Tips to Stay Healthy During the Holidays

  • Drink lots of water and avoid drinks sweetened with sugar.
  • Limit the intake of cakes, pies, cookies and candy, only a few bites or a very small portion when desired.
  • Eat three meals a day, avoid saving up for one large meal.
  • Avoid going to parties and events hungry, eat a healthy snack prior to going.
  • Moderation is the KEY, avoid eating large portions of food or piling up your plate.
  • Don’t get to busy or forget to take your medicines. Please take your medicine everyday as prescribed by your doctor.
  • Eat at least a cup of vegetables with lunch and dinner, this will increase your fiber intake and help you stay full longer. It is okay to eat vegetables at breakfast also.
  • Include some activity in your day, be intentional about moving more.
  • Try to limit fried and fatty foods, they add lots of calories to your diet.
  • Do enjoy some of your favorite foods, but do so in moderation.
