  • Do your best to stick to your usual eating and exercise patterns, rather than using the holiday season to let yourself go.
  • Avoid going to holiday get-togethers with an empty stomach. Have a substantial snack in the mid-afternoon before heading out for dinner parties and buffets.
  • Watch your alcohol calories. Try alternating an alcoholic beverage with a calorie-free beverage to reduce your overall intake. If you don’t feel sociable without a drink in your hand, a glass of sparkling mineral water with a slice of lime or lemon will do the trick.
  • You don’t need to avoid holiday treats entirely, but save your calories for the special items that you only eat once a year. And steer clear of the ‘everyday’ treats that you could eat any time.
  • Holidays can be stressful, which can lead to stress eating. Take time to rest and recharge. When stress is urging you to eat, have a soothing cup of tea or take a walk or jog instead.
  • Focus on all the positives that come with celebrating the holidays, and use that perspective to strengthen your commitment to your diet and exercise plan.
