The holidays. Good times but too much food, drinks, sweets, and, that seemingly guaranteed weight gain. And then the guilt rolls in. Back to the lettuce and the gym on January 1st, to shed those pounds. Maybe. Only to repeat it the next year. The cycle begins anew.
Let’s break the cycle.
They’re time to celebrate with friends and family. Time to appreciate life. Not simply an excuse to indulge. You can take a different approach to the holidays, enjoy them more and get out of the cycle. And we can help.
Eat something healthy before you go out so you don’t feel ravenous.
Really take your time and appreciate your food.
Take the time to enjoy where you are and the company you’re with, not just the food in front of you.
Pay attention to what you eat, how much you serve yourself. You don’t need to eat the entire pumpkin pie, you know.
And finally, be grateful. Not just grace at dinner but your appreciation of the food, family and friends. And if you do all we’ve said above, you will be.
