The holidays are coming and for many, that can mean challenging situations that pose great risk on even the best healthy eating plan. On average, Americans gain about a pound at holiday time which may not seem like a lot but we usually don’t lose this pound. Long term, after ten years, you’ve put on a lot of extra weight. Short term, all the sugar, calories, sodium and fat that you’ve consumed during the holidays may make for an extra wrinkle and dull skin for the New Year. You CAN survive the holidays though with a few simple tactics. Here’s my top 10 list.
1. Party at home beforehand
2. Be the last in line
3. Drink all night - with a wine spritzer
Egg Nog = 350 calories BEFORE the alcohol for 1 cup
Vodka on the rocks (1.5 oz) = 96 calories
Martini (4 oz) = 160 calories
Wine (5 oz) = 100 calories
4. Avoid reindeer sweaters and any elastic waisted holiday outfit
