence. Keep healthy snacks on hand and then enjoy a few special treats as you party and celebrate the season. Keywords here are “a few special treats.”
  3. Recognize your choices—And, you do have choices. Not all holiday foods are full of extra sugar and fat. Look for vegetable options, lighter dips, seafood or lean meat and cheese wraps. And then remember that other choice—moderation.

Stay tuned . . .
