- Make up for it. If you have a Holiday dinner coming up, be sure to eat super healthy the day before and the day after to make up for the large meal at the dinner. You can also turn-up your workout routine to help compensate for the splurges.
- Workout. Don’t use the holidays as a reason to slack off. Stick to your exercise routine or get your heart pumping for at least 30 minutes each day… even (and especially) on the day of your holiday parties and dinners!
- Water! Drink plenty of water before, during, and after the feast! It will help with bloating and help fill your stomach, making it less likely that you’ll overindulge.
- Moderation. Enjoy everything but in reasonable portions to avoid that tired and overstuffed feeling, especially when it comes to carb-heavy dishes.
So go ahead: eat, drink, and be merry!
