Healthy Holidays Tip 2: Managing Portions at Parties

HH-2016-Email-HeaderBetween large meals with family, get-togethers with co-workers and soirees with friends, it can be difficult to maintain your healthy eating habits when you’re constantly surrounded by unhealthy temptations. Not to mention, all these holiday obligations can make it difficult to make time to prepare healthy meals when you are at home. With a little planning though, you can stay healthy and still enjoy yourself when you’re not eating at home.

You don’t have to say yes to every food item passed your way. Avoid the unhealthy items that are not your favorite, while allowing yourself to indulge (moderately) in your favorites. See below for ways to politely decline food.

  1. so upset with myself today. Having difficulty with getting back on track. As of today I have regained 12-13#. This makes me sick & so ashamed after finally getting back to a very nice weight.
    Advised my hubby that I was going to make a strong effort to get back on track.
    One important thing I learned during my success a year ago is “don’t buy larger clothes, tight fitting clothes are telling me I need to take effort & discipline to make present clothes fit again”
