Effortless Tips to Avoid Overeating During Holidays

December's menu of fatty foods and lazy days is always a diet-wrecker. Despite great effort, holidays arrive, and the turkey isn’t the only thing that ends up getting stuffed!

 

 

We tend to blame it all on Christmas and New Year Eves, when in fact, a few feasts of anarchic eating cannot be blamed for a wrecked health. Besides, it takes 3500 calories added to your usual energetic requirements, to be translated into half a kilo on the scale.

 

 

Choosing the healthier alternative of items commonly found on the dinner table can help you shrink your calorie bill, while still enjoying the party, and most importantly… the after-party.



Pre-dinner munchies:

Chips and dips out, vegetables are in. Be sure not to choose those munchies swimming in sauces and oils though. Give yourself a hearty serving of green soup or salad prior to smaller portions of your seasonal favorites; it will help you to eat less.

 

 

The booze:

Ever heard of the “Holiday heart” syndrome? Binge drinking during holidays can cause sudden heart arrhythmia, which may lead to shortness of breath, changes in blood pressure, and even sudden death. Drink responsibly and enjoy your eve soberly. Calorie-wise, avoid those drinks made with cream-based liqueurs and fruity syrups.

 

 

The feast:

Whether it is turkey, chicken, meat, or fish that is being served, you can always choose the leaner alternative. Avoid the fried foods, and choose a light sauce to go with the main course.

 


The sugary finish:

Your sweet tooth can also get its share from the healthy holiday table. To prepare lighter desserts, use artificial sweeteners and low fat milk; they can reduce caloric content by half, and your taste buds won’t even notice the difference.
