Avoid the holiday weight gain

Avoid the holiday weight gain
BY ROD SILVA

The word "holidays" often conjure up images of cakes and pies, and stuffing yourself with turkey and all the trimmings. According to the National Institutes of Health, the average American gains 6 pounds between Thanksgiving and New Year's Day, but holiday weight gain is not inevitable! Now that we are in the midst of the Holiday Season, it's a good time to start planning how you will maintain your healthy eating habits.

First, it is important to be realistic. Trying to lose weight during the holidays can be very challenging. Instead, set a goal of maintaining your weight during this time and then strive to lose weight in the New Year. As your calendar fills up with holiday parties, remember to eat a snack before the celebration. Oftentimes, people will skip meals if they have evening party plans, but this will cause you to overeat. Maintain control over your appetite by eating a high protein snack, such as cottage cheese and fruit, or a protein shake before the party.

Think Healthy When Eating

Starting off holiday meals with a large salad topped with lots of veggies and low-fat dressing will result in consuming fewer calories during the meal. Fill yourself up with fruits and vegetables. While low in calories, these are high in vitamins and minerals and will leave you feeling full longer.
